Yankees Rays Odds Matchup Report
The two top teams in the American League East play the middle game of their three-game series on Tuesday as the Tampa Bay Rays host the New York Yankees. Both teams are almost assuredly going to be in the playoffs so this baseball betting series is really just to show who is boss, just like last night's terrific extra-inning battle proved.

SBG Global current Yankees Rays moneyline: Rays - 143, Total 9 Under - 120
It is an interesting pitching matchup on Tuesday. It is not last night’s epic where CC Sabathia faced David Price but it is still a good one. Ivan Nova gets the call for New York while Matt Garza goes for Tampa Bay. Nova has been very good for the Yankees and he is pushing Javier Vazquez and possibly A.J. Burnett right out of the rotation. Andy Pettitte is close to returning and it could be Nova who ends up as the fourth starter in the playoffs if that is the route New York goes. Nova is 1-0 on the MLB betting season with a 2.92 ERA. The Yankees are 3-1 in his starts and he has a 3.32 ERA over 21 2/3 innings as a starter.
