The Blue Jays (4-2) have taken two of the first three games of the series against the Yankees (3-3) and can win the series with a victory on Thursday.

New York is a -135 favorite in the latest Yankees vs. Blue Jays odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while Toronto is a +115 underdog.
First pitch is 7:05 p.m. ET. The game is one of 11 on the MLB schedule on Thursday.

The model, which simulated all 11 games on Thursday’s schedule 10,000 times, likes Toronto (+115) to beat New York. One of the reasons is Vladimir Guerrero Jr., who is on a tear to start the season. The power hitter leads the team in batting average (.391), home runs (four), RBI (eight), slugging (.957) and OPS (1.373), among other categories. On Wednesday he hammered three home runs against the Yankees, despite having his right hand stepped on during a play at first base.
In addition, George Springer has been red-hot to start the season. After playing just 78 games last year, the dynamic centerfielder ranks second on the team in several categories, including batting average (.370) and OPS (1.117). On Wednesday he had a key hit, driving in the go-ahead run in the seventh inning of the team’s win.
