Tampa Bay Rays vs. Cleveland Indians

MLB: Saturday, May 25, 2019 at 4:10 PM EST

After losing two in a row the Rays bounced back to recently win two straight. In the two losses, they gave up 20 runs while in the next two wins they only gave up three runs. Tampa Bay has been all about their pitching staff on the season, as they rank first in MLB in team ERA while not ranking in the top 20 in the Majors in runs scored. However, in their recent two wins they totaled 15 runs and they scored seven in taking the first game of this series where they hit three HR in the first two innings.

The Indians have hit the skids recently losing four in a row and in the last two losses in that span they only scored two runs in each game. The lineup has been the main issue for the team on the season that sits in 2nd place in the AL Central still several games back of the Minnesota Twins. The pitching has been the reason the Tribe are not under .500 and they could use a solid start from Carlos Carrasco in this Saturday afternoon affair.

Morton looks to stay perfect

Charlie Morton (4-0 2.65 ERA) gets the nod in this game and has had a good season so far looking to keep a perfect record, but was roughed up in his last start. In his last outing, he gave up five runs, including giving up two HR, in only four innings taking a no decision in a 13-5 loss to the New York Yankees. Morton had not given up more than two runs in any of his previous four starts and in that span, he only gave up three runs in 23 2/3 innings of work. This is Morton’s first start of the season facing the Indians.

Avisail Garcia is swinging a hot bat, as in a recent three-game stretch he had four RBI and he went deep in the first game of this series. Tampa Bay has a better road record than home record this season and they have the 2nd most road wins in MLB.

Carrasco’s streak ends

Carlos Carrasco (4-4 4.30 ERA) goes in this game and he had not given up any runs in two straight starts, but that streak ended in his last start. In that start, he gave up three runs on seven hits in five innings in a 6-4 loss to the Oakland A’s. The Indians had won his previous three starts and in the two starts before his last one he pitched 12 scoreless innings not walking a single batter and gave up eight hits. This month Carrasco has gone 24 2/3 innings giving up seven runs and striking out 25 while only walking two.

Carlos Santana leads the Tribe in batting average, HR, and RBI and of the four players on the club that have played at least 44 games he is the only one batting above .223. Jose Ramirez leads the team in at bats, but has moved out of the leadoff spot since he is hitting below .200.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Have to go with the hotter team in this one in the Rays, as their offense has come alive as of late and they have gotten solid pitching in recently winning two in a row. The Indians have recently lost four in a row and all of those losses were at home. Morton was roughed up in his last outing, but will have a decent start in this one and get help from the lineup that will get to Carrasco. Tampa Bay will stay hot with a win in this game to keep pace with the Yankees in the AL East.

Prediction: PICK: Rays

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

While the Rays have not been great at the dish this season they have been pretty good there as of late. I do not see a pitcher’s duel in this one and while most of the betting trends point to the Under I will buck those trends. This AL matchup will go Over and that is the winning pick.

Prediction: PICK: Over

Jason Green

I dig every sport and the NFL is my favorite. My team is the Redskins and my 2nd favorite is whoever is playing the Cowboys! I am a great handicapper and if you don’t believe me just ask. I don’t just write about betting on games I actually bet on them and I have done well, which is why it is a good idea to follow my picks.
