Tampa Bay Rays Fantasy Spin

Tommy Pham went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer on Saturday in the Rays' victory over the Indians. It's the eighth homer of the season, and it was the third of the day hit off of Carlos Carrasco. Pham has now driven in 24 runs over 48 games, and he's 6-for-9 in his stolen base attempts along with his .290/.398/.473 slash. The Rays probably won this trade.

Cleveland Indians Fantasy Spin

Carlos Santana went 2-for-4 with a double and a homer on Saturday in a loss to the Rays. Santana's homer was a solo blast off of Casey Sadler to make it 6-2 Rays in the eighth inning. The homer is the ninth on the year for the switch-hitter, and the double gives Santana 10. The average has dropped as we expected, but he's still hitting a very respectable .287/.410/.500 over 50 games with the Indians in his second tour with Cleveland.

MLB Betting Trends

Tampa Bay

The Rays are 26-11 in their last 37 road games and are 4-1 in Ryne Stanek’s last five starts.

Cleveland

The Indians have won 10 of their last 13 games against the American League East but are 1-5 in their last six games overall.

Prediction:

The Rays have won six of their last eight games versus the Indians and are 4-1 in their last five games played at Progressive Field. They’re worth a flier today as an underdog, especially against a struggling Trevor Bauer. The starter is winless over his last four outings and is coming off a start in which he surrendered four runs on four hits with four walks in a loss to the A’s. Bauer has now allowed 17 runs across his last 17 frames.

The Pick: Tampa Bay Rays +108
