Analysis of tonights Yankees game

I hope you all are ready for the New York Yankees vs Tampa Bay Rays game two tonight in the Bronx! The New York Yankees are 3-10 since the start of August, and have been mostly struggling since the All Star break. While the Yankees' season-long stats are still among the best in the American League, the team has seen both the starting pitching and the bullpen melt down in recent weeks, while the hitting has been very underwhelming.

After being shut out just once in all of July, the Yankees have already been shut out four times in August, including back-to-back games versus Boston and Tampa Bay. Gerrit Cole pitched extremely well in last night's opening game of the series, but the bullpen gave up three runs in the 9th, and the Yankees couldn't capitalize on any of their seven hits on the night.

What I'm betting on in the New York Yankees vs Tampa Bay Rays game tonight

The Yankees are struggling, and I don't see that ending tonight. BetRivers has the Rays at +155 - i'm taking that bet. If you're feeling squirrelly, take the under on total runs set at seven (-105). The Yankees' scoring issues are well documented, and these teams haven't hit well against each other this season - New York had hit .180 and Tampa Bay .177 going into last night's game. Both these teams also sit around the middle of the pack in team batting average. What are your picks for the New York Yankees vs Tampa Bay Rays tonight?
