Toronto at NY Yankees Pick

Toronto (2nd - AL East) at NY Yankees (3rd - AL East)
Where: Yankee Stadium
When: April 19, 2018 6:35PM EST
Moneyline: Jays +147 / Yankees -157
Over/Under: 9
By expert handicapper Rich Crew

The Jays head to the Bronx in New York to take on the Yankees in the first of a four-game set. The oddsmaker lists the host Yankees as a heavy -157 favorite on the money line with the total line listed at nine runs.

Toronto comes into this game riding a four-game winning streak where they outscored their opponents 39 to 16 runs. The Jays extended their series streak without a loss this season to six winning five straight after splitting their opening series. Toronto has fared well on the road this season with a fine 7-3 mark.

New York last played on Tuesday when they were pounded 9-1 by the Marlins. The defeat broke off a mini two-game win streak and had a moderate 3-2 record over their last five games. At home, this campaign the Yankees are playing at a .500 level going four and four in their eight games as a host

These two clubs played four games at the Rodgers Centre to open the season where each club took two games. The Yanks took the first two with the Toronto hitters not hitting their stride until the third match-up where they came out on top 5-3 and closed out the series with a 7-4 victory. Three of the four games went OVER the total.

Pitching Match-Up

Aaron Sanchez: The Blue Jays send Sanchez to the mound to make his fourth start and second versus the Yankees this season. In the earlier outing against New York, he was making his first start of the season and found himself in trouble early and often giving up four runs over 5 2/3 innings on eight hits and four walks. In his career, he has made four starts recording a quality start in all but the latest.

CC Sabathia: The Yankees starter is coming off a stint on the DL list for a sore hip and will be making his first start since April 6th. In that start, he allowed three runs over four innings on just four hits but was taken long three times in the team loss. Prior to that was his opener against the Jays in Toronto where he gave up two runs (one earned) over five innings in the New York victory. Sabathia started five games versus the Jays last season, and the team won three of the starts.

Betting Trends

Public Money

The public has shown a fondness for Toronto backing the Jays in 56% of the money line wagers. The O/U betting shows 60% on the OVER side of the total.

Jays at Yankees Prediction 4/19/18

The Jays are on fire winners of seven of their last eight games with their explosive offense the common factor in the wins. I believe they have an edge in the starting pitching with Sanchez on the mound. He didn’t have the sharpest game in his most recent against the Yanks, but he was making his first regular-season start since last July. He has looked better in his two since then with back to back quality starts, and he had three previous QS in his only other career starts vs. New York. CC Sabathia has great back numbers overall against the Jays line-up, but the top guns this year excluding Curtis Granderson have all had success against him. The value here tonight is on the visitor.

How to Bet Baseball

Moneylines - The most common of baseball bets. Beautiful too, as they create a situation where you can win less than 50% of your bets and profit by betting underdogs!

Totals - The easiest wager to beat in all of sports betting. There's a reason why sportsbooks have lower limits on over/under bets!

Runlines - A wager that creates a point spread where a team is either -1.5 runs or +1.5 runs. Underdog run lines are a great bet for game in which you predict a slim margin. Favorite moneylines pay well and are great bets for potential blowouts.

Alternative Runlines - Turn a favorite into a +2.5 underdog! Turn an underdog into a -2.5 run favorite. You better know what you're doing before betting these lines or your bankroll will resemble the action of a craps table.

Parlays - This type of bet is the reason many bookies drive cadillacs. Big risk; big payouts!

Prop Bets - Similar to totals, these are easy to beat if you do your homework. Avoid the ones that look easy though as they're surely sucker bets.

Futures - A great bet for recreational bettors who only want to spend a few bucks and have something to root for all season. There's a big payout if you're right!

Season Wins - Bet on teams to go over or under the posted total. Fading public opinion can make you money with this type of wager. Especially with public teams.
