3 units on Tampa Bay +1.5 runs -130 (runline) (risk 3 to return 3)  RESULT: win

Don't look now but the Rays are 22-16 and looking down on the Yankees in the AL East. They have won five in a row and look forward to hosting the Yankees - a team they have given fits to over the years. The Yankees send their ace to the mound but will New York produce enough runs for him to notch a win? With A-Rod still out, New York is batting just .259 and scoring 4.1 runs per game on the road. They are 12-16 in night games. Tampa Bay has done very well vs. RHP this season posting a 16-10 record, scoring 5.1 runs per game. Edwin Jackson has been good this year and over his last three starts he's posted a 3.32 ERA giving up just 7 runs and one long-ball over 19 innings of work. The Yankees are just 18-24 over the past two seasons when facing a pitcher that gives up less than 6 his per game. They are also just 49-47 the past two seasons at -125 to +125. Over that same span they are 1-9 when the total is 8 or 8.5! We'll take the upstart Rays here as a live home dog.
