The New York Yankees (72-43) will look to get back to their winning ways on their home field when they face the Tampa Bay Rays (60-53) in a key American League East Division MLB on TBS matchup on Tuesday. New York is 41-15 at Yankee Stadium this season. First pitch is set for 7:05 p.m. ET. New York is listed as a -170 favorite (risk $170 to win $100) on the money line in the latest Rays vs. Yankees odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while the over/under for total runs scored is seven (see up-to-date odds for every game this week on our MLB odds page).

Before making any Rays vs. Yankees picks, you NEED to check out the MLB predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every MLB game 10,000 times, and it is a 300-260 on top-rated MLB money-line picks since the start of the 2021 season. This is the same model that pegged the 2021 Atlanta Braves at 10-1 as one of three best bets to win it all last season. Anybody who has followed it has seen profitable returns.

The model knows New York will send left-hander Nestor Cortes (9-3, 2.67 ERA) to the mound. He has been sharp in his last five appearances, picking up two wins and three no-decisions in that span. In his last outing, a 4-3 loss at Seattle, Cortes picked up a no-decision despite pitching six innings, allowing three earned runs on three hits and one walk, while striking out 10. For the season, Cortes has walked just 29 batters, while striking out 125.     

The model also knows Tampa Bay left fielder Randy Arozarena has been on a tear of late, entering the series on a four-game hitting streak. He went 4-for-11 with a double, two homers and six RBI with three runs scored in the weekend series against the Baltimore Orioles. For his career, he has shown some power against the Yankees, registering five doubles, four homers and 13 RBIs vs. New York. He has also walked 11 times and stolen eight bases on 10 attempts.

Now, the model has set its sights on Rays vs. Yankees. We can tell you the model is leaning Over the total, and it also says one side of the money line has ALL the value. You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any MLB picks.
