Tonight’s Action

Rays at Angels, 9:38 p.m. ET

Odds: Rays -120, Angels +104 || O/U 7.5

Pick: Tyler Glasnow (3-1, 1.67) will start for Tampa and is scheduled to face fellow righthander Shohei Ohtani (1-0, 3.29) for Los Angeles. 

Glasnow has struck out 10 batters in each of his last two games, and Sports Section likes the veteran to keep rolling. Take the Rays on the moneyline and the under.

Shoutout: On Friday, we asked subscribers to predict the winner of Indians-White Sox, the score, and the player who hit the first home run of the game. Cleveland won 5-3, with the Indians’ Jose Ramirez belting the first dinger.

While no one had Ramirez with the first homer, subscriber Neal Draznin (@Draznnl) was all over the Indians winning 5-3. Nice work, Neal!

Keep the picks coming, everyone!
