Betting Odds: Rays ML (-120) - Over/Under (8)
Pick: Rays ML (-120)
Sunday afternoon, takes us to Tropicana Field where the New York Yankees finish off a series with the Tampa Bay Rays on the road. New York will be looking for a crucial victory as they look to get themselves back in the wildcard race, while Tampa Bay will be looking to pick up a victory to get themselves back within striking distance in first place in the American League East division.
The New York Yankees looked to be on track to having a solid season until the All-Star break came around. For what seems like yet another season injuries started a pile up for them and they found themselves in a massive slump heading into and coming out of the All-Star break this season. The New York Yankees currently find themselves in last place of the American League East division and they are the only team in the division that currently has a losing record as well. They have a long journey back to the mountain if they want to get themselves back into playoff contention over the last month and a half of the 2023 Major League Baseball regular season.
The New York Yankees have not had much luck against Tampa Bay this season, and they will be looking to turn things around in the finale of this series on Sunday afternoon at Tropicana Field. Both of these teams have managed to pick up a victory throughout the first two games of the weekend, and the winner of this one will take two out of three games and win the series. This is virtually a must win game for the New York Yankees at this point in the season and they will have to bring their best game if they want to get a victory over a Tampa Bay team that is very tough to beat at home. They will certainly have to be a lot more productive at the plate as they were unable to score in Saturday's loss to Tampa Bay.

Tampa Bay is having a fantastic season this year and they will be looking to keep the momentum rolling in the finale of their series against the New York Yankees on Sunday afternoon at home. They are currently in second place of the American League East division, and they will be looking to pass up Baltimore and they will have to string together some more victories if they want to do so, as Baltimore has been the best team in the American League this year. They will be looking to use the momentum from their shutout victory over New York on Saturday afternoon to pick up a second consecutive victory over the Yankees here on Sunday afternoon to wrap up this series.
Tampa Bay has been a very difficult team to beat at home this season, and they will look to stick to that statement with another victory here on Sunday afternoon against a struggling New York Yankees team. Tampa Bay is currently on a one game winning streak, and they have picked up five victories in their last six games of the season. They will be looking to pick up their 80th victory of the season as they come into this game with a record of 79-52 through the first 131 games of the 2023 Major League Baseball season. They have picked up seven victories in their last 10 games on the season and I will be looking to grab another one here on Sunday afternoon.
Betting trends to consider in this matchup:
- Tampa Bay is 44-23 at home
- Tampa Bay is 47-31 after a win
- New York Is 26-34 on the road
I have to give the edge of the Tampa Bay and this one as I look for them to pick up their second consecutive victory of this series and take two out of three games from the New York Yankees. I expect Tampa Bay to grab a comfortable victory in this game here on Sunday afternoon to give themselves plenty of momentum heading into the final days of August as well.As always, get our VIP Pick Free Tonight by Clicking Here!
