Handicapping baseball can be a nightmare, but that's what Odds Shark is here for. Check out all our odds, computer picks, and betting trends to inform your bets from spring to the World Series.

Here's a look at two MLB expert picks you ought to consider for this slate of games on Tuesday, Feb. 27, 2024:

Tampa Bay Rays vs New York Yankees

NY Yankees+1.5 (-130)O 8.5 (-118)+150
TB Rays-1.5 (+110)U 8.5 (-102)-180

Pick: Rays -1.5 (+110)

Snip, snap, snip, snap. In MLB spring training games, the odds swing back and forth, entirely contingent on how many starters are in the lineup. Well, spoiler, the Yanks are rolling out all their B- and C-tier players.

Tampa is rocking with its normal top six, starting with Yandy Diaz, Brandon Lowe, and Randy Arozarena. Clarke Schmidt is on the hill for the Yanks; he's got good stuff but is prone to homers and hard contact. 

Atlanta Braves vs Pittsburgh Pirates

ATL Braves+1.5 (-170)O 9.0 (-112)+120
PIT Pirates-1.5 (+142)U 9.0 (-108)-142

Pick: Braves ML (+120)

Atlanta is rolling out a tragic lineup, but newly acquired lefty Chris Sale will make his spring debut Tuesday. The 34-year-old was sneaky solid in 20 starts with the Red Sox last year; it'll be up-and-up for him in a much more coherent Braves organization.

But back to the game. The Pirates are 0-3 SU this spring, and I'm inclined to fade them, despite a full lineup of regulars. It's worth it at slight plus money.
