New York Yankees at Toronto Blue Jays Prediction

Throughout the season, it won’t be often that the New York Yankees will be the underdog on the moneyline. However, with Alek Manoah on the mound for Toronto, the Blue Jays are favored at -128. Toronto has now won 5 straight games with Manoah on the mound. In his last 2 outings, the Blue Jays right-hander has not given up a run across a total of 12 innings. Even with a matchup against a dangerous New York lineup, I like Toronto on the moneyline.
