Picks & Predictions

moneyline pick: Orioles +110

Baltimore and Tampa Bay have similar percentages based this season, leaving our side with the Orioles at home with a regular starter on the mound. The Rays are likely to use a lot of bullet points Friday night, but Baltimore is the way to go with plus chances.

Playing prop pick: Tyler Wells Under 3.5 strikeouts (-130)

Wells reached 4 strikeouts just twice in seven starts this season. The Rays are slightly below average in strikeouts per game offensively, but they need to make enough contact against Wells, who has not been a strong strikeout pitcher this season.
