The Yankees may have the best record in baseball, but it’s not because of the previous meetings with today’s opponent.
Toronto Blue Jays at New York Yankees
Toronto may be 14 1/2 games behind the Yankees in the AL East standings heading into this weekend, but the club has a 7-5 season series advantage coming into this three-game set at the Rogers Centre. The Blue Jays are also the first club to hit 200 home runs this season, led by outfielder Jose Bautista. The Major League leader with 43 home runs was named the AL Offensive Player of the Month in August for clubbing 12 long balls and driving in 24 runs. The club is averaging 4.4 runs per game on the road and hitting for a combined .241 average, but those numbers go up to 5.0 runs and a .258 mark against right-handed starters. Toronto has posted a disappointing 8-13 mark as a road underdog of +125 to +150 this season (-230) and the total is 11-9 O/U in those games. It’s also important to note that the team is 30-25 against division opponents in 2010 (+1,080).
While we wait for the offshore sportsbooks to post home run derby betting odds for the outright winner, we can glance over the opening home run derby odds for the player matchups. At first glance Miguel Cabrera looks like the bookmakers favorite to win the 2010 home run derby once betting lines are posted.
