Paxton put in a gutsy performance in his last outing as he put in a quality start and picked up his fifth win of the season against the Houston Astros. The lefty went 7.2 innings giving up nine hits for just one earned run while he struck out six and walked one.
On the season Paxton owns an 11.04 K/9, 2.73 BB/9, 0.87 HR/9, 78.9% LOB%, 2.95 ERA and 2.87 FIP. His .271 BABIP is a tad lucky, but even when that regresses I don’t expect that to affect this veteran much.
Seattle continues to play winning baseball going 5-1 in the last week. During that span their lineup is slashing .242/.301/.399 to go with 13 extra-base hits and 26 RBI.
Tampa Bay Rays
Eovaldi was so-so in his second start of the season and was tagged with the loss against the Washington Nationals. He went five innings giving up four hits, four earned runs, and one home run while he struck out four and walked one.
So far in two games Eovaldi has posted a 6.55 K/9, 1.64 BB/9, 0.82 HR/9, 3.27 ERA and 3.38 FIP. Of course this is a very small sample size, but don’t expect that ERA to stay this low for a pitcher who owns a career 4.20 ERA.
Tampa Bay has been struggling recently losing six straight in the last week. During that time their lineup is only slashing .207/.254/.321 to go with 13 extra-base hits and 13 RBI.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick:Rays +1.5 & UNDER 7 Runs
I expect a bounce back performance for Eovaldi who only gave up four hits his last outing, while I expect the usual from Paxton. Seattle has been playing awesome small-ball lately and I like them to prevail in a low scoring contest, but that means I Tampa Bay should keep it close.
