Baltimore Orioles vs Tampa Bay Rays 4/8/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Baltimore Orioles will meet with the Tampa Bay Rays in an MLB 2022 regular-season game in Tropicana Field, FL, on Friday, April 8, 2022, at 3:10 PM ET. Last year, Baltimore was 26th in the league in runs scored, averaging 659 throughout the season while hitting .239 as a team.

 

The Orioles hit 195 home runs, which was enough for the 19th best in Major League Baseball. While there aren’t big hopes for this Baltimore team, it isn’t all doom and gloom. The Orioles’ lineup has several interesting batters that should pose a danger to opposing pitchers throughout the season.

 

Cedric Mullins, a center fielder, was a notable player last season, compiling a 30/30 season with an amazing mix of power and speed. Ryan Mountcastle, a 25-year-old hitter, continues to progress and will seek to build on a 33-homer season a year ago, while Trey Mancini gloriously returned from cancer treatment by smashing 20 big flies.

 

As the Orioles look to the future, all eyes will be on top catcher prospect Adley Rutschman, who is expected to make his major league debut in May. This ball club has a lot of exciting days ahead of it.

 

  • The Baltimore Orioles are 1-4 SU in their previous 5 matches.
  • The Orioles are 0-5 SU in their last 5 matches on the road.
  • The total went UNDER in 5 of Baltimore’s last 5 matches played in April.

Baltimore Orioles vs Tampa Bay Rays Predictions 4/8/2022

 

The Rays are a machine in recent seasons, constantly fielding a contender despite consistently placing in the lowest third of the league in salary. In 2022, they’ll try to keep their winning recipe going. Tampa Bay was second in the league in runs produced with 857 while batting .242 as a team last season.

 

The Rays were 6th in the league in home runs with 222. Brandon Lowe, Randy Arozarena, and Wander Franco are expected to be key players in what could be a robust roster once again.

 

The Rays also have a strong pitching staff. In addition to McClanahan, top prospect Shane Baz, who returns from injury in a few weeks, should be entertaining to watch this year. Corey Kluber, a seasoned veteran, should help bring veteran consistency to the middle of the rotation.

 

Last season, the Rays had a 3.67 team ERA with 1,478 strikeouts, which was good for ninth place.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 12 of Tampa Bay’s previous 18 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 9 of Tampa Bay’s last 12 matches against Baltimore.
  • The Rays are 5-1 SU in their last 6 matches at home.

Baltimore Orioles vs Tampa Bay Rays. The MLB pick for this game is the Tampa Bay Rays. There are no current data patterns or streaks to refer to because the slate is wiped clean each opening day. Last year, though, a 162-game sample size proved the Rays to be a far stronger team, finishing 48 games ahead in the standings.

 

The Rays were 18-1 overall and 9-1 at Tropicana Field in their head-to-head matchups. While the rosters are rearranged, there is no indication that the Orioles will be able to compete with Tampa Bay this season.

 

Expect McClanahan to fool the Baltimore hitters, and the Tampa offense to produce enough against Means to secure a comfortable first-day victory. The Tampa Bay Rays will win to a predicted score of 7-5
