4 units on Tampa Bay +112 (moneyline) (risk 4 to return 4) RESULT: LOSS
The Yankees have won nearly 100 games over the past several seasons, but one place they struggle the most is their first game after the intense series with the Red Sox. It doesn't matter who they play, what the pitching matchup is, the emotional letdown takes its toll. The Yankees are just 6-10 after the Red Sox over the last three years and have allowed 6.5 runs per game. Last year they were 2-4, which included losses to Tampa Bay by scores of 10-8 and 9-1. We will opt for the value and back the Rays in this one.
