Free Los Angeles Angels vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction:
The Angels have been up and down this season but they come into this one losers of 3 straight to fall back under the .500 mark on the season. The Angels have a collective 4.86 team ERA from their rotation with 3 of their 6 starters posting an ERA higher than 5.
Tampa Bay rolls in with momentum after snapping their losing streak and I expect that to show here.
Take the Rays to grab game 1.
