MLB Odds: Time Running out as Jays Host Yankees

Despite everything that has gone wrong this season, the Toronto Blue Jays (52-59, –16.49 betting units) are only five games out of the second Wild Card spot in the American League. They’ll try to cut into that lead with a crucial three-game series at home against the top AL Wild Card team, the New York Yankees (59-51, –6.32 units). Game 1 is Tuesday night at 7:07 PM ET on Sportsnet and YES.

For the most part, JA Happ (4.40 FIP) has pitched reasonably well since coming off the DL in late May, providing seven quality starts in his past 10 outings. But the Jays keep finding new ways to lose; they’re 5-10 behind Happ this year for a loss of 7.28 units, with the under checking in at 9-4-2. Toronto’s lineup is also riddled with injuries, catcher Miguel Montero (groin) being the latest victim.

Veteran CC Sabathia (4.40 FIP) will represent New York in this lefty-on-lefty battle, and while he shares the same FIP as his Toronto counterpart, the Yankees are 13-5 behind Sabathia for 8.07 units in profit, with the under once again prevailing at 12-7. That includes a 2-1 record (1.40 units) versus the Jays.

MLB Odds: Snakebitten Jays Host Yankees

Time is running out on the Toronto Blue Jays (52-59, –16.49 betting units). They’re five games out of a Wild Card spot in the American League, and they need a win this Tuesday as they open a three-game series at home versus the New York Yankees (59-51, –6.32 units). First pitch is at 7:07 PM ET on Sportsnet and YES.

Toronto will send JA Happ to the mound opposite CC Sabathia in a battle of veteran southpaws. Each has a 4.40 FIP on the season, but the Jays are 5-10 behind Happ, while Sabathia has a team record of 13-5.
