The New York Yankees and the Toronto Blue Jays will square off tonight from the Bronx. All odds for all games can be found at Bovada sportsbook.
Toronto is definitely at the point where they are playing for pride and will try to play spoiler the rest of the way. As a whole the Blue Jays have suffered from major injuries which has definitely affected their record this season. On Sunday Toronto lost 8-2 to the Orioles in what was a tough outing for pitcher Brandon Morrow. Tonight Toronto will send Ricky Romero to the mound was looking to win his first game in 10 outings. During that stretch he has gone 0-9 and has allowed 5 or more runs 5 times.
The Yankees look like they had American League East all wrapped up, but with Tampa’s recent resurgence they are now battling it out down the stretch. They need to get themselves on a winning streak and will be looking to do so at home this week versus the Blue Jays. They won 4-2 yesterday vs the Indians, but it was just their second win in seven games. David Phelps will take the mound tonight for the Yankees and he has pitched well in his last three starts allowing just 5 runs in 11 innings.
We like the Yankees as a run spread favorite in this game because we feel they know the importance of getting on a winning streak starting tonight at the sports book.
