The model, which simulated every game on Tuesday’s MLB schedule 10,000 times, is high on the Rays (-125) beating the Angels. Tampa Bay (18-12) lost the first game of the series on Monday night, 11-3. Meanwhile, Los Angeles (20-11) has won five of its last six and leads the AL West.
However. Tampa Bay enters Tuesday’s matchup with the clear pitching edge. Two-time Cy Young winner Corey Kluber (1-1, 2.36 ERA) takes the mound for the Rays. Over his last two starts, Kluber has given up just one run on four hits while striking out 13 in 12 innings. He squares off against Reid Detmers (1-1, 5.32), who gave up three runs in 4 2/3 innings to the Red Sox in his last start.
The model projects that the Rays beat the Angels in well over 60 percent of simulations, making Tampa Bay a strong value for Tuesday MLB bets.
