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
