The Tampa Bay Rays are back to having issues stringing runs together, and now they go up against Grayson Rodriguez, who has been tough to pick up all season. Zack Littell has been sharp in his own right, but the Orioles have been able to produce offense consistently all season long. The Orioles are actually first in the league in runs scored per game. The Orioles are the more trustworthy team overall and have the pitching edge in this matchup. The price is reasonable. Give me the O’s on the road.
