Yankees Game Today: Yankees vs Blue Jays Lineup, Odds, Prediction, Pick, Pitcher, TV for Sept. 8
The New York Yankees will try again. Will it work this time? Who’s to say. We have no answers, and apparently neither does manager Aaron Boone.
On Tuesday, the Bombers dropped their fourth straight, falling 5-1 to the Blue Jays thanks to zero offensive production and Gerrit Cole leaving the game early with an injury. Luckily, the Red Sox and A’s lost, so New York didn’t lose much ground in the AL Wild Card race. It could be a lot worse.
The lackluster play really does need to stop for this team, however. You cannot follow up a 13-game win streak by losing eight of your last 10. They just threw away that run, which is now a much less attractive 21-10 over their last 31 games.
And in classic Yankees fashion, they will call upon a rookie to try and get them back on track. Because somehow a team full of veteran All-Stars can’t figure it out.
What Time is the Yankees Game Today?

What Channel is the Yankees Game on Today?
You can watch the Yanks and Jays on YES if you’re a local, or Sportsnet if you’re North of the Border.
Yankees vs Blue Jays Odds Today
Per WynnBET, there’s reason to believe the Yankees should be the favorites again. Haven’t the books learned by now? The Bombers are -125 on the moneyline (bet $125 to win $100) and a more generous +160 on the run line (bet $100 to win $160) if you take them -1.5 (they need to win by at least two runs in this scenario). The Jays are slight underdogs at +104 on the moneyline (bet $100 to win $104) but massive favorites on the run line at -190 (bet $190 to win $100) if you take them +1.5 (this bet cashes if they win outright or lost by one run). It makes sense, because the Yankees can’t score!
And speaking of scoring, the over/under is set at an unthinkable 10.5 runs, with the over at a generous price of +104 (bet $100 to win $104) and the under at -125 (bet $125 to win $100).
Yankees Pitcher Today
On Wednesday, it’ll be Luis Gil (1-0, 0.00 ERA) taking the mound for the Bombers vs Alek Manoah (5-2, 3.63 ERA). What a revelation, the Yankees decided to finally bring Gil back up after he made history by tossing three straight scoreless outings in his first three MLB appearances last month. He hasn’t pitched in the bigs since Aug. 17, though, for whatever reason, thanks to the genius braintrust running the show in the Bronx that has decided to give more innings to Andrew Heaney.
Both rookies have impressed in their 2021 campaigns, and Manoah actually dominated the Yankees in his MLB debut back in May to the tune of six shutout innings and seven strikeouts. He’s gotten roughed up as of late, however, surrendering a total of 15 earned runs in his last four starts (20.1 innings) … though the Blue Jays are somehow 3-1 in those games.

Yankees vs Blue Jays Prediction Today
Does any prediction make sense at this point? We thought Gerrit Cole would get the job done Tuesday, but he was knocked around and then left with a hamstring issue. We thought Jameson Taillon would stop the bleeding, but he surrendered two early runs. But it’s not even those guys’ fault! The offense has scored 15 runs in their last five games, with that inflated total thanks to a seven-run game against the Orioles on Sunday.
No reason to believe, at this very moment, the Yankees will turn it around. We have no evidence. Blue Jays win again, 6-2.
