We did the splits Wednesday, but we are focused on sweeping our two top MLB picks on Thursday’s baseball slate. Let’s discuss this twin killing and continue to build our bankroll.

Yankees (60-52, -6.2 Units) at Blue Jays (53-60, -17.1 Units)
  • Toronto is 21-27 (-11.0 Units) when the total is 9 to 9.5 this season.
  • Toronto is 18-28 (-13.9 Units) against division opponents this season.
  • Toronto is 7-15 (-13.0 Units) after allowing 10 runs or more over the last two seasons.
  • New York is 23-14 (+4.3 Units) when the total is 9 to 9.5 this season.
  • New York is 27-19 (+7.0 Units) against division opponents this season.
  • New York’s starter Sonny Gray’s team record is 4-2 (+2.2 Units) when starting against the Blue Jays with an ERA of 2.54 and a WHIP of 1.30.

We cruised to an easy winner in our MLB picks Wednesday as the Yankees crushed the Jays 11-5 and will do so again tonight. This is the rubber game of this three-game set between AL East rivals, and the Bombers bats are en fuego, having averaged seven runs per game over their last three contests. Let’s back New York again and cash a winner!

Angels (57-58, +5.4 Units) at Mariners (59-56, +1.2 Units)
  • Seattle is 29-24 (+2.6 Units) when the total is 8 to 8.5 this season.
  • Seattle is 20-13 (+3.6 Units) at home when the total is 8 to 8.5 this season.
  • Seattle is 32-26 (+6.4 Units) after a win this season.
  • Los Angeles is 5-9 (-3.6 Units) when playing against a team with a winning record in the second half of the season
  • Los Angeles is 25-31 (-5.5 Units) after a win this season.
  • Los Angeles is 4-10 (-4.5 Units) when playing on Thursday this season.

These AL West rivals kick off a four-game set in Seattle and both are still in the hunt for wild-card berths. James Paxton will take the hill for the Mariners, and he has been dandy against the Angels in his six career starts with a 4-2 record, an ERA of 2.04 and a WHIP of 0.90. Seattle ace has been on fire over his last three outings with a 3-0 mark and a stunning 0.95 ERA with an equally stellar 0.78 WHIP. Let’s go with the hot hand and the better team with the home-field advantage as we will eschew the heavy juice that the MLB odds makers are asking and instead lay the 1½ runs.
