Ricky's 7* play on TB RL.
Key Angle: It's important to remember that Ricky never makes a bet on any game based on just one angle. In order to make the grade, all his premium picks must meet several important criteria. He doesn't share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant. Here in this game the recent history of these two teams is particularly significant.
- The Rays are 24-8 in their last 32 during game 1 of a series.
- The Rays are 11-2 in their last 13 games as an underdog.
- The Yankees are 1-8 in the last nine head to head meetings.
Verdict: The Yankees pitching staff is in rough shape.
