Baltimore at Tampa Bay

1 unit on Baltimore -103 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 1.97) RESULT: LOSS
The Baltimore Orioles have a dynamite offense behind Adam Jones and second baseman Jonathan Schoop, ninth in runs scored and sixth in slugging. Baltimore is on an 8-3 run, 6-2 against the AL East. Orioles starter Kevin Gausman has put together two straight solid outings, allowing one run and eight hits over 11 innings with a win, and the team is 4-1 when he faces the AL East. He faces a punchless Tampa Bay offense that is 20th in slugging, 18h in on-base percentage, and 28th in runs scored. The Rays have dropped two of three in the series and are on a 5-11 run this month. Rays' righty Jake Odorizzi is off a good performance, but the team is 6-14 following a Quality Start in his last appearance. Tampa Bay is also 4-11 against a right-handed starter, and the Orioles are 4-1 in the last five meetings at Tampa Bay. Play the Orioles.
