Tampa Bay Rays vs Atlanta Braves 3/23/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Tampa Bay Rays will meet with the Atlanta Braves in MLB action in CoolToday Park North Port, FL, on Wednesday, March 23, 2022, at 1:05 PM ET.

 

The Tampa Bay Rays were eliminated in the ALDS by the Cinderella tale Boston Red Sox, revealing the team’s dire need for starting pitching.

 

They leaned on their bullpen weapons, such as Drew Rasmussen, Collin McHugh, and Shane McClanahan, to get through the first 3 innings or so, leaving them susceptible in the latter innings owing to their bullpen’s exhaustion. But, let’s face it, their bullpen was a shambles.

 

During the regular season, their “arm barn” placed in the top five in ERA, WHIP, BAA, and strikeouts, and with a few exceptions, most of those bullpen arms will be returning in 2022.

 

Wander Franco, an emerging star on offense, with a .288 batting average and.810 OPS in 70 regular matches, but he burst into the scene in the postseason with a .368 batting average and 1.158 OPS in 19 at-bats.

 

Shane Baz was called up late in the 2021 season to aid the Rays’ starting rotation. He pitched effectively throughout the regular season (2-0 with a 2.03 ERA in 13.1 innings), but underperformed in Game 2 of the ALDS, allowing 6 hits and 3 runs in 2.1 innings.

 

Baz will be a key member of their 2022 rotation, which will include two-time Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber, who was acquired before the MLB lockout began, but not ace Tyler Glasnow, who is likely to spend the full season recuperating from Tommy John surgery.

 

  • The Tampa Bay Rays are 0-5 in their last 5 matches.
  • Tampa Bay is 25-13 in their road matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 3 of the Rays’ previous 5 games.

Tampa Bay Rays vs Atlanta Braves Predictions 3/23/2022

 

The Atlanta Braves defeated the Houston Astros in Game 6 of the 2021 World Series, the last time an important game of Major League Baseball was contested.

 

The Braves won the World Series and enjoyed a parade, but then they had to deal with a 99-day owner-imposed lockout, with no idea how their championship defense would go. We now know.

 

Furthermore, we know the Braves will not be the same. That was always likely to be true to some degree, but the Braves’ decision to go with Matt Olson over Freddie Freeman at first base was one of the most significant offseason moves.

 

The Braves have a strong roster, and their run to the World Series last autumn should serve as a reminder to never say never. Even yet, it’s difficult to predict if they (or any other club) will repeat as winners. Since the NY Yankees won three straight World Series in 1998-2000, MLB did not have a back-to-back champion.

 

  • The Braves are 3-2 in their last 5 matches.
  • Atlanta is 16-15 in their road matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 24 of the Braves’ 40 previous games at home.

Tampa Bay Rays vs Atlanta Braves. The MLB pick for this game is the Tampa Bay Rays. The Rays are a gritty group that usually manages to find a way to capture 80 matches, so if they strengthen their starting pitching, they may be a danger to winning the AL East. However, I believe they are vying for a Wild Card position.

 

In perhaps the strongest division in baseball, I anticipate Tampa Bay to have another season above .500. The Braves aren’t even the favorites in the National League East, according to most projection algorithms, who prefer the New York Mets. The Tampa Bay Rays will win to a predicted score of 3-2.
