The New York Yankees and the Toronto Blue Jays wrap up their series from the Rogers Centre this afternoon. All odds for all MLB games can be found at Bovada sportsbook.
The New York Yankees are currently in first place by the slimmest of margins over the second-place Orioles. They did not help their quest for a division crown yesterday in a 3-2 loss to the Blue Jays. Andy Pettitte looked human for the first time yesterday allowing three runs in just over five innings of work. Taking the hill for his last start of the regular season this afternoon will be Phil Hughes. Hughes will look to do his part to get the Yankees into the postseason and will look to rebound from a pair of subpar outings in which he has let up 8 runs in 11 innings of work.
The season overall for the Blue Jays has been terrible, but they are relishing the role spoiler at the end of the season. They beat the Yankees yesterday 3-2 and even played well versus the Orioles earlier in the week. Their bullpen came up huge yesterday pitching six scoreless innings en route to the win. This afternoon on the mound the Blue Jays will hand the ball to Henderson Alvarez. He has been equally as bad in his last 10 outings only having four quality starts during that span.
This is obviously not a great pitching matchup, but Alvarez has been awful. Hughes has the capability of pitching great games and we think he will today given the circumstances. Give us the Yankees as a prohibitive moneyline favorite on the road so get sportsbook promotion codes.
