A 1-0 record last night.

We took the scorching Lance Lynn and the Rangers over the Indians last night and he did not disappoint. 7 innings pitcher, 9 strikeouts and only 1 earned run. A beautiful start on a night that the Rangers offense went wild on the Indians for a 7-2 victory.

Our other tip saw the Phillies and Nationals game rained out. They play again today, but they have marked up the line +20 and there is a solid chance of rain again today. So we’ll be skipping that one again.

Just one tip that the system likes today.

New York Yankees vs. Tampa Bay Rays Betting Tips:

AWAY Rays Ryne Stanek (opener)
HOME Yankees J.A. Happ

When I first came across this one in the system today I saw the -153 and skipped right past it as the Yankees were listed as -150 today. A classic system matches the line game except there was just one problem: the Bet MLB System had the Rays at -153, not the Yankees.

Digging a bit deeper, it makes perfect sense. Happ has a 5.35 ERA/6.18 FIP in his home starts this season with homeruns being a real issue. His overall stats aren’t too impressive either with a 4.66 ERA/5.37. Throw in the recent struggles of the Yankees bullpen, a 121 FIP- over the past two weeks, and the Rays offense is looking pretty juicy tonight.

The Rays send Ryne Stanek as the opener and this will be a bullpen game for this. Our system of measuring bullpen games isn’t quite perfect because you never know who you are going to get, but some combination of Stanek+Ryan Yarbrough+ the rest of the Rays bullpen looks pretty good. On the season, the Rays bullpen has a 77 FIP- and is coming in here in good form.

Bet Rays +130
