The Rays and Yankees meet up in the Bronx on Tuesday night after both teams were off on Monday. The Rays are off a 6-0 win over the Minnesota Twins salvaging the series and avoiding a sweep. Tampa Bay has won 4 of their last 6 games. The Yankees just finished a sweep at Yankees Stadium vs the visiting Chicago Cubs. The Bronx Bombers outscored the Cubs by a score of 28-5 in 3 games and are currently on a 11-1 winning streak.
One of the best promotions available is at BetMGM where they are offering a $1,000 risk free first bet when you sign up using the code VIBONUS. The minimum bet is $10. Yankee bettors will have to pay a premium as the current line sits at -225 on the ML. Betting a $100 will net you $44. If you like the Yankees to just win you can head on over to BetMGM and place a wager. If that bet loses BetMGM will refund the first bet into your account up to $1,000. If it wins you keep the initial wager and the $44 won on the bet.
The pitching matchup in this AL East rivalry will feature Gerrit Cole vs. Corey Kluber. Both pitchers coming into this game with similar numbers. Cole just allowed the Twins 8 hits and 5 home runs in just 2.1 innings but has a 3.63 season ERA to go along with a 5-1 record. Kluber owns a 3.88 ERA but has not allowed more than 2 runs in 5 of his last 7 starts. The Rays are 13-5 in their last 18 meeting in New York though.
A bettor might want to really take a gamble and utilize their risk-free bet on a potentially higher payday. The Rays are going to be +180. A $1,000 risk free bet on the Rays would return $1,800. If the Rays lose BetMGM returns the $1,000 into your account. Again, the minimum bet is $10 but you must use the VIBONUS code at sign up.
The over/under sits at 8 with -110 juice. The Rays have gone 5-5 L10 to the over/under while the Yankees are 5-4-1 to the over. The last 5 head-to-head meetings between these two have hit the under 4 times. A $100 better would net $90 on either the over bet or the under bet. All the line utilized in this article were pulled from the BetMGM sports betting mobile app.
BetMGM offers a ton of different ways to place wagers on games including the first 5 innings bet. The first 5 innings see the Rays at +185 but the Yankees still sit at -225. The first 5 innings total is currently 4. A bet on the under is giving out a +100 line while a bet on the over 4 in the first 5 innings is at -125.
If you are in a legal betting state and 21 years of age, head on over to BetMGM and sign up using the VIBONUS code. Any first bet on a single game up to $1,000 is completely risk free.
