New York Yankees vs Toronto Blue Jays 5/17/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The New York Yankees will go against the Toronto Blue Jays in MLB action in Rogers Centre, CAN, on Wednesday, May 17, 2023, at 7:07 PM ET. Ace pitcher Gerrit Cole of the Yankees will start the game.


After allowing two runs in five innings against the Rays last weekend, Cole was not quite at his best lately, wasting four home runs in his previous two starts and earning a no-decision in a game the Yankees won.


The veteran is having a fantastic year, allowing two runs or fewer in all but one of his starts, compiling a stunning 2.22 ERA and 1.04 WHIP in addition to a 5-0 record in 56.2 innings.


Last month, Cole pitched 5.2 innings of scoreless relief against the Blue Jays. In 13 career matchups, he is 6-2 with a 3.48 ERA. 


Recently, the Yankees appeared to be a threat at the plate. The A’s pitching staff was destroyed by them last week, and they also took advantage of the Rays, scoring 22 runs in the final three matches of that series last weekend.


Without Giancarlo Stanton and Josh Donaldson, they are still competing. Next month, Stanton is expected back.


  • The total went OVER in 10 of the NY Yankees’ last ten matches.
  • The NY Yankees are 4-1 SU in their previous five matches.
  • The NY Yankees are 5-2 SU in their last seven games against Toronto.

New York Yankees vs Toronto Blue Jays Predictions 5/17/2023


Chris Bassitt will start on the mound for the ninth time this year. When Bassitt made his last start, the Braves were defeated 3-0, and Bassitt pitched a perfect game.


The veteran is locked in, pitching 16 innings without allowing a run. He also lowered his ERA to 3.49, 1.08 WHIP, and a 5-2 record in 49 innings thrown.


Bassitt limited the Yankees to only two runs over six innings in their lone career encounter.


The Blue Jays are in good form right now, going 6-3 in their previous nine games, including a weekend sweep of the Braves.


The team never lost a series at the Rogers Centre and entered Tuesday with a 3-1 record at home following a 7-4 setback.


  • The total went OVER in 11 of Toronto’s last 15 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 8 of Toronto’s previous 11 games against the NY Yankees.
  • The Toronto Blue Jays are 8-3 SU in their last 11 games at home.

New York Yankees vs. Toronto Blue Jays. The MLB pick for this game is the Toronto Blue Jays. The Yankees have a dismal road record this season, going 9-9.


Only five of their home matches have the Blue Jays lost. They won’t be pleased after dropping the first two games of this series. They were a tough group, and they’ll bounce back.


In addition, the Blue Jays have much experience against Gerrit Cole, the Yankees’ starter. Last season, the ace struggled against the Jays, giving up ten runs in 18 innings for a dismal 5.00 ERA.


Toronto starter Chris Bassitt will represent the underdog in this matchup. In his home park, he has a 2.73 ERA. The Toronto Blue Jays will win to a predicted score of 6-3.
