Blue Jays vs Yankees Prediction


There are a few different ways you could look to play this one, but we are going to stick with the Yankees to win and take them on the money line at -154. We do have this one being a close game, with our predicted final score being 6-5 in favor of the Yankees.

Another way you could look to play this one would be to take the over, as we have the line sitting at 8.5 runs and have these teams combining for 11 runs. However, we see more value in taking the Yankees to win and will be sticking with that.
