Toronto Blue Jays at New York Yankees Prediction

In this matchup between Toronto and New York, I recommend taking the over at 7 runs. Even though the Yankees scored just 1 run in their last game, look for them to have a good night at the plate against Yusei Kikuchi. Even though his ERA is respectable at 4.35, his expected ERA (5.27) and FIP (5.69) suggests he has been pitching worse than overall stats suggest. Look for a big scoring night from New York to push this one over 7 runs.
