Here is what the data is telling us for today's MLB games ⏬


Yankees @ Rays

BET: πŸ”₯
Rays at the moneyline FanDuel Sportsbook (+123)

πŸ“ˆ 3.2% edge on the sportsbooks

The Rays are on a four-game slide right now but coming up against the Yankees could be the motivation they need. With their current poor run of form, Tampa Bay's odds are out around +123 today which our model has detected a healthy edge against, meaning they're more likely to win than their odds would suggest.

Psst, if you sign up to FanDuel Sportsbook now, your first bet will be risk-free up to $1,000, meaning if you lose, you get a second go via bonus bets in your account!

πŸ“ˆ 55.9% probability

Yesterday saw us hit both of our Over/Under plays and we're back on the OVER today when the Cleveland Indians host the Detroit Tigers. 

These two played on Sunday when 12 runs were scored and according to our data, the OVER 8.5 looks good again here.
