MLB Baseball Gambling Total:
The Baltimore Orioles will look to cause yet another upset in the AL East when they head down to St. Petersburg Florida to take on the Tampa Bay Rays who are hot on the heels of the Boston Red Sox in the division.
The Baltimore Orioles managed to pick up back to back wins in their last two games against the Kansas City Royals, so they should be carrying some momentum from that series into this one with the Rays.
This Orioles batting lineup has no depth whatsoever, but they do have a few guys at the top of the order who have been getting it done, as Trey Mancini and Cedric Mullins are both having excellent season and we will see if they are still with the team after the trade deadline.
John Means is the projected starter here and enters with excellent stats with a 2.28 ERA and his numbers are just as good in the individual matchup, as he has been able to hold the Rays under .200 in terms of average over his entire career against them.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Tampa Bay Rays are clearly big time contenders this year and are proving with every passing win that last year’s run to the World Series was not simply a fluke and that this team is here to stay.
The Rays have been just as hot as of late too picking up 8 wins from their last 10 games and they are getting it done in typical Rays fashion with a mix of excellent pitching and strong defense with the only difference being that their batting lineup is not all that bad ranking in 7th in overall runs scored.
Shane McClanahan will be on the mound this Tuesday and he is yet another one of the Rays solid pitchers coming in here with a 3-3 record and a 4.05 ERA and he is in a nice spot here to further improve upon those stats.

Free Baltimore Orioles vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction:
The Baltimore Orioles are a nice story here, mainly because of Trey Mancini, but this is an awfully tough spot even with one of their better pitchers on the mound, as the Rays have seemingly put it all together in terms of batting and pitching.
The Tampa Bay Rays offense is likely in for some negative regression, but I do not think that starts here against the Baltimore Orioles and this is one of those series where I feel the Rays will find a way to win like they have all season long.
