MLB Betting: Toronto Blue Jays Leap over NY Yankees

MLB Betting: Toronto Blue Jays Leap over NY Yankees It’s been a long road to the top, but the Toronto Blue Jays have finally surpassed the New York Yankees for the lead in the AL East Division, owning a 1.5-game lead over the Bronx Bombers heading into Friday’s action.

Toronto has been on an absolute tear going 18-4 in their last 22 games overall – a winning streak that coincided with bringing in ace pitcher David Price.

Now that the Blue Jays have the division lead, don’t expect them to be complacent – this is a team we will be looking to back throughout the next month and a half.

Offensive production was never a problem for the Blue Jays – they lead the majors in runs scored by a whopping 100-run margin and their overall run differential is +170 (42 runs better than second-best St. Louis).

 

MLB Bettors should be paying attention to this team, as that awesome offense now has a legit starter and they are built perfectly for an extended postseason run. The online sportsbooks are beginning to raise the prices backing the Blue Jays when it comes to baseball betting, but if that winning streak has proved anything it’s that laying the extra juice is still worth the risk.

If you don’t like laying big juice, you can always back Toronto on the runline. The Blue Jays have won by at least two runs in 16 of those 18 wins, returning a massive return on investment for MLB runline bettors.

For the Yankees, they haven’t been able to handle the pressure of the Blue Jays breathing down their necks. New York has dropped 11 of their last 19 games overall, including a 1-3 series at home vs. a bad Cleveland team, and an embarrassing 15-1 blowout loss against Houston a few days ago.

If the Yankees slide continues, it could have a detrimental effect on the psyche and motivation of this team going forward. New York is still very much in the hunt for not only the AL East title, but also the AL Wild Card. However, if current trends continue, then the Yankees will be on the outside looking in come playoff time. Both teams meet up on September 10th for a four-game series that will potentially have huge implications in the division. For now, we’ll ride the Blue Jays at the online sportsbooks as long as they stay red hot.
