The Los Angeles Angels and the Tampa Bay Rays will meet on Saturday from Anaheim. All odds for all MLB games can be found at Bovada sportsbook.
The Angels are moving backwards in the standings and their loss on Friday did not help them. They scored just three runs on 10 hits and received a rare bad outing from Jered Weaver in the loss. Tonight the Angels will start CJ Wilson. Wilson has only allowed 131 hits in 154 innings of work good enough for a 3.32 ERA.
On the other hand and out of nowhere the Rays have vaulted themselves into the playoff picture. They scored 12 runs on 17 hits and James Shields coasted to the win on the mound in the rout. Tonight Tampa will start Alex Cobb who has won his last three starts. In 90 innings of work Cobb is pitching to a 4.08 ERA.
Los Angeles is 2-5 in their last seven games overall, 2-5 in their last seven home games, and 0-6 in Wilson’s last six starts against a team with a winning record. Tampa Bay is 7-1 in their last eight games following a win, 9-2 in their last 11 games overall, and 2-5 in Cobb’s last seven starts after scoring seven or more runs in their previous game. Tampa Bay has won 10 of the last 11 meetings of these two.
The Rays are absolutely rolling right now and you are getting them at a very nice price in this game. We’ll take the Rays as a moneyline underdog on the road at sports books.
