The New York Yankees (5-5) and Toronto Blue Jays (4-6) play the middle game of a three-game set Tuesday. First pitch is scheduled for 7:07 p.m. ET at TD Ballpark in Dunedin, Fla. Let’s analyze BetMGM Sportsbook‘s lines around the Yankees vs. Blue Jays odds with MLB picks and predictions.
New York took Monday’s opener 3-1. C Kyle Higashioka homered twice, plating all 3 of the Yankees’ runs, and RHP Gerrit Cole improved to 2-0 after tossing 6 innings of 3-hit, 1-run ball with 8 strikeouts.
Season series: 2-2
RHP Jameson Taillon is New York’s projected starting pitcher Tuesday. The right-hander yielded 2 runs on 3 hits with 0 walks and 7 K’s in 4 2/3 innings of a no-decision, eventual 4-3 loss to the visiting Baltimore Orioles Wednesday. It was his first start since May 1, 2019 after having surgery to repair a flexor tendon.

Money line (ML)
TORONTO (-120) is the STRONGEST PLAY – 1½ times your usual wager. The Blue Jays, who took 2 of 3 at Yankee Stadium to open the season, get the nod here due to the pitching matchup.
Ryu is a legitimate No. 1 starter. He might be 0-1, but he pitched well against the Yankees Opening Day and was a hard-luck loser at the Texas Rangers in Wednesday’s start when he allowed just 2 runs on 7 hits and 0 walks with 7 K’s in 7 innings of a 2-1 defeat.

Run line/Against the spread (ATS)
TORONTO -1.5 (+150) is worth taking a flier with a QUARTER-UNIT wager. Four of the Blue Jays’ last five wins vs. the Yankees were by 2 or more runs.
ATS records: Yankees 5-5 | Blue Jays 4-6
UNDER 9 (-110) is the way to go. All 4 games between the rivals this season played Under, the first three at Yankee Stadium and Monday’s tilt at Dunedin.
O/U records: Yankees 3-7 | Blue Jays 3-7
