With or without Manny Machado, Marwin Gonzalez and Freddy Galvis should get some consideration from the Yankees

The Yankees utility players, Ronald Torreyes (0.3 WAR), Tyler Wade (-0.1 WAR) and Neil Walker (-0.1 WAR) had a combined WAR of .1 in 2018, and while they are all serviceable as utility players or as players off the bench, this is an area where the Yankees could use an upgrade in 2019.

BBB Betting Tips: Rays @ Yankees 4/4


Yesterday we found out Sir Didi Gregorius is another avid reader of this blog. He knew how badly we needed a win and decided to take it upon himself to make sure we got back on track.  The hope is that we get a whole lot more of Didi shrugging like Jordan this season. It’s good for the Yankees, it’s good for baseball, and more importantly, it’s good for this blog.

Tampa Bay Rays @ New York Yankees (04/04)

Blake Snell (0-0, 0.00 ERA) vs. Luis Severino (1-0, 0.00 ERA)

Today is a perfect storm of overreaction for the betting lines. The Yankees opened yesterday as big favorites, but after a dominant win the line has sky rocketed to -240. Taking a look at the spread, -1.5 the Yankees still are favored at -130. The public clearly is all over the Yanks, with 85% taking the -240 money line. It’s insane, and way too high to bet on. The Yankees have their ace going today and stand a good chance to win. The issue is the amount of money that would have to be bet to make anything is not worth the risk. 

That directs us elsewhere: the over/under. Currently the line sits at eight runs. Blake Snell and Luis Severino both looked fantastic in their first starts. I anticipate they both keep that going this afternoon, and the Yankees win in a low scoring affair. Grab the under, and enjoy a great pitching duel.   

Final Call: Under 8 (-110)

Season Record: 2-3
