The Tampa Bay Rays look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Rays have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 10 games. The Rays have won five of their last eight when scoring more than three runs. Evan Longoria leads Tampa Bay with 156 hits and 71 RBI while Logan Forsythe and Kevin Kiermaier have combined for 107 RBI. The Tampa Bay Rays have lost six of their last nine road games. Matt Moore takes the hill, and he’s 2-4 with a 6.48 ERA and 39 strikeouts this season. Moore is 2-0 with a 2.77 ERA and 17 strikeouts in his career against the Marlins.
The Marlins are 14-30 in their last 44 vs. American League East and 5-0 in Conleys last 5 starts. The Rays are 4-0 in their last 4 vs. National League East and 3-10 in Moores last 13 starts. The Marlins are 3-7 in the last 10 meetings in Tampa Bay and 6-15 in the last 21 meetings overall.
The fish are finishing the season strong and Conley has been rock solid since taking the mound this season. The Rays are just way too inconsistent, especially for decent sized chalk. I'll side with the hot Marlins and the plus money.
