Atlanta Braves DFS SPIN
Ronald Acuña Jr. is considered day-to-day after an MRI revealed a mild abdominal strain. Well, that's the best news the Braves and fantasy managers could have asked for here. Acuña was forced to exit Sunday's game due to the injury, but it appears he will be able to avoid a trip to the injured list. Just expect to be without him for the early part of this week, at the very least.
New York Yankees DFS SPIN
Giancarlo Stanton blasted his third homer of the season on Sunday, but it wasn't enough to help the Yankees stave off a three-game sweep at the hands of the division-rival Rays. Stanton tattooed a 109 mph line-drive laser beam into the right field seats off Rays' opener Andrew Kittredge to put the Yankees on the scoreboard in the second inning. It was his lone hit in three at-bats. The 31-year-old middle-of-the-order run producer has left the yard twice over his last three games, but the Yankees remain mired in a season-long offensive tailspin. With the loss, New York fell to 5-10 overall and own the worst record in the American League this season.
Braves vs. Yankees Betting Prediction
The Braves are just 5-13 in their last 18 meetings with the Yankees and are 0-4 in their last four games in the Bronx. The Braves have also dropped four of their last five games in interleague play as an underdog and are 8-18 in their last 26 games as a road underdog. On the other side, the Yankees are 39-13 in their last 52 home games versus a team with a losing record, are 60-22 in their last 82 home games versus a right-handed starter and are 73-29 in their last 102 games as a home favorite.
