Tampa Bay is 4-1 in their last 5 Wednesday games and 5-1 in their last 6 games against the AL East. The under is 3-1-1 in Tampa Bay’s last 5 Wednesday games. New York is 27-9 in their last 36 Wednesday games and 2-11 in their last 13 games. The over is 10-3-1 in New York’s last 14 home games. The under is 8-3 in these two teams last 11 head to head meetings.
The Yankees have had a very good season, but have really played poorly over the last two weeks or so. New York has lost two of their last thirteen games and their offense has gone silent. The Yankees will turn to Domingo German in this game, who has allowed six runs over his last 20.2 innings. The Rays will start Corey Kluber, who has allowed 14 runs over his last 17.2 innings. I like the Yankees to get back on track in this game against Kluber, who struggled in his last outing. I am taking the Yankees to win by at least two runs.
