Preview

Tampa Bay Rays at Miami Marlins game preview

The Sunshine State rivalry and Citrus Series starts right away, as the Tampa Bay Rays face the Miami Marlins in what is the first game of the 2021 MLB season.

It’s only right to start a 162-game season on a high note, but only one Florida team can do so. The Tampa Bay Rays are favored, as they’re fresh off a World Series trip and Glasnow is a talented pitcher with some of the better stuff in the league. However, the Miami Marlins cashed a lot of tickets in the underdog role last season and are pretty much the same team from a year ago.
