Detroit Tigers vs Tampa Bay Rays 5/16/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Detroit Tigers will go against the Tampa Bay Rays in MLB action in Tropicana Field, FL, on Monday, May 16, 2022, at 6:40 PM ET.

 

The Detroit Tigers did not have the best start to the 2022 regular season, but they still have lots of time to turn things around. In the AL Central, they are presently in last place.

 

The Tigers are averaging 3.79 runs per game and hitting.220 as a club on offense. This club has the 30th lowest run total per game and the 26th lowest team batting average. They’re having trouble making contact with the ball, and they’re not producing enough base runners to put the opposition defense under strain.

 

The Tigers also discovered that their lineup has very little power in the form of home runs. They are managing only .46 home runs per game, which is the league’s lowest average. Once they made it to first base safely, I anticipate the Tigers to be cautious.

 

This season, Detroit only stole four bases, putting them dead bottom in the MLB. They should strive to get their runners into scoring position as soon as possible because they aren’t creating many hitting chances with men in scoring position.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 10 of Detroit’s last 12 matches.
  • The Detroit Tigers are 6-14 SU in their last 20 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 5 of Detroit’s last 5 matches on the road.

Detroit Tigers vs Tampa Bay Rays Predictions 5/16/2022

 

The Tampa Bay Rays had a strong start to the 2022 regular season, and they hope to build on that success. They are presently second in the American League East. They are averaging 4.21 runs per game and hitting .235 as a team on offense.

 

This club has the 15th greatest per-game run total and the 16th highest team batting average. They are excellent at making contact with the ball and even better at hitting with runners on base.

 

The Rays also recognized that they have some big power strewn across their lineup. They are hitting .94 home runs per game, which is the league’s 16th highest average.

 

At any point throughout the game, Tampa Bay possesses many batters that can knock the ball out of the park. They are one of the league’s more aggressive base-running teams. They already have 28 bases, which is tied for second-most in the league.

 

Early in these innings, they try all they can to get their runners into scoring positions. This one is worth watching for Brandon Lowe at the plate. He proved that one at-bat can impact the game, and I anticipate him to continue to be aggressive at the plate.

 

  • The Tampa Bay Rays are 9-4 SU in their last 13 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 8 of Tampa Bay’s last 12 matches at home.
  • The total went UNDER in 7 of Tampa Bay’s last 9 matches at home against Detroit.

Detroit Tigers vs Tampa Bay Rays. The MLB pick for this game is the Tampa Bay Rays. In this encounter, I’ll be riding with the home team.

 

The Tampa Bay Rays presently rank 15th in terms of runs scored per game and 16th in terms of team batting average. I don’t think Alex Faedo has what it takes to go deep in this game, and I don’t think the Rays will be able to score enough runs to cover the run line (-1.5).

 

The Tigers are also one of the league’s weakest offensive clubs. They have the lowest team batting average in the league and score the fewest runs each game. The Tigers battled to make contact and get on base all season, and this game will be no different.

 

In the first game of this series, Corey Kluber will turn his year around and demolish the Tigers. Tampa Bay is the superior team overall, and I prefer them at home. The Tampa Bay Rays will win to a predicted score of 5-2.
