New York Yankees vs. Toronto Blue Jays (7:07 PM ET)

Line: New York Yankees vs. Toronto Blue Jays – view all MLB lines

Masahiro Tanaka (8-10, 4.93 ERA) has been a picture of excellence on the mound over his last two starts, in which he has allowed just two earned runs on eight hits with 21 strikeouts across 14 total innings, going 1-1 in the process. He was impressive on the first half of that split, putting K’s on the foreheads of 14 Tampa Bay Ray hitters in a 6-1 home win on Jul. 28, when Tanaka threw for eight innings and gave up just one earned run on two hits.

The Yankees are 3-1 in Tanaka’s last four starts in Toronto. Over at the side of the Blue Jays, the team will have Cesar Valdez (1-1, 7.63 ERA) starting again. Valdez appeared to be in need of a therapy following a poor outing in a 16-7road loss to the Houston Astros on Aug. 4, when the right-hander was pounded for six earned runs on six hits in 3.1 innings of mound duty. Toronto bettors should be notified that Valdez has a 20.25 ERA in his past two starts.

Writer’s Prediction

New York wins, 7-4.

Houston Astros vs. Chicago White Sox (8:10 PM ET)

Line: Houston Astros (-210) vs. Chicago White Sox (+180); total: 10 view all MLB lines

The Astros have a very large lead atop the American League West standings, so Collin McHugh should be able to pitch without much pressure later tonight. McHugh has yet to get a W this year after missing most the season with an elbow ailment.

While he’s 0-0 in three starts so far, McHugh has actually pitched well in his last three starts, limiting the last two opponents to only two earned runs combined in 12 innings total. As for the careening White Sox, the South Siders will get to see Miguel Gonzalez work his craft on the hill. Gonzalez is just 5-10 with a 5.15 ERA in 17 starts this season, though he’s been better at home, where he is 3-3 with a 3.71 ERA in seven starts at Guaranteed Rate Field.

Writer’s Prediction

Houston walks past the White Sox with a 5-3 win.
