Blue Jays at Yankees Odds, Line, Total, Favorite and Predictions – Free MLB Picks 4-30-11

Free MLB Picks and Odds: Toronto Blue Jays at New York Yankees Favorite, Moneyline, Total and Predictions 4/30/11: The Toronto Blue Jays opened their weekend series with the Bronx Bombers on a winning note, they were defensively flawless in a 5-3 victory. Ricky Romero, the questionable Jays’ ace, was solid in 6 innings of action. He gave up two runs and made a miraculous catch from a line drive off of Mark Teixeira’s bat, not only did the quick reaction catch save extra runs but it probably saved the Toronto ace from two months of injury time. Through the six innings of work, Romero was able to mow down the Yankees lineup with his deceptive off-speed pitches and his breaking ball had great movement all night long. The Jays will need Romero to live up to his billing this year for any chance of being in the mix come late September. This afternoon the Jays will send their rising star in Kyle Drabek to the mound for the sixth time this season. The rising Jays star has given hope and prosperity to the pitching rotation as he has been exceptional in each of his starts. If being the son of a Cy Young award winner is not pressure enough, the Jays young stud has been called on to pitch 30 innings already. He has pure stuff and his entire ensemble of pitches is grade A quality. He earned a no decision in his last start against the Yankees, but bailed his club out of many innings where runs accumulation were a threat. If he and Ricky Romero can form a formidable duo at the top of the pitching rotation then the Jays might be players at the trading deadline to bring in another stud on the mound. With Jose Bautista rekindling his swing for the fences and Adam Lind emerging, the sky is the limit for this fearless Jays club.

The Yankees will look to even the series this afternoon after an awful outing at the plate last night. They were baffled for 6 innings by Ricky Romero and his moving breaking ball, they managed to score 2 runs on the Jays ace. They will send ex-Jay A.J. Burnett to the mound this afternoon, he has proven that he still has what it takes to pitch in this league, but he is also showing that his inconsistent ways are still a part of him. He earned a no decision in his start against the Jays last week, but the Jays showed that they are not intimidated by his rising fastball. Jose Bautista certainly isn’t, he connected on a two run bomb to left centre in the Tuesday night affair. New York now sits 2.5 games up on Toronto for the AL East lead after last night’s loss, but the Yankees have come to expect tight series with this feisty Jays baseball club. Alex Rodriguez will look to get back on track this afternoon, he started off the season on fire but has since simmered down after taking a few games off with a shoulder injury. A-Rod has a new approach to the game and his work ethic has certainly improved from seasons’ of past, he will be leaned on heavily this year to get this club back into the World Series.

The complimentary play this afternoon will fall upon the OVER(Check the latest MLB Odds at SBG Global Sportsbook) . Last Tuesday night featured the same pitchers lining up tonight and both clubs were able to rattle the hurlers early. Toronto has an inside advantage hitting against A.J. Burnett as they had them under their wing for two seasons. It is quite evident that Toronto knows where he likes to go with his pitches in certain situations as Toronto swings on most of his pitches. The Jays have a lethal offense and I expect them to come out swinging against the fastball throwing Burnett. Drabek will face the Yankees for the second time this year, but this favors the Yankees. New York has always been great at film study and I expect they will now be a bit more comfortable swinging the bat the second time around against this young stud. The total has gone OVER in 8 of Toronto’s last 11 games when playing NY Yankees and has gone OVER in 4 of Toronto’s last 6 games on the road. The total has gone OVER in 7 of NY Yankees’s last 9 games when playing at home against Toronto. We will consider the bats to be swinging early on way to a high-scoring affair. Cheers!
