New York Yankees
It is going to be hard to slow down the Yankees as long as they are the top scoring team in the Majors and own the third best ERA. The reality is that you have to get to this team early and even sometimes that is not enough because of their ability to play catchup with the long ball.
This looks like it could be a spot for CC Sabathia. The big lefty has been really good this season and in his last outing, he pitched more than he has all season against this same Tampa team. He took the loss but struck out 10, a season high. Only got one run of support but that almost never happens.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays are hanging in there for the most part. They are definitely not in the same class as the Yankees in any which way but they have an ability to drag team down to their level. It is hard to see that here in a general sense.
Ryne Stanek has been key in the Rays new pitching philosophy. He has made six starts and in all but one has not given up a run. The Rays have only won 2 of those games though so it is hard to say that it is the right approach even though I find it very interesting. The rest of the team has a lot to say about those results of course.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: New York RL
Obviously there are no guarantees but I can’t recommend the Rays when they try and cobble together a game like this. Too many unknown variables and they are playing the best team in the league.
