Baltimore Orioles vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction:
This is a matchup between 2 teams that are going in totally opposite directions. I am all over the Rays in this one.
The Rays are the better team and they have shown that when facing the Orioles so far this year. I look for that to happen again on Monday.
This has the potential to be a bullpen game depending on how long Yarbrough goes. I look for Tampa to pitch well and to hit around Watkins enough to get a win.
I like the Rays on the run line in this one.
