With enough games to play for changes atop the divisions to happen, MLB betting fans don’t really want to put too much emphasis on a single series. That said, you cannot ignore the importance of the Toronto Blue Jays heading into New York to face the Yankees over the next few days. The Jays hold a 1.5 game lead atop the AL East, and know that a win in this series might be enough for them to put a real stranglehold on the division title. The first of the 4 games will be played on Thursday night.
An In Depth Report on the MLB Odds Preview on Toronto Blue Jays at New York Yankees & Game InfoDate/Time: Thursday, September 10, 2015 7:05 PM ETVenue: Yankee Stadium, Bronx, New York CityTV: YESRadio: WFAN 660/101.9 FM, WADO 1280 (Sp.)David Price (14-5, 2.43 ERA) has compiled a 5-1 record in his 7 starts with the Jays since coming over from Detroit.The chances of the Yankees (77-60) winning the division were reduced somewhat with the announcement that Nathan Eovaldi is about to be shut down for the remainder of the regular season. Eovaldi has been far and away the best pitcher on the Yankees staff this season, and they are sure to miss the 4 or 5 starts that he would likely have had the rest of the way. This news is on top of the injury that is likely to keep Mark Texeira out of the line-up for the stretch run, too.The Yankees have overcome a lot of obstacles this season, and there is no reason to believe that they won’t find a way around these ones. Luis Severino (3-2, 2.04 ERA) is coming into this start on a 3-game winning streak.
