Baltimore is 0-4 in their last 4 Sunday games and 1-5 in their last 6 game three’s of a series. The under is 5-2-1 in Baltimore’s last 8 Sunday games. Tampa Bay is 2-4 in their last 6 games and 2-5 in their last 7 games against a team with a winning record. The over is 4-1 in Tampa Bay’s last 5 game three’s of a series. Baltimore is 21-49 in these two teams last 70 head to head meetings.

Only a half game separates these two teams in the standings in the AL East, making this game critical for both teams to win. Baltimore is starting Jordan Lyles, who has allowed four runs in his last 17 innings of work. For Tampa Bay, Drew Rasmussen has allowed two earned runs or fewer in four consecutive starts. I like Tampa Bay to win this game by a couple of runs behind a strong outing from Rasmussen.
