On the mound for Tampa Bay will be Jake Odorizzi (10-8, 4.26 ERA), while New York counters with Luis Severino (13-6, 3.03). Odoroizzi sports a 1.26 WHIP with 123 strikeouts over 139 1/3 innings. He gave up one unearned run on three hits with nine strikeouts and two walks over six innings in a 9-6 win at Baltimore his last start. Odorizzi has a 3.95 ERA in 12 road starts. Severino holds a 1.05 WHIP with 221 strikeouts over 187 1/3 innings. He allowed three earned runs on five hits with three strikeouts and one walk in three innings during an 11-3 home win over the Twins. Severino holds a 3.86 ERA in 15 home starts.

The Rays are 76-81 and 37-42 on the road, while the Yankees are 88-69 and 48-28 at home. New York has won seven of the last 10 meetings and the over-under is 2-7-1 with the total going under the last five games.

On Tuesday night, the Yankees won the series opener 6-1 as Jordan Montgomery allowed one earned run over six innings to get the win. Aaron Hicks drew three walks and scored a run from the leadoff spot, while also saving runs by making a spectacular catch on what would have been a grand slam. Aaron Judge was 1-for-3 with a double, two walks, a run and an RBI. Ronald Torreyes finished 2-for-3 with a double and two runs. Blake Snell allowed four earned runs in one inning to take the loss. Kevin Kiermiaer was 2-for-4 with a run. Steven Souza went 3-for-3 with a walk.

Bet on Rays vs. Yankees

Odorozzi has been in fine form his last couple starts, while Severino is putting the final touches on a spectacular season. Both teams have some power bats, but we like the pitching to dominate in the Bronx tonight.
