The Bronx Bombers look to avoid getting swept in a three-game series North of the Border.

New York Yankees at Toronto Blue Jays

New York’s offensive struggles continued away from Yankee Stadium, as they average 4.5 runs per game on the road (15-14 O/U) compared to 6.7 at home (15-9 O/U).  The team had built some offensive momentum over its last seven-game homestand, scoring 55 runs in taking six of seven games.  The Yankees are still a solid 15-9 against the division and will look to improve upon its 13-9 daytime record in the series finale.  In order for this to happen, 1B Mark Teixeira must bounce back from an 0-for-6 performance that dropped his average down to .215 on the season.  He is hitting just .194 over his last 18 games.  The fact the lines maker has made the Yankees a road favorite in this contest is a bet surprising, which offers value in playing against a team that’s only 5-6 as a road favorite of -125 to -150 this season (-290).

Now that the first series of the season is out of the way in baseball, we have our first chance to look at what we have seen so far and which players have done things that we like. On guy who really jumps out on that front is Vernon Wells. The Toronto slugger is talented – MVP talented – but there is a disconnect somewhere near where his brain meets his body, and he has never really been able to capitalize on what he is capable of. So far this year, though, he’s on fire – four home runs in three games, and in just 10 at-bats he has six hits and seven RBIs. With guys like Adam Lind and Travis Snyder in town Wells doesn’t have to be the only big bat for the Jays, and expectations aren’t very high for the team, so maybe he’s finally in a situation where he can have the massive year he is capable of. He’ll be worth watching.
