Ricky's 7* play on the over.
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 over is 6-1 in the Yankees last seven playoff games.
- The over is 11-3 in the Yankees last 14 versus the American League East.
- The over is 4-1 in the Rays last five playoff games as an underdog.
Verdict: Gerrit Cole allowed three runs on six hits in Game 1.
