PUBLIC BETTING INFORMATION

As of this writing, 59% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Yankees to win on the money line. Meanwhile, 64% of the betting tickets are on the over.

OUR PREDICTION

Both of these pitchers showed a tendency a year ago of limiting damaging. Sabathia allowed more than four earned runs in just four of his 27 starts in 2017. Estrada doesn't generate a lot of ground balls but even though he allows plenty of fly balls, they tend not to equate to damage. The under is 5-0 in the last five meetings between these two teams, is 24-9 in the last 33 meetings in Toronto, and is 7-3 in Sabathia's last 10 outings versus the Jays.
