The Kansas City Royals will host the Toronto Blue Jays for their series finale this Thursday from Guaranteed Rate Field. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Tampa Bay Rays vs Chicago White Sox Prediction.

Tampa Bay Rays Preview

Tampa Bay comes in at 13-13 after defeating Detroit, 7-5. The Rays snapped a three-game skid with the series final victory over the Tigers, and they’ll seek different results in the Southside this weekend. Tampa is batting .248, while scoring 5.0 runs per game, with a team ERA of 5.13.

Tampa’s Player Props

  • Amed Rosario has recorded two or more total bases in each of his last five appearances after not playing the previous day.
  • Randy Arozarena has recorded at least one hit in each of the Rays' last nine night games against AL Central opponents that held a losing record.
  • Josh Lowe has scored at least one run in seven of his last eight appearances against AL opponents.
  • Harold Ramirez has recorded at least one Single in each of his last seven appearances with the Rays as road favorites against AL Central opponents.

Chicago White Sox Preview

Chicago enters at 3-22 after losing to Minnesota, 6-3. Another day, another loss for the White Sox, and it’s unclear if the tide will turn this weekend versus Tampa. Chicago is batting .192, while scoring 2.14 runs per game, with a team ERA of 5.26.

Chicago’s Player Props

  • Eloy Jimenez has scored at least one run in four of the White Sox's last five games against AL East opponents.
  • Andrew Vaughn has recorded at least one hit in each of his last eight home appearances against the Rays after playing the previous day.
  • Nicky Lopez has recorded at least one Single in seven of his last eight appearances.

Tampa’s Team Facts 

  • The 'Inning 1 OVER 0.5 runs' market has hit in each of the Rays' last three games as road favorites.

Chicago’s Team Facts

  • The White Sox have trailed after 7 innings in each of their last five Friday home games.
  • The White Sox have led after 3 innings in three of their last four games as home underdogs against AL East opponents.

Tampa Bay Rays vs Chicago White Sox Prediction 

I’m not sure what the goal is in the Southside this season, but it’s apparent they won’t be winning many games, and should be targeted this weekend. Tampa’s struggling a bit themselves, but they should use this matchup to get back on track, and I’m comfortable going at Chicago here. Each time they play, they should be hunted, so let’s back Tampa this Friday night.
