New York Yankees
The New York Yankees look to continue winning ways when they head north of the border for a 4 game series against the Jays. The Yankees, before last nights loss to the Blue Jays, were on a 9 game winning streak and it didn’t look like there was anything that could stop them. In the finale of the series the Yankees will look to Masahiro Tanaka (7-6, 4.93 ERA) to take the mound.
Tanaka has had a pretty rough season, but especially rough as of late. In his last 4 starts, he has given up a total of 24 runs, but this may be a spot he can turn things around. Although Tanaka has been poor, he does have plenty of success against the Blue Jays during his career. Lifetime, he is holding the Jays to a .196 average a .256 OBP and has only surrendered 5 home runs in 112 at bats. If Tanaka is going to turn his season around, this looks to be the place to start.
Toronto Blue Jays
Although the Jays can be excited about some of their prospects this has been a particularly brutal season for the club. They rank toward the bottom of every defensive and offensive category outside of home runs where they rank 11th. The pitching, which already was bad, is likely to be even worse now that they shipped by far their best pitcher Marcus Stroman to the Mets during the trade deadline.
Looking to defend home turf the Jays turn to Trent Thornton (4-7, 5.55 ERA) who has really struggled since coming off the injured list where he dealt with elbow inflammation. His last start was especially poor where he gave up 6 runs in 3 2/3 innings. Unlike Tanaka, the reading does not get any better when you look at the individual matchup. Thornton has surrendered a .353 average to the Yankees and has already given up 3 home runs in the limited 34 at bats in which he has faced them in his career.

Free New York Yankees vs. Toronto Blue Jays MLB Prediction:
Maybe Tanaka has a good start and maybe he doesn’t in the end it may not matter too much they way the Yankees have been hitting the ball. I see the Yankees putting up 8+ here in this awesome matchup and hitter friendly ballpark.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Yankees RL
I do, however, think Tanaka has a quality start here and so I will go with the Yankees RL instead of the obvious play which would be the over. Bet the Yankees to win in a blowout.
