Yankees can beat Toronto for the second time in a row
Having beaten Toronto in the first game of the home series, Aaron Boone's team can close out the winner in the second game. The Yankees recently closed 2-1 against the Blue Jays on the road, so a win at home could put New York on a season-long lead of more than one win already. That's important because the East division is the strongest in the American League. By competing against each other, the rivals can secure at least a wild-card position without enough fuss. The Yankees are now 21-8, three wins ahead of second-place Tampa Bay. Toronto are 17-14. Boston and Baltimore are already down by a significant margin.
Jameson Taillon will pitch for the Yankees in the upcoming game. He has one win and one loss against Toronto this season. Overall, the pitcher is 2-1 and has a 2.84 ERA in five starts.
Toronto haven't pulled away from Cleveland
Ahead of the series at Yankee Stadium, the Blue Jays played four games in Cleveland against the Guardians and conceded 21 injuries, losing three meetings. The team from Ohio was unexpectedly powerful and knocked Toronto out of contention. Charlie Montoyo's team is 17-14 and 6th in the American League standings.
Jose Berrios will pitch for Toronto in the second game of the series. The pitcher doesn't have the best 5.34 ERA in his six starts in the new league, but only because he allowed four runs over 0.1 innings in the season opener against Texas. All the more reason for a 2-1 win-loss record.
Expert Betting Tips
Toronto have crashed the series in Cleveland and lost the first game in New York, so they can't afford to lose in the second meeting at Yankee Stadium. Otherwise, Charlie Montoyo's team risks getting bogged down in the black. That's not likely to happen because Toronto will win the second game. There's a reason the Canadians are quoted as the top American League favorite of the season.
The prediction is a win for Toronto.
