Tampa Bay Rays vs Baltimore Orioles Prediction

The Tampa Bay Rays have been outplayed in this series, and they haven't looked great overall lately when playing decent teams. The Baltimore Orioles are as trustworthy as any team in the sport, and that's even more of a case at home. Cole Irvin has been incredible this season with an ERA under 3, and he's allowed just 5 earned runs in his last 22.1 innings. The price is more than reasonable. I have to lay the small juice with the Orioles at home as they sweep the Rays.
