Tampa Bay is 6-2 in their last 8 road games and 20-8 in their last 28 game one’s of a series. The under is 4-1 in Tampa Bay’s last 5 games. New York is 4-1 in their last 5 games and 2-8 in their last 10 game one’s of a series. The over is 4-0 in New York’s last 4 games. The over is 4-1 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.


These two teams played last weekend, with Tampa Bay winning two out of the three games in the series. Each game was decided by one run and the third game went to extra innings. Tampa Bay is starting Drew Rasmussen, who has allowed three earned runs or fewer in three of his last four starts. New York is starting Domingo German, who has allowed three earned runs over his last 13.1 innings pitched. These two pitchers went against each other last weekend, with New York winning by a score of 3-2 in that game. I think we are going to see another low scoring game and I like the under here.
