Toronto Blue Jays vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction:
Even though the Rays have won the first 2 games, I look for the Blue Jays to take game 3. They need to play better if they wish to climb in their own division.
Toronto has more talent on their team, but Tampa has played better this year. I just feel more confident with the Jays in this one.
Both of these left handers are good pitchers, but I give the edge to Robbie Ray. I look for him to pitch a good game and for the Jays to do enough against Rich Hill.
I like the Blue Jays on the moneyline in this one.
