About Last Night
Yankees sweep DH against Red Sox
It’s too little, too late for the Yankees, but they will always take a doubleheader sweep of the rival Red Sox regardless of the circumstances. New York won by scores of 3-2 and 4-1 on Tuesday, so the teams are now tied in the standings at 73-72. Meanwhile, it was a successful night for Pickswise with a 2-0 sweep of YRFI/NRFI bets and a 1-0 record on MLB player props to extend us to an 11-3 run in that bet type!
A full 15 games in Major League Baseball
As is the case with almost every Wednesday, we have a full schedule of 15 MLB games on our hands. It includes the continuation of another Red Sox vs Yankees series in addition to the finale of the Padres and Dodgers’ 3-game set. Meanwhile, Atlanta has a chance to clinch the National League East title in Philadelphia. Don’t miss our MLB predictions.
Best Bet of the Day
MLB: Tampa Bay Rays ML over Minnesota Twins (-125)
7:20 pm ET, Bally Sports
The Rays and Twins finish a series on Wednesday afternoon after splitting the first two games. Dallas Keuche has made 6 appearances for the Twins, and somehow they have won 5 of those. Keuchel hasn’t really been all that good in most of them — his outings are short, and he gets knocked around quite a bit. Yet the Twins will keep running him out there, and they keep winning his starts. I imagine the Rays should do quite a bit of damage in the early innings and chase Keuchel from the game. Both of these bullpens are fantastic, so whoever comes out of those early innings with a lead is likely to keep it and that should be the Rays.
Quote of the Day
“He‘ll be the guy.”
— Jets head coach Robert Saleh on , who is expected to be the starter moving forward now that Aaron Rodgers is out for the year with a torn Achilles’.
