Moneyline for Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa Bay Rays have a winning streak of five games in a row in their latest five games, while the Yankees lost their last four games against the Tigers and Rays. The Rays are also first in the AL East standings with thirty-five wins and only twenty losses, while the Yankees have twenty-five losses and twenty-nine wins.
Total Runs Under Eight
Four out of the last five fixtures between these two teams ended with under eight runs. The Yankees also have under eight runs in eleven of the last twelve games they played either home or away.
TB Rays -1.5 Run Line
If this game goes anything like yesterday’s Yankees vs Rays game, then we would put our money on the Rays beating the Yankees by more than a run, so this bet sounds reasonable, for now, but the Yankees might be planning to overcome the Rays this time around. We can only wait and see what actually will happen.
Will the Tampa Bay Rays Keep Their Lead or Let the Yankees Take It?
The Yankees didn’t have good luck against the Tampa Bay Rays in the 2020 season when they won only about 26.7% of the games against the Rays. This year out of the nine head-to-heads they played, the Yankees lost four of them, including the game on the 31st of May where they lost 1-3 to the TB Rays.
They will be trying to bounce back from the loss they suffered the day before and their starting pitcher will be Domingo German who has forty-seven strikeouts for this season. During his whole career, German has had thirty-one strikeouts against the Tampa Bay Rays.
For the Tampa Bay Rays in the last game, Manuel Margot and Austin Meadows scored the home runs and Randy Arozarena scored an RBI, too. The starting pitcher will be Tyler Glasnow who has ninety-eight strikeouts this season forty-three in his entire career scored against the Yankees.
The Rays are first with thirty-five wins and twenty losses in the American League East Division and have won twenty of their away games this season (lost only seven), which is good for them considering that the Yankees will be hosting these two upcoming games.
TB Rays & NY Yankees – Injured Players
The Yankees will be missing eight players due to injuries and they are all set to be back either sometime in June, July or are out for the season, as Aaron Hicks. Darren O’Day, Ryan LaMarre, and Asher Wojciechowski are also injured, but they are set to be back on June 1st, which means that they might make the final lineup if they are healthy enough and get the go-ahead from the doctors.
The Tampa Bay Rays have eight injured players, who definitely won’t make it on the game on June 1st, like Chaz Roe, Chris Archer, Cody Reed, and Nick Anderson. Yonny Chirinos is out for the season and Xavier Edwards is also injured but he is set to be back on the 1st, so we will see if he is well enough to join his team in the second game against the Yankees.
