9* Thursday MLB NYY/TOR
Toronto vs. NY Yankees,
04/25/2013 19:05 EDT,
Score: 3 - 5
Total: -110/+8½ Under
New York & Toronto under 8.5
The New York Yankees host the Toronto Blue Jays in game one of a four-game set on Thursday. New York is coming off a 3-0 loss to Tampa Bay, while Toronto beat Baltimore in their last contest, 6-5.
This same pitching matchup took place in Toronto last weekend, and it was the only game in the three-game series between these two teams that played under the total.
Hiroki Kuroda has been lights out for the Yankees, posting a 2.35 ERA with a 1.00 WHIP thus far into the season.
While other pitchers have struggled at Yankee Stadium, Kuroda has thrived there. In 21 starts in his home digs, Kuroda’s ERA is 2.65.
Kuroda has allowed only one run over 16 1/3 innings of work over his last two starts.
The Blue Jays counter with Mark Buehrle. A rough start to the season has given way to back-to-back solid outings from Buehrle.
His aggressive pitching style in which he works quickly and pounds the strike zone works well against a Yankees team that likes to slow the game down and take pitches.
Expect Buehrle to work out of many favorable counts on this night against a depleted Yankees lineup.
The under is 7-0 in New York’s last seven home games. Take the UNDER.
Good Luck, Razor Ray
