Tampa Bay is listed as a -125 road favorite while New York is a +105 home underdog. The total for this game is set at 8.5 runs.

Starting Pitching Matchup

Zach Eflin will start for the Rays and is 4-1 with a 2.91 ERA and 35 strikeouts this season. Clarke Schmidt will start for the Yankees and is 1-3 with a 5.35 ERA and 43 strikeouts this season.

Matchup History

New York’s 9-8 win over Tampa Bay on Saturday made it back-to-back wins for the Yankees in this head-to-head matchup.


Tampa Bay is 30-11 in their last 41 games overall and 1-4 in their last 5 road games while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 Sunday games. New York is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall and 72-33 in their last 105 home games while the over is 7-0 in their last 7 games overall.


I’m backing the Rays here. I’m just simply not a Clarke Schmidt fan, and while the Rays had a bit letdown with that blown lead on Saturday, I just think the Rays are not a team that stays down for very long when they get knocked down. I’ll back the Rays at the reasonable price in this game.
