Rays Betting Preview

Tampa Bay comes in at 23-5 after defeating Chicago. The Rays continue to dominate Chicago, and they can make it seven straight here. The Tampa offense is scoring 6.52 runs per game, while batting .286, with a .358 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 2.79 ERA, with a 1.08 WHIP. Josh Lowe leads the Rays in batting (.348) after recording three hits in yesterday’s win. Randy Arozarena is first on the team in RBI (24).

Drew Rasmussen (3-2, 3.33 ERA, 31 Ks) will get the ball for Tampa. The third-year pitcher had a tough time in his last start versus Houston. Rasmussen allowed nine hits and five runs in just 4.2 innings of work, and he suffered the losing decision.

White Sox Betting Preview

Chicago enters at 7-21 after losing to Tampa Bay. The White Sox have now dropped ten straight games, and it looks like things may get worse before they improve. The Chicago offense is 4.72 scoring runs per game, while batting .235, with a .296 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 5.44 ERA, with a 1.56 WHIP. Andrew Benintendi has recorded multiple hits in four of the last seven games, and he leads the White Sox in hitting (.284), after recording a hit in nine of the last ten games. Andrew Vaughn hit his second homer of the season last night, and he’s first on the team in RBI (17). 

Mike Clevinger (2-1, 3.26 ERA, 28 Ks) will make the start for Chicago. The eighth-year righty pitched well in his first three starts, but he struggled last week in Toronto. Clevinger gave up six earned runs in just five innings of work, and suffered a second straight losing decision. 

Tampa Bay vs Chicago Trends

Tampa Bay is 18-9 against the spread this season, with a 13-11-2 O/U record. Chicago is 11-16 ATS this year, with a 12-12-1 over/under record.

Corey's Free Pick

Things just keep getting worse in the Southside, and the Rays have a chance to defeat the White Sox for a seventh straight time in a two-week span. Chicago’s free fall should be addressed by their front office, and with this losing streak having the momentum to roll into the new work week, I don’t think they stop the freight train that Tampa Bay has become. There’s still time for improvement, but right now, roll with the Rays Sunday.
