Kansas City Royals vs Tampa Bay Rays Predictions 8/20/2022


It is perfect timing for the Tampa Bay Rays to be getting back to their old selves. The Rays are once again in the middle of the American League playoff battle despite a string of injuries to their regular lineup.


Tampa began the week by defeating the Yankees in two of three games, narrowly missing a clean sweep on Wednesday night kudos to a walk-off grand slam by the Bronx Bombers.


The Tampa Bay Rays are third in the American League East with a record of 63-55. 


The Rays’ prospects of making the playoffs will mostly depend on Drew Rasmussen, who will start on Saturday. Rasmussen owns a 2-1 record and a 1.67 ERA over his last five outings.


Rasmussen had a perfect game through eight innings against the Orioles in his last start on Sunday, but he was only able to earn a 4-1 victory after pitching 8.1 innings and giving up only one hit and one run while striking out seven batters.


  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Tampa Bay’s last 6 matches. 
  • The Tampa Bay Rays are 5-2 SU in their last 7 matches. 
  • The Rays are 4-2 SU in their previous 6 games at home.

Kansas City Royals vs. Tampa Bay Rays. The MLB pick for this match is the Tampa Bay Rays. Tampa Bay crushed Kansas City, winning nine of the last 11 home games against the Royals and 18 of the previous 25 meetings between the two teams.


On July 22 against Kansas City, Tampa Bay’s starting pitcher Drew Rasmussen gave up just one run in five innings.


The Royals lost all four of their most recent games overall and 35 of their last 51 on astroturf. The expected final score is 6-2 in favor of the Kansas City Royals.
