Tampa Bay Rays
At this point in time, Tampa Bay has not yet announced a starter.
Tampa Bay has been on fire as of late, winning eight of their last 10 contests. Of course streaks like this are usually backed by either excellent hitting or excellent pitching. In Tampa Bay’s case, they are doing well in both.
In the last week their pitching staff has been solid only giving up four runs per game. They’ve been backed up by some scorching hot bats as their lineup is slashing .348/.396/.619 to go along with 24 extra-base hits and 38 RBI during that span.
Their plate discipline has been so-so – they don’t strike out a ton, ranking 20th overall in strikeouts, while they don’t collect many free passes either ranking 22nd in walks.
Boston Red Sox
Porcello put in another quality start in his last outing against the Toronto Blue Jays. He went seven innings giving up three earned off of three hits while he struck out nine and walked three. The three walks was a season high, while he has yet to give up a home run.
Its been a terrific start for Porcello to say the least. With an 8.82 K/9 and 1.10 BB/9 combined with a 51% GB%, it is going to be hard for teams to collect consecutive hits against him. This has resulted in a very solid 24.4% hard contact rate. That number hasn’t been that low since his Detroit Tiger days.
After a crazy winning streak that they just went through, its only normal for teams to regress and slump some. They’ve gone 2-4 in the last week, while their lineup is only slashing .186/.249/.291 to go along with 15 extra-base hits and 16 RBI.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Red Sox -1.5
Whoever Tampa Bay throws out there, they are going to have to outduel Procello. Boston should be heavy favorites, but I like them to creep out of their funk and give Porcello his fifth win of the season.
