Tampa Bay Rays Fantasy Spin

Austin Meadows tallied his first career multi-homer game on Friday, powering the Rays to an 11-7 victory over the Blue Jays in Toronto. Meadows crushed a Trent Thornton offering for a leadoff home run to begin the ballgame. His next trip to the dish, he pulverized a ball into the 500 level in right field at Rogers Centre. Teammate Brandon Lowe also went into the fifth deck -- in the same inning no less -- becoming the first teammates to ever reach that level in the same ballgame. Meadows also doubled and walked in the ballgame, finishing the night 3-for-5. He's off to an outstanding start to the season, slashing .367/.446/.796 with six homers, 15 RBI and a pair of stolen bases.

Toronto Blue Fantasy Spin

Luke Maile clubbed a two-run home run as the Blue Jays fell to the Rays on Friday night in Toronto. Maile crushed his two-run homer off of Yonny Chirinos to cap off a six-run seventh inning that turned an 8-0 deficit into an 8-6 ballgame. He also singled in the game, finishing the night 2-for-4. He's off to a nice start at the dish in his limited action, hitting .286/.333/.571 in his first 14 at-bats.

MLB Betting Trends

Tampa Bay

The Rays are 20-6 in Blake Snell’s last 26 starts and are a perfect 6-0 in his last six road outings.

Toronto

The Blue Jays are 0-5 against the Rays when Snell starts and are 0-4 when facing Tampa Bay when Snell toes the rubber in Toronto.

Prediction:

I’m a little apprehensive to take the under given how hot the Rays’ bats are but I also don’t believe the Blue Jays will contribute enough offense to help move the score over the total. Snell is elite, striking bout 24 batters of his past two starts. The Blue Jays are one of the more strikeout-prone offenses in the league so I don’t expect the ball to be put in play much from Toronto’s standpoint. The under is 18-7-2 in Snell’s last 27 road starts and is 20-7-2 in his last 29 outings overall.

The Pick: Rays/Blue Jays UNDER 8
