Giants vs. Rays Prediction

I’m on the over in this one. We saw a boatload of runs in a one-sided game on Saturday, but I think we see runs both ways in the series finale Snell wasn’t great in his debut and these Rays know a lot of what Snell’s repertoire looks like from his time with the Rays. On the other side, the Rays bullpen, which was once a strength, has a bloated ERA and has been getting shelled as well this season. Give me the over in this one.
