Will update with trends once they're released.
It's not easy to predict the second game of a doubleheader without knowing what happened in the first game, especially when we don't have the starting pitchers listed. I'm going into this game a bit blind. However, the Rays have been one of the least profitable teams in the game up to this point with a -622 on the season, while the Yankees have been rather profitable with a +446 and that's with being favorites almost every time they take the field. And while we don't have a pitching matchup for this game, the Yankees offense has been one of the best in the business and it's something we can confidently get behind regardless of the situation. The Yanks offense is also due for a bounce back performance after last night. The Rays are 27th in batting average and not finding easy offense these days.
Give me the Yankees.
