BIG AL's MLB DIVISION S*M*A*S*H (54-26 RUN)!
Tampa Bay Rays (4-3) at Baltimore Orioles (2-3)
Saturday, August 01, 2020 at 7:35 pm
At 7:35 pm, our selection is on the Tampa Bay Rays over the Baltimore Orioles. The O's are probably happy to see the Rays come to town after having to face the Yankees after the Marlins had a number of players test positive for COVID. Somehow Baltimore -- which resembles a AAA team at this point -- managed to win Game 1 of this series last night here at home. But things could get a lot tougher for the O's tonight with RHP Tyler Glasnow getting his second start of the season for the Rays. Tampa was cautious with Glasnow earlier this week, as he only stayed in for four innings in his first start of 2020. But as far as four-inning starts go, that one last Monday was about as dominant as it gets. The 26-year-old allowed one hit while striking out nine Braves hitters in a 14-5 Rays rout. Facing the O's lineup after one that includes Ronald Acuna, Freddie Freeman, and Ozzie Albies is a dream come true for Glasnow in his second start of the season. The O's are 9-43 (-23 games on the money line) in their last 52 games as a home dog of +175 or more. Take Tampa. As always, good luck...Al McMordie
