MLB Free Pick | Blue Jays at Yankees
The All-Star break is over and let’s be honest, that game was a boring affair. It went under like we thought it would, but what a snore fest. Now that the MLB schedule is nearing, or just over the 90-game mark, it’s time to get serious. It’s time to find five worthy teams to bet on, and five worthy teams to bet against. There are a lot of good teams this year and parity has taken over.
Game: Toronto Blue Jays (34-58, 16-28 Away) at New York Yankees (58-31, 32-14 Home)
When: 1:05 PM ET, Saturday, July 13th, 2019
Where: Yankee Stadium, Bronx, New York
Current Line: Toronto +216 Yankees -256 Total: 11.5
TV Coverage: MLB Network, Sportsnet, TVA Sports, YES
Probable Starters: Blue Jays LH Clayton Richard (1-5, 6.23 ERA) vs. Yankees J.A. Happ (7-4, 5.02 ERA)
However, there are definitely five great teams to bet on the rest of the way and easily five teams to bet against. The Yankees are number two on the list and today’s game is just as good as any to kick off my second-half betting season.
Top five to bet on – Dodgers, Yankees, Twins, Astros, Braves. Top five to bet against – Orioles, Royals, Marlins, Tigers, Mariners.
Honestly, we hate the numbers in this game and absolutely nothing hurts worse than laying big juice and getting an old-fashioned butt kicking! We don’t think this is today’s scenario, and one must love the Yankees in this contest with J.A. Happ on the mound for the Bombers, facing a “hapless”—Clayton Richard, (corny pun intended).
It matters not that Happ is obviously, the better man on the mound for this one… what matters more is numbers and Happ gives up runs, hits, and has given up 20 dingers.
ERA actually means something come this time of the baseball season. What you see is pretty much what you are going to get. Players fall into a routine (especially pitchers) and it usually plays out.
Richard gives up a boatload of hits, and he can’t buy a strikeout. This game is going over. We like the Yankees to win, however, the number is simply too rich for our blood. It’s these types of games that sharp players make a killing on, the other way.
The Yankees could lose this mess, (doubtful) but it could happen.
MLB Free Pick: Blue Jays at Yankees OVER 11.5

Sticking with the NFL on Saturday worked out for us, so let’s give it another try. San Francisco heads to Denver and both starting quarterbacks are expected to see some action. It probably won’t be for long, which will likely have an effect on our outcome. * Increase your bookie business 10 times, all while Read More…
I dipped into this series on Friday night, and although it didn’t come easy, I took the Giants +126 for the win. The Giants had a 7-2 lead going into the bottom of the 8th, only to allow 5 runs in the bottom of the 8th. Neither team scored in the 9th, both scored two Read More…
The NFL has been tough on me lately, but I’m going to stick with it for Saturday’s pick. In Week 15 of the 2019 regular season, Dallas and the L.A. Rams will meet in a game that will likely have playoff implications. This preseason Week 2 game is much less important, but it does have Read More…
