Tampa Bay Rays
Snell continued his break-out season after putting in another quality start and picked up his 12th win of the season in a 3-0 victory over the New York Mets. He went 7.1 scoreless-innings giving up just six hits while he struck out nine and walked three.
The All-star who was snubbed has posted solid numbers as he owns a 10.24 K/9, 3.41 BB/9, 0.93 HR/9 and an 88.2% LOB% in 116.0 innings of work. He owns a sparkling 2.09 ERA, but we should see that regress some once his .234 BABIP fall towards the mean, which could be around his 3.36 FIP.
Tampa Bay has played winning baseball in the past week as they’ve won four of their six contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .248/.350/.426 to go with 22 extra-base hits and 28 RBI.
Gibson was solid in his last outing as he put in a quality start and picked up his third win of the season in a 5-4 victory over the Baltimore Orioles. He went seven innings giving up four hits, three earned runs and one home run while he struck out nine and walked four.
In 107.2 innings of work, the righty owns a decent strikeout (8.78 K/9) to walk (3.85 BB/9) rate, while he’s also done a decent job stranding base runners (77.1% LOB%) and limiting the long ball (1.00 HR/9). The end-result is an okay 3.59 ERA and a slightly higher 3.99 FIP.
Minnesota has been playing winning baseball in the past week as they’ve won five of their seven contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .275/.321/.441 to go with 22 extra-base hits and 31 RBI.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Twins UNDER Team Total
I don’t like how Tampa Bay is small favorites, while Gibson has been playing well and Minnesota has been playing winning baseball in the past week so I’m stay away from choosing a money line, but I will predict that Snell puts in another Gem after being snubbed in All-Star voting.
