Why bet on the Toronto Blue Jays?

For the second straight game, the Toronto Blue Jays were on the losing end of a one-run decision. They’re now on a three-game losing streak and are currently five games behind the New York Yankees in the AL East standings following Tuesday’s 6-5 loss in The Bronx.

The Blue Jays went up 3-0 early in the second inning of Tuesday’s contest and had a 5-3 edge entering the ninth until the Yankees found a way to win in the end. George Springer hit a lead-off home run and went 2-for-4 for the afternoon, while Vladimir Guererro was kept in check again and is 4-for-16 over his last three starts with just one run to his credit during this span.

Toronto’s hoping that Jose Berrios (2-1, 5.34 ERA) has a much better showing on Tuesday than in his previous start. Berrios pitched just 4.2 innings in his first losing decision of the season on May 5 against Cleveland, surrendering eight hits and six runs against the Guardians. The Puerto Rican starter allowed just four runs in 19.2 innings of work over his last three outings prior to that loss.

Why bet on the San Francisco Giants?

There’s no slowing down the New York Yankees, who improved to 21-8 for the best record in the American League following their win over the Blue Jays. And unlike Toronto, New York has had better fortunes in one-run games, having escaped Monday with a 1-0 victory over the Texas Rangers to start a new win streak.

The Yankees are certainly living up to their timeless Bronx Bombers moniker of late. Aaron Judge knocked out a three-run walk-off homer out of the park to send the New York crowd in attendance to a frenzy. Judge now leads the majors with 10 home runs and breaking his deadlock for most HRs with teammate Anthony Rizzo. Fellow slugger Giancarlo Stanton also hit a three-run blast in the sixth inning for his seventh dinger of the season.

Even better news for Tuesday’s rematch with Toronto is that Jameson Taillon (2-1, 2.84 ERA) will be taking the mound. Taillon has yet to surrender more than two runs in each of his first five starts of 2022. The 30-year-old righty’s last start was on May 3 against the very same Blue Jays, allowing just five hits and one run to go with four strikeouts in six full innings of action.

Blue Jays vs. Yankees MLB Betting Trends

  • The Blue Jays are 1-5 in their last six road games.
  • Toronto is 3-2 against New York’s Taillon since the starter joined the Yankees in 2021.
  • The totals went over in five of Toronto’s last six games away from Canadian soil.
  • The Yankees are 10-1 over their last 11 home games.
  • NY is 4-1 in their last five meetings against Toronto this season.
  • The totals went under in three of New York’s last four homestands.

Blue Jays vs. Yankees Betting Prediction

All the signs point to another win for the surging Yankees, and having a reliable arm in Taillon as Wednesday’s starter further boosts their status as the favorites to complete the two-game sweep in New York. On the other hand, their last two wins have been very close affairs, and so too were Toronto’s last couple of losses. With that in mind, the Blue Jays’ chances of splitting their two-game road swing against the Yanks are better than it appears on paper, not to mention better returns as underdogs should they indeed pull off the upset on Wednesday.
