Tampa Bay Rays
I don’t see Tampa as all that good a team but they might make the playoffs while nobody is noticing.
They are second in the Majors in homers thanks to career years from the likes of Logan Morrison and Corey Dickerson.
I like Chris Archer a lot but it seems that somebody who can be so good and has his level of experience should be more consistent.
His K numbers are awesome and his overall numbers pretty good but he has some very average starts and the TB offense is all or nothing. He doesn’t win like other elite hurlers.
No team is running away with the NL Central, yet, but the Bucs are closer to the bottom than the top. The pitching might have some upside but that lineup is really tough to respect.
Homers are on the rise across MLB but these guys can’t hit them.
Jameson Taillon is a big part of the Bucs future and they have to be excited with what they see. He may have missed 5 weeks of action in May and June but since coming back has been pretty good.
The ceiling is high for the big righty who is really good at keeping the ball in the yard.

Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. Pittsburgh Pirates MLB Prediction:
Essentially even odds pushes me towards Tampa though being in the NL will mean they will be missing a bat from their lineup. Archer may not win as much as I want but he is good enough to beat anyone.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Tampa Bay -106
Archer might be only 6-4 but the Rays are 10-6 when he pitches. There is a lot to like against this lineup of very light hitters. If he is on this a lineup he can dominate for sure.
