The Line: Tampa Bay Rays -156 / Chicago White Sox +135 -- Over/Under: 8
The Tampa Bay Rays and Chicago White Sox meet Wednesday in MLB action at Guaranteed Rate Field.
The Tampa Bay Rays look to stay hot after winning nine of their last 11 games. The Rays have allowed six runs in their last three games and two or less runs in nine of their last 11 games. The Tampa Bay Rays are 9-2 this season when allowing five or less runs. Offensively, Yandy Diaz leads the Rays with 12 hits and four RBI while Tommy Pham and Austin Meadows have combined for 24 hits and 13 RBI. Tyler Glasnow gets the ball, and he is 2-0 with a 0.82 ERA and 10 strikeouts this season. This will be Glasnow’s second career game against the White Sox.
The Chicago White Sox could use a win here to snap a four-game losing streak. The White Sox have allowed 27 runs in their last three games and five or more runs in eight of their first 10 games. The Chicago White Sox have lost seven of their last eight games when allowing five or more runs. Offensively, Tim Anderson leads the White Sox with 17 hits and six RBI while Yoan Moncada and Leury Garcia have combined for 26 hits and 14 RBI. Reynaldo Lopez gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 10.00 ERA and seven strikeouts this season. This will be Lopez’s second career game against the Rays.
The Rays are 36-17 in their last 53 during game 3 of a series, 9-3 in their last 12 Wednesday games and 2-5 in Glasnow's last 7 road starts. The White Sox are 1-4 in their last 5 during game 3 of a series, 3-12 in their last 15 home games and 7-3 in Lopez's last 10 starts. The Rays are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings and the under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The over is 4-1-1 in White Sox last 6 home games. The under is 8-2-2 in Glasnow's last 12 starts overall.
The Tampa Bay Rays are a team you shouldn't be trying to step in front of right now, as they have everything going for them and have a pitching staff that's been the hottest in the league. Glasnow is one of many pitchers who has been lights out up to this point, allowing just nine hits and one run in 11 innings while striking out 10 batters. I'm not stepping in front of this hot streak and I advise you not to either.
