AL East Rivals Set for Another Showdown
MLB betting will be a big focus on Tuesday night as there is a full slate of games from around the league. The Toronto Blue Jays host the New York Yankees for what should be one of the best games of the day.
New York comes into this game having won 10 straight games, and they have been doing everything well during this run. The Yankees picked up a 3-2 win on Monday night in Toronto and will look to stay red-hot.
Toronto has had a solid season up to this point as they are 15-9 and are right behind the Yankees. The Blue Jays have gone 9-5 in Toronto this MLB season and are looking for revenge in this matchup.
BetUS Sportsbook has the MLB lines as the Toronto Blue Jays at -125 on the moneyline on Tuesday night.
Yankees Getting Great Starting Pitching
Most people focus on the offense when talking about the Yankees, but this team has been getting dominant starting pitching. New York currently has a team ERA of less than 2.70, and that has allowed them to go on a big run.
Jameson Taillon will be on the mound for the Yankees on Tuesday night, and he has gone 1-1 with a 3.26 ERA to begin the year. New York also has a dominant bullpen, and they are a nightmare to deal with if they get an early lead.
Anthony Rizzo has been the best offensive player for the Yankees to begin the year as he leads the team with nine home runs and 21 RBIs. This lineup is full of big bats, though, and they can strike at any time.
Blue Jays Need Bats to Wake Up
Toronto has a terrific lineup on paper, but they just haven’t been able to click on all cylinders with any consistency. Manager Charlie Montoya said on Monday night, “Right now every game is close and we haven’t really got it going offensively.”
George Springer and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. have done their part on offense, but there are too many holes in this lineup. Springer leads the team with a .299 batting average, and Guerrero has a team-high six home runs and 16 RBIs.
Toronto will have the right pitcher on the mound on Tuesday night in Alek Manoah. The right-hander has gone 4-0 with a 1.44 ERA to begin the year, and he will be tough on the Yankees lineup.
Yankees vs Blue Jays Jays Head-to-Head
This is already the second series between the Yankees and Blue Jays this season, and each team has now won two of the first four games. This rivalry has been strong over the last few years, but it is expected to heat up this season.
Toronto has gone 7-4 over the last 11 games against New York.

Yankees vs Blue Jays Prediction
This will be a game that has plenty of focus for those looking to bet online, as it should be one of the best games of the night. Looking at recent scores is a great way to make MLB picks, but there isn’t much separation between these AL East rivals.
New York got the better of Toronto in the series opener, but it won’t take much for Toronto to bounce back. The Yankees got some dominant pitching on Monday night, but don’t be surprised to see the bats wake up for the Blue Jays.
There is a real home-field advantage in Toronto, and the Blue Jays will use that to their advantage. Toronto will break this game open late, and taking the Blue Jays at -1 ½ is the way to go in this matchup.
