Rays vs. Yankees, 7:00 p.m. ET

Moneyline pick: Rays -129

The Rays took Game 1 of their four-game series against the New York Yankees, winning 3-1 on Memorial Day. Tampa Bay has been one of the hottest teams in the entire MLB with a current five-game win streak. They’ve also won 16 out of their last 17 contests. Over the course of their latest win streak, Tampa Bay is averaging 4.6 runs per game.

Meanwhile, in the Yankees’ clubhouse, they have lost four straight games, which includes a three-game sweep at the hands of the Detroit Tigers. In their last four games, New York has struggled offensively, averaging 1.5 runs per game. It will not get easy for the Yanks to snap their losing streak as they will have to face Tyler Glasnow.

The Rays’ ace has been one of the best pitchers in the majors this season. Glasnow is 4-2 with an ERA of 2.57 through 11 starts this season. The 27-year-old has only faced New York once this season back on Apr. 17. Glasnow allowed 2 hits, 1 earned run, 4 walks, but had 7 strikeouts in 5.0 IP. The AL Cy Young candidate also possesses a 3.51 ERA and 2-1 record in six road starts this season. Glasnow should be able to shutdown this struggling Yankees’ offense, while the Rays do what they need to on offense against German to get another win.

Player Prop: Tyler Glasnow over 8.5 strikeouts (-106)

With the Yankees’ offense currently in shambles, this is a perfect spot to play Glasnow’s strikeout prop on Tuesday night. The 27-year-old is on the cusp of 100 strikeouts with 98 strikeouts in only 70 IP. He has gone over 8.5 strikeouts in 7 out 11 starts this season, and 3 out of 4 last starts.

Aforementioned, the Yankees’ offense is struggling as they are averaging 10 strikeouts in their last three games, which is higher than their season average of 9.15.
