Predictions and bets for Yankees @ Rays


August 9, 2020 8:54 AM

The Yankees and Rays return to action today after yesterday’s double header was evenly split.

Our model sees the Yankees closing this series out today with their third win in four against Tampa Bay.

Dimers' Suggested Plays

Lock: Under 8.5 (-115*)

Moneyline: Yankees (+115*)

Run line: Yankees +1.5 (-180*)


Yesterday’s double header saw runs with both games going over the total runs. Our model predicts this game to play out similarly to the first game of the series on Friday which yielded only 1 run. The Yankees also have a history of correcting course and locking down after a day of runs – The under is listed as 5-1 in the Yanks last six in games after they allowed 5 runs or more.


New York going into this game as underdogs despite currently having the upper hand in this series. We suggest taking the value on offer for the Yankees.

Run line

We don’t see the Yankees losing this one, but always, if you’d rather be safe than sorry, then by all means, take New York at the run line.

Dimers' take-out

This is shaping up as a great contest with some value for sports bettors. Take the under and then get the Yankees at the Moneyline to really juice up your tickets.
