The Tampa Bay Rays, the team with the best record in baseball, play two games against the Kansas City Royals, the worst team in the American League, on Wednesday.

With the second game of the doubleheader featuring last year's Cy Young Award winner, Blake Snell, starting for the Rays, they are -225 moneyline favorites to win the nightcap, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

As it's always smart to hear what those in the industry have to say before placing a bet, here are some expert predictions for Wednesday night's game.

Royals vs Rays Predictions

Sports Chat Place

Sports Chat Place likes the Rays to win the second game of the doubleheader on Wednesday night. They say that the Royals have the worst record in the AL for a reason and with Snell on the mound that the Rays are by far the better team.

Scores & Stats

Scores & Stats also believes the Rays will handle business against Kansas City in Game 2 with a projected final score of 6-2. The Rays are hot and have Snell on the mound – that's all Tampa Bay needs to beat Kansas City, according to Scores & Stats.

Bang the Book

Bang the Book makes it a clean sweep here as they also have the Rays winning the night game of the double dip. The Rays have been great this year against right-handed pitching, while the Royals have struggled against lefties like Blake Snell.

That's all three experts picking the Rays to win Game 2 of the doubleheader behind last year's Cy Young Award winner.
