How about one more game?

Not likely, huh?

With 60 dingers this season, there’s a good chance the New York Yankees outfielder will tie, if not break, Roger Maris’ American League record of 61 at Rogers Center, where the No. visit the Toronto Blue Jays for a three-game series.

Judge is listed on FanDuel at +220 to go sort tonight.

Seems like a bet to jump on.

According to StatMuse, Judge has a career batting average of .364 (8 for 22) against Kevin Gausman, the Jays’ starting pitcher tonight.

That total includes three home runs and six RBIs in 28 plate appearances.

Gausman has also struggled with the long ball lately, giving up seven homers in his last five games.

Either way, if not tonight, Judge will nearly tie the record on Tuesday or Wednesday.

He’s hit 27 career home runs against the Jays, more than any other team except the Baltimore Orioles (35), and 11 of those have come at the Rogers Center, where he’s batting .254 for 122 batting.

Judge’s overall numbers against the Jays include a .293 average for 331 at bats.
