Tampa Bay Rays vs Houston Astros. MLB’s pick to win the next game is the Tampa Bay Rays. This might just have been a slight hiccup by the Rays but they will bounce back strong in game 5. Their bullpen is really giving the Astros a difficult time where they haven’t allowed more than 4 runs in 4 games. It was also mentioned by Houston’s manager that Framber Valdez and Lance McCullers won’t be starting for the next game which gives Tampa Bay the advantage in the pitching game in game 5. The Astros still have their backs against the wall right now with the Rays most likely ending the series predicted to a score of 5-3
