Introduction:

The Tampa Bay Rays and Chicago White Sox are set to face off in a four-game series starting on April 27, 2023. This game promises to be an exciting matchup between two of the best pitchers in the American League. The Rays have been dominant so far this season with a record of 20-5, while the White Sox have struggled with a record of 7-18. As the game approaches, many MLB experts are offering their predictions and MLB picks for today's game. In this article, we will provide a comprehensive review of both teams' pitching, hitting, and injuries to determine which team is more likely to win, and why the under of 7 runs is the best bet.

 

Pitching:

The Tampa Bay Rays will be sending out Shane McClanahan as their starting pitcher. McClanahan has been dominant this season, with a record of 4-0, an ERA of 1.86, and a WHIP of 1.03. He has also recorded 37 strikeouts in just 29 innings pitched. McClanahan's fastball has been particularly impressive, with an average velocity of 97.8 mph, making him one of the fastest pitchers in the league. The White Sox will be starting Dylan Cease, who has a record of 2-0, an ERA of 2.73, and a WHIP of 1.18. Cease has also recorded 34 strikeouts in 26.1 innings pitched. While both pitchers have been performing well, McClanahan's impressive fastball and overall performance this season give him the edge in this matchup.

 

Hitting:

The Rays' batting lineup has been dominant this season, with several players recording impressive stats. Yandy Diaz leads the team with six home runs and 15 RBIs, while Randy Arozarena has a batting average of .341 and 24 RBIs. The White Sox, on the other hand, have struggled with their hitting this season, with a team batting average of just .228. Luis Robert Jr. leads the team with five home runs and 13 RBIs. While the White Sox have some talented hitters, their overall performance this season has been lackluster compared to the Rays' lineup.

 

Injuries:

The Rays will be without Jeffrey Springs, who is on the 60-day injured list, and Johan Lopez, who is suspended. The White Sox have no injured players, giving them an advantage in terms of their available roster.

 

Prediction:

Based on their dominant pitching, strong hitting, and overall record this season, the Tampa Bay Rays are expected to win this game against the Chicago White Sox. However, the under of 7 runs is the best bet for this matchup. Both McClanahan and Cease have been performing well this season, and with the White Sox struggling with their hitting, it's unlikely they will score many runs against the Rays' dominant pitching. Additionally, with the game taking place in Chicago where temperatures can be cooler, the ball may not travel as far, making it less likely for home runs to be scored. With this in mind, betting on the under of 7 runs is a smart choice for those looking to bet on this game.
