Tampa Bay Rays (@1.8) vs Texas Rangers (@2.0)

Our Prediction:

Tampa Bay Rays will win

Tampa Bay Rays – Texas Rangers Match Prediction | 10-09-2019 20:05

Snell is obviously a quality pitcher, but he's given up 30 hits and 23 earned runs in his last 17.1 innings and that includes 13 runs in his last 3.2 innings. The Rangers can swing the bats and if Snell is going to continue to get too much of the plate, the nightmare could very well continue. Chavez has allowed just two earned runs in his last 20 innings and has a 1.37 ERA and .222 allowed batting average through 26.1 innings on the road.

If this was last year, sure the -200 makes sense. Chavez was really good in his first start of the year, and Tampa has no real homefield advantage. We think the number is way too high. Bookmakers haven't factored in how poor Snell has been in June. Texas is also 38-19 as the underdog. This isn't Blake Snell of 2018. We are on Texas at +180.
