Tampa Bay Rays Fantasy Spin

Brandon Lowe went 2-for-4 with two runs scored against the Royals on Wednesday. Both of his hits were singles. Joey Wendle suffered a fractured right wrist when he was hit by a pitch on Wednesday, so there shouldn’t be any question about Lowe’s playing time moving forward. Not that there should be, anyway. Lowe is batting .291 with six homers and a .929 OPS over 24 games.

Boston Red Sox Fantasy Spin

Rafael Devers went 2-for-4 and drove in a pair of runs in Thursday's win over the Tigers. He cracked a double to left that plated Xander Bogaerts and Mitch Moreland with the go-ahead runs in the third inning. Devers has gotten off to a rather quiet start this year but it's only a matter of time before he starts showing some thump. The 22-year-old third baseman is slashing .276/.370/.345 with zero homers and seven RBI through 26 games.

MLB Betting Trends

Tampa Bay

The over is 4-1 in the Rays’ last five road games and is 4-1 in their last five divisional games as well.


The over is 5-2 in the Red Sox’ last seven games overall and is 15-6-2 in their last 23 home games.


On paper, this should be a pretty good pitcher’s matchup. That said, Morton is 3-1 against the Red Sox but that is accompanied by a 5.06 ERA. Price, meanwhile, has dominated his former team in the past, posting a 2.20 ERA over five starts. That said, this Rays offense is potent, especially Tommy Pham, who is 12-for-27 over his last seven games. This game has sneaky high-scoring potential.

The Pick: Rays/Red Sox OVER 8.5
