The Tampa Bay Rays look like they are emerging as favorites to take down the hyper competitive AL East and they will look to take some games of the last placed team in the divsion this Saturday as they two teams meetup at Camden Park this Saturday.
Tampa Bay Rays
I think a lot of people thought the Rays would be good this year, but few people would have projected for them to look this good and to be the likely winners of the AL East at this point, as they have recently been able to overlap the Red Sox for first in the division.
By far the biggest reason this team is as good as it is, is that they finally have a solid batting lineup behind their pitching and defense and that is certainly a deadly duo that could once again make them dark horses for the World Series.
I have been waiting for this Rays offense to cool down a bit, as there is a gap between their runs scored and their overall batting average, but they just have continued hitting the ball in clutch spots and putting up enough runs to get the job done consistently.
Shane McClanahan is on the mound here and he enters this one with a 5-4 record and a 3.74 ERA, but this game might be as easy as it looks on paper, as the Orioles have been swinging hot bats as of late.
The Orioles have really struggled with pitching this year and if they are able to get that at least somewhat fixed in this offseason I feel like they could be competitive next year and it will be interesting to see what they can do down the stretch.
The batting lineup is what has been getting them there wins, although they are coming into this series off the back of two rough losses against the Yankees so they will be hungry to bounce back here.
Spenser Watkins has been one of those pitchers who has impressed for the Orioles here in 2021, as he enters with an ERA of 3.81 and a record of 2-2, so he may be able to put the Orioles in a position to win this one.
Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. Baltimore Orioles MLB Prediction:
The Orioles seem like live underdogs here, as they do have a decent enough batting lineup and Spenser Watkins has not looked too bad this year and I would not be surprised if he is able to put in a quality start here.
The Orioles also get this one at home and the price just seems off considering this pitching matchup, as +170 just seems like a great price on the home side here and that for me is just great line value.
This could also be a high scoring match, so I do not mind the over as well for a nice in-game parlay, but I do feel like the most value is on the home team here, as I do think they can get the job done here.
