Why The Blue Jays Could Cover The Spread
Gausman is one of the best pitchers in the game. He has a 3.40 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 222 strikeouts in 172 innings pitched. He pitches well at home, and on the road, and he dominated the Yankees. In two starts against the Yankees, Gausman has thrown 14 innings, allowed just eight hits, struck out 21, and he has a 1.29 ERA. The Yankees have fallen to be one of the worst offensive teams in the MLB. If Gausman can continue to pitch well against the Yankees, the Blue Jays will cover the spread.
Why The Yankees Could Cover The Spread
King has been pretty good since stepping into the starting rotation. He has enjoyed a successful September, as well. In three starts this month, King has thrown 14 2/3 innings, allowed 15 hits, struck out 21, walked just two, and he has a 1.84 ERA. He has been able to pitch well against the Red Sox, Brewers, and Astros, so he was not pitching against bad teams. King has a lot of success this month, and he has pitched well against the Blue Jays this season. If he can continue to pitch well, and shut down the Blue Jays, the Yankees will cover the spread.
Final Blue Jays-Yankees Prediction & Pick
I am not sure what to expect in this game. Gausman has always been a good, reliable pitcher, and King is having a good year. The only thing that sways me towards the Blue Jays is the fact that King does not go deep into games. I will take the Blue Jays and Kevin Gausman to win this game and cover the spread.
Final Blue Jays-Yankees Prediction & Pick: Blue Jays -1.5 (+140), Over 7.5 (+100)
