Thursday evening will be the first matchup in this four game series.
Not only are The Orioles only two games behind the Boston Red Sox for first place in the American League East, they are also tied for best record of American League teams fighting for a Wild Card spot.
Yovani Gallardo will be starting on the mound for the Orioles while the Rays will be sending Blake Snell to the mound.
Both pitchers are bringing an ERA over 4.5 from their previous seven starts so both clubs will have a chance to light up the field from the batter’s box.
The Baltimore Orioles are in predicament that a lot of other teams wish they were in. No, they do not have to win every game in order to keep their postseason goals alive.
But if they do continue to win, they have an opportunity to win their division instead on entering the postseason as a Wild Card team.
Baltimore still has four games this season against the AL East leading Boston Red Sox and every other game the Orioles can win against the rest of the Majors will just make the journey that much easier.
The Orioles have managed to win 6 of their last ten games, scoring 53 runs in the process.
Yovani Gallardo will start on the mound for the Orioles Thursday night and while he has faced the Rays 3 times already this season, he has only been given one decision which was a win on September 6.
He has gone 2-4 throughout his last seven games with an ERA of 4.95.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Tampa Bay Rays will not be playing in the postseason this year, but this is still a divisional game with some meaning.
The Rays are 4-11 against Baltimore this season and while this is just one game, putting the Orioles further behind the Red Sox for the division lead would even the score just a little.
Tampa Bay has definitely seen better stretches from the batter’s box after only knocking in 37 runs during their last ten games.
The Rays will send Blake Snell out to pitch who has been in a funk of his own his last couple times out. Snell has only made it out of the third inning in one of his last three starts and has given up 17 hits throughout his last 8 innings.
This will be his first matchup against the Orioles this season.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- The Orioles are 6-4 during their last 10 games.

Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. Baltimore Orioles MLB Prediction:
Neither pitcher in this match up is exactly a threat.
Both teams will have an opportunity to put some points on the board and drive up the score. Snell needs to be able to give the Rays six solid innings in order to give the team a chance, something he hasn’t been able to do as of late.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Baltimore ML and game total over 9.5
The Orioles have dominated the Rays in 2016 and I really don’t see that changing Thursday night in Baltimore.
The O’s have been productive with the wood and although Gallardo hasn’t exactly been strong in his last seven starts, pitching against the Rays will give him a chance to get back on track.
