In the last game between the Yankees and the Rays – the Tampa Bay Rays won with 3-1 thanks to home runs scored by Austin Meadows and Manuel Margot. In the last seven head-to-head games they played, the Yankees won only two of those games. The Rays are also at the top of the AL East table, while the Yankees are in third place. We are putting our money with the Rays as are the oddsmakers.
For the Yankees, the last seven games ended with less than nine runs, and the Rays, five of the last seven games ended with less than nine runs, including the last head-to-head between them which was on the 31st of May. There seems to be a tendency to not score many runs considering the Yankees’ average this season is 7.2 runs per game.
Betting on the Run Lines
We are counting on the run line because the Moneyline won’t give us as large of a payout, but if you place a run line bet, the odds are guaranteed to be better. If you bet on the Rays to win with at least one run difference then, you would stand to win more than if you bet on the Moneyline. The Rays can beat the Yankees by more than one home run as they showed in the May 31st game against them.
Match Preview of the Yankees vs Rays Game on Wednesday
Our Yankees vs Rays prediction states that the Rays have the upper hand and will most likely win the third game against the Yankees. Let’s take a look at why that is in our opinion.
There are injuries on both teams and the Yankees will have seven players out for sure considering that LaMarre, O’Day, and Wojciechowski are set to be back playing on the 1st of June. Aaron Hicks will be missing the entire season due to a wrist injury, while Luis Severino and Corey Kluber will be coming back sometime in the second half of July.
The Rays are out eight players, including Colin Poche, Jalen Beeks, Nick Anderson, and Cody Reed, who will be out until July and September due to injuries. Only Xavier Edwards who injured himself on May 26th will be questionable because he is set to be back on the 1st of June, but we don’t know if he will be healthy enough to play.
The Rays seem to be on a winning streak at least in the last five games they played, while the Yankees lost the last four, they played. We will most likely see that the Rays will solidify their place as the AL East winners and most likely take the AL East title for the fourth time, which will make it their second consecutive title since 2020.
The 2010s seem to be in favor of the New York Yankees with an overall head-to-head score for the decade 97-90, but the 2020s seem to be in favor of the Tampa Bay Rays who are currently leading 17-7 for this and the 2020 season combined. The Rays also won the last eight away games they played this MLB season and have won twenty away games overall compared to the seven away games they lost.
