Today’s matchup is between the Tampa Bay Rays (35-22) and the New York Yankees (31-25). The Rays have won 4 of their last 5 games & the Yankees have won 1 of their last 5 games.

The Rays are starting Ryan Yarbrough (LHP), on the mound who is 2-3 on the season pitching a 4.26 ERA, 4.20 FIP, .316 wOBA, K% of 19.5%, BB% of 5.0%, 84.2 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.21 WHIP in 57.0 innings pitched.

The Yankees are starting Gerrit Cole (RHP), who is 6-2 on the season with a 1.78 ERA, 1.73 FIP, .232 wOBA, K% of 36.9%, BB% of 3.4%, 90.3 MPH average exit velocity, and a 0.83 WHIP in 70.2 innings pitched.

The Rays are 17th in the Majors in Relieving Pitching (WAR) while the Yankees are 4th.

On the hitting side, the Rays have a .313 wOBA and a .316 OBP. The Yankees have a .304 wOBA and a .315 OBP. The Rays have 69 HRs this season while the Yankees have 64 HRs.

Betting against Gerrit Cole at this point in the season isn't a smart move. No line has been released yet but I like the Yankees to win the game.
