    5% Play (959) TAMPA BAY -1.5 RUNS  -135


    The pitching match up of Tyler Glasnow vs Wade LeBlanc is a absolute MIsmatch. Glasnow was extremely sharp in his debut going 4 innings and allowing just 1 run while striking out 9. Although he only went 4 innings he did throw 72 pitches so there was no need to have him pitch more and they had a 9-1 lead when he left the game. Today expect him to go deeper before turning the game over to a strong Tampa Bay Bullpen. Baltimore counters with Wade LeBlanc who has been a train wreck for 2 seasons. Last year he was hit hard and he picked right up where he left off in his first start this year allowing 4 runs in 5+ innings of work. He gave up 2 HR’s in his debut. Once this game goes to the bullpens Tampa has an even stronger edge in this match up. Baltimore has been dismal as a home underdog going 82-199 over the last 2+ seasons. Baltimore has been dismal when facing right handers going just 60-151 over the last 2+ years. Yes Baltimore won as a big underdog on Friday Night but they had to use 5 relievers to secure the win as starter Alex Cobb only went 4 innings. Given the fact that they had to use a lot of pitchers the two previous games as well having given up  and 8 runs to the Yankees they may be forced to leave LeBlanc er than they would like. When laying runs you need to have certain things line up. Good starting pitching, a good bullpen and a team that can score runs. Tampa has scored 4 runs or more in 6 of 8 games so far while Baltimore has allowed 4 or more runs in every game but one.  TAKE TAMPA -1.5 Runs as my 5% MLB PITCHER MISMATCH.
