Toronto Blue Jays at New York Yankees Predictions & Tips


New York are backed to win the opening game of the series.

The Yankees have struggled lately, but Toronto’s form is worse and their record against NY is rough.

  • NY Yankees have won 7 of the last 9 meetings
  • Toronto Blue Jays are 2-6 over their last 8 games
  • The two starting pitchers have a combined ERA of 9.20
  • The Over has cashed in 4 of the last 5 meetings

Head To Head


  • New York Yankees lead the regular season series 8-4
  • Toronto Blue Jays won 10-9 when the teams last met on June 19

Toronto Blue Jays Form


Toronto head to New York on the back of a win, but they have been in miserable form recently, going 2-6 over their last eight games.

This slump began at the start of last week as they were swept in a two-game series in Baltimore.

The Blue Jays’ skid continued with an 8-0 shutout loss at home to Cleveland, and although they took the second meeting their joy was short-lived.

They lost the final meeting with the Guardians before dropping back-to-back home games against Baltimore.

Toronto took the final meeting with the Orioles though, running out 4-2 winners when the teams met last night.

New York Yankees Form


August has been a miserable month for New York so far, with the Yankees losing 11 of their last 14 games.

An 8-6 defeat at home to Seattle on August 2 sparked a five-game losing skid that saw them lose one more time against the Mariners before being swept over three games in St Louis.

The Yankees briefly stopped the rot with a 9-4 win in Seattle, but they then dropped the next two meetings.

New York’s struggles continued as they lost two of their three games in Baltimore before losing back-to-back games in Tampa.

They did make a return to winning ways last night though, edging the Rays 8-7 at Yankee Stadium.
