Rays heating up

Tampa has won five of its last six games after winning three of four from Baltimore this past weekend. The Rays are 55-40 on the season, 29-18 on the road and 48-39 with the under. Tampa has Blake Snell getting the start on the mound today. He is 5-7 on the season with a 4.70 ERA.

The Rays have the league’s top pitching staff, as Tampa posts a 3.33 team ERA with a 1.14 WHIP. At the plate, Tampa is putting up 4.72 runs per game while batting .255 as a squad. Brandon Lowe has been leading the team with 17 doubles, 16 home runs and 49 RBI. Lowe is questionable to play tonight due to a shine injury. Avisail Garcia is adding 15 doubles, 12 home runs and 45 RBI.

Yankees take series at home

The Yankees opened the second half of the season with a series win over the Toronto Blue Jays, including a 4-2 win at home on Sunday. New York is now 59-32 on the season, 33-15 at home and 48-40 with the over. New York has James Paxton on the mound today. He is 5-4 on the season with a 4.01 ERA.

New York is second in the league in scoring, averaging 5.63 runs per game while batting .265 as a team. On the mound, the Yankees have a 4.04 team ERA with a 1.28 WHIP. DJ LeMahieu is leading the team with 21 doubles, 12 home runs and 64 RBI while Gary Sanchez has 24 home runs with 57 RBI.

MLB Betting Trends

Tampa

The Rays are 23-5 in their last 28 Monday games and 6-2 in their last eight games following a win.

New York

The Yankees are 6-1 in Paxton’s last seven home starts and 7-2 in their last nine games against a left-handed starter.

Prediction:

Snell has not been able to find the success he has had in previous seasons this year. He has faced off with the Yankees four times this season and has a 5.29 ERA against them. New York hasn’t been putting up a lot of runs as of late, but the Yankees are still at home. Paxton doesn’t get deep into games, but he has taken minimal damage in most of his recent starts. New York is destined to break out of this scoring slump soon and even if they don’t, they can still win a low-scoring game against Tampa.

MLB Prediction: New York Yankees -145
