Struggling Rays Look To Get Back On Track Versus Blue Jays This Weekend

Baseball Weekend Free PicksThe Tampa Bay Rays were the hottest team in baseball for the month of July, but August didn’t start off nearly as well as they lost five-straight to fall games back of the Boston Red Sox for first place in the American League East. The Rays will look to get back on track with the worst team in the division visiting this online sports betting weekend, while Boston hosts the struggling New York Yankees with A-Rod back in town.

Colorado Rockies @ Baltimore Orioles
Friday, 7:05 PM ET

The Orioles survived a rough month of July but have managed to remain in the hunt for an AL East title, as they are still just 4.5 games back of the Red Sox for first place. Baltimore can’t afford to fall any further back in the AL East, and will look to take advantage of a home set against the visiting Rockies this weekend. Wei-Yin Chen is coming off of consecutive losses, and has now allowed exactly three earned runs in four-straight starts. That means that four is the magic number for the Orioles’ offense versus Juan Nicasio for Colorado, which shouldn’t be too big of a problem considering he has given up an average of five earned runs over his last three starts and posted a 5.04 ERA over the course of the sportsbook reviews season.

 

MLB Betting Pick: Baltimore Orioles - 150

New York Yankees @ Boston Red Sox
Friday, 7:10 PM ET

Red Sox fans must be absolutely loving this whole A-Rod debacle, as Yankees’ fans struggle with both poor pitching and an offense that hasn’t been able to get much going with or without Rodriguez in the lineup. It’s amazing that after everything he has admitted to Andy Pettitte still doesn’t get much slack, but he hasn’t won a price per head start since early July and his ERA has climbed to 4.62 while going 0-3 since that mark. Boston will counter with Felix Doubront, who has brought his ERA down to 3.66 on the year while leading the Red Sox to wins in each of his last two starts.

MLB Betting Pick: Boston Red Sox - 140

Toronto Blue Jays @ Tampa Bay Rays
Friday, 7:10 PM ET

RA Dickey’s struggles are the perfect testament to everything that has gone wrong for the Blue Jays this year, as they have struggled on both sides of the ball. The reigning NL Cy Young award winner is 9-11 with a 4.46 ERA, and was beaten up for four earned runs over seven innings in a live betting loss to Tampa Bay the last time he started against them. The Rays will counter with Roberto Hernandez, who hasn’t been any better. Hernandez is 6-12 with a 4.95 ERA, and will have a tough time closing out the Toronto offense as they look to steal one on the road.
