Rays vs Blue Jays Predictions

Sports Chat Place

The crew at Sports Chat Place likes the Rays, citing that Tampa Bay is 6-0 in starter Blake Snell's last six road starts and 20-6 in his last 26 starts overall.

Tony's Picks

Tony Tellez says to take the Rays this afternoon. He points to Snell's early-season success as a factor for his pick. Tellez also mentions that it's Toronto starter Clay Buchholz's first start, meaning he might need to shake off some rust during his outing.

Winners and Whiners

The staff at Winners and Whiners says they can't go against the Rays and Snell. They mention that Tampa has been hot and that Snell has allowed just one earned run in 13 2/3 innings of work over his last two starts. A fun stat they include is that the Jays are 13-38 in their last 51 games versus left-handed starters and 0-5 in their last five games when facing Snell.

It's a clean sweep with all three experts taking the Rays to win the middle game of the three-game series this afternoon.
