Point Spread: 1.50 | -139.00 Tampa Bay (Home)
Tampa lost the first game of this series by a score of 4-2, but the Rays then bounced back yesterday with a the 5-4 victory. This series has so far been tight and competitive and that's exactly what I'm expecting in the finale as well. We have two really good pitchers going head-to-head here. The home side goes with Shane Baz, who is 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA. This is his third start of the season. After stumbling in the first, he allowed no runs over 6 innings in his second. Jordan Montgomery is 3-1 with a 2.72 ERA for New York, but note that he's a pedestrian 4-4 with a 5.02 ERA lifetime vs. Tampa. In a contest that I see being decided late, or even in extras, I'm grabbing the Rays on the runline option!
