Every time I've bet against Monty I've won money. But tonight is different. The Yankees will play their absolute best tonight, I can't say they'll win the series but they will be looking for men on bases instead of relying on home runs. Do I KNOW this? Am I an insider? Absolutely not. I'm not even close to being a Yankee fan either, but I just have a vision. If you don't trust my Yankees hunch, the over is locked up. You heard it here first. I only didn't put a sportsjaw $500 on it because I consider those my most premium choices... never lost on those yet.
The Rays are opting to go with opener Ryan Thompson, with Ryan Yarbrough expected to follow and throw the bulk of the innings. Thompson pitched a pair of scoreless innings in the Game 1 loss, but his regular-season outings against the Yankees weren't so clean, allowing four runs in four innings on seven hits.
Even more concerning is the heart of the Yankees lineup - Aaron Judge, Luke Voit, Giancarlo Stanton - are a combined 7-for-16 against Yarbrough, collectively slugging just shy of 1.000.
