Tampa Bay Rays vs Chicago White Sox Free Pick

The Rays have been enjoying excellent offensive success this year against right-handed pitching and Clevinger has had difficulty on the mound recently. Therefore, it should come as no surprise if they remain effective offensively again in this matchup. With one of baseball’s least effective bullpens in their ranks, the White Sox may find it challenging to keep pace with the Rays in this contest. Their recent loss streak now extends across nine of 10 overall contests and five out of their last six home contests. The Tampa Bay Rays will be winning this game as predicted by the baseball betting experts.
