Today’s matchup is between the Tampa Bay Rays (40-20) and the Houston Astros (29-41).

The Rays are starting Tyler Glasnow (RHP), who is 5-1 on the season pitching a 4.08 ERA, 3.66 FIP, .285 wOBA, K% of 38.2%, BB% of 9.2%, 90.4 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.13 WHIP in 57.1 innings pitched.

The Astros are starting Zack Greinke (RHP), who is 1-1 on the season with a 4.03 ERA, 2.80 FIP, .289 wOBA, K% of 24.5%, BB% of 3.3%, 86.8 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.13 WHIP in 67.0 innings pitched.

The Rays are the 4th best in the Majors in Relieving Pitching, while the Astros are 14th.

On the hitting side, the Rays have a .320 wOBA and a .325 OBP. The Astros have a .307 wOBA and a .311 OBP. The Rays have 80 HRs this season while the Astros have 69 HRs.

I like the Rays to win it here. Glasnow should be able to hold off the Astros batting a bit while they try to battle with Zack Greinke. If things get bad on the mound, the Rays can always rely on their bullpen. I'd take them moneyline here.
