Tampa Bay Rays vs. Atlanta Braves Prediction

The Rays roll into this contest with a record of 33-36.

The season has been up and down so far for Tampa.

The Rays have struggled to score runs while their pitching has not been as strong as it has in years past.

Tampa trials the first-place Yankees by 15 games.

This Rays team will have to figure things out sooner rather than later if they want to make any noise in the AL.

Isaac Paredes leads the team, hitting .286 with ten home runs and 38 runs batted in.

Former all-star Yandy Diaz leads the Rays with 70 hits on the year.

Randy Arozarena has struggled this year, hitting .171.

Zack Littell will start today. The veteran is 2-4 with a 3.63 ERA.

Atlanta starts play with a record of 36-30.

Despite being six games over .500, the Braves trail the Phillies in first place by nine games in the NL East.

The Braves have enough talent to win a world championship.

Injuries have not been kind to the Braves this year as they are without their ace, Spencer Strider and best player, Ronald Acuna Jr. for the year.

Atlanta is 4-6 over their last ten games.

Marcel Ozuna has enjoyed a career year leading the team with a .322 batting average, launching 18 home runs and driving in 57 runs.

Matt Olson has hit ten home runs while knocking in 37 runs.

Ozzie Albies has added 63 hits, ranking second on the team.

Southpaw Chris Sale will toe the rubber. Sale is 8-2 with a 3.01 ERA.

Tampa Bay Rays vs. Atlanta Braves Betting Pick

I love this spot for the Braves at home tonight.

Atlanta matches up well and Littell and will have a strong offensive night.

Sale has been dominant at home this year with a record of 7-0.

Let’s cash in tonight!
