Cubs Coming Off Series Loss

The Cubs faced off against the Cincinnati Reds in the last game and they lost three of the four games. In the last game though the Cubs were able to secure the 4-2 victory. The Cubs scored only four runs on Sunday but the pitching gave up only two. Shota Imanaga went 6.2 innings giving up five hits and two earned runs.

Why Cubs Will Win

  • The Rays have lost each of their last four games.
  • The Rays have failed to cover the run line in each of their last seven games at Tropicana Field.
  • The road team has covered the run line in each of the Rays' last seven games.
  • The Rays have trailed after 5 innings in each of their last five home games.

Rays Coming Off Another Loss

The Rays are coming off another loss in the last game on Tuesday and they can’t have a whole lot of confidence heading into this game. Ryan Pepoit went six innings giving up nine hits and four runs. The Rays are averaging 3.89 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.85 runs per game. The offense is ranked 26th while the pitching is ranked 25th. This is a team that has been inconsistent all season and at some point it’s going to become full blown panic mode. Isaac Paredes has hit 10 home runs and driven in 37 RBIs so far this season. Getting the start for the Rays will be Zach Eflin who sits with a 3-4 record and an ERA of 4.14. In his last start against the Miami Marlins, he went four innings giving up three hits and two runs. 

Why the Rays Will Win

  • The Cubs have lost each of their last seven road games following a win.
  • The Rays have won each of their last six night games against National League opponents that held a losing record.
  • The Cubs have failed to cover the run line in each of their last 11 games following a win.
  • The Rays have covered the run line in nine of their last 10 night games against National League opponents.
  • The Cubs have trailed after 5 innings in each of their last four games against American League opponents.

Chicago Cubs vs Tampa Bay Rays Prediction

The Rays have struggled at times, but the Cubs haven’t been exactly strong either, and in this game it’s going to be the Rays that are going to get the job done. Tailion in his last start gave up ten hits and five earned runs and he’s going to be blown up in this game. The Rays bats are going to get going early, and that is going to be the difference here. Back the Rays on the money line to cash.
