Tampa Bay is 6-1 in their last 7 road games and 4-1 in their last 5 Tuesday games. The under is 3-1-1 in Tampa Bay’s last 5 game two’s of a series. Baltimore is 6-2 in their last 8 home games and 4-1 in their last 5 Tuesday games. The over is 5-1 in Baltimore’s last 6 Tuesday games. Tampa Bay is 37-15 in these two teams last 52 head to head meetings.


Tampa Bay continues to roll this season and they were able to shutout Baltimore in Game 1. The Rays have been nearly unstoppable this season, but Baltimore has the hitting that could potentially give them trouble. Tampa Bay is starting Zach Eflin, who has allowed two earned runs or fewer in four of his last five starts. Baltimore is starting Grayson Rodriguez, who has allowed at least four earned runs in three of his last five starts. I like the Rays to win this game by at least two runs.
