Money line

BETRAYS (-135).

Run line/Against the spread

PASS.

The Rays -1.5 (+120) don't offer a big enough payout considering they are just 5-5 RL as road favorites, while the Orioles are 13-5 RL as home underdogs.

Over/Under

PASS with a "lean" to the Under 8.5 (- 125) because Baltimore's lineup should struggle vs. Springs and the Under is 5-2-1 in the last 8 head-to-head meetings.

However, the Over has cashed in 8 of their last 10 meetings in Baltimore, the Rays are 3-0-1 O/U in their last 4 as road favorites and the Orioles are 5-1 O/U in their last 6 games as home underdogs.
