Prediction

The Arizona Diamondbacks have their ace, Zac Gallen, on the mound, and his dominating presence is likely to keep the Rays’ offense in check. On the other hand, Taj Bradley, though respectable, will face an uphill battle against a strong Diamondbacks lineup at Chase Field.

With the additional home ground advantage and the scorching heat in Phoenix, which the Diamondbacks are more accustomed to, all signs point to the Diamondbacks taking the series opener. The Money Line at ARI -125 is a reflection of their favorable position.

Given these factors, our prediction for this game is a victory for the Arizona Diamondbacks.
