2008 Season MLB Baseball Past Picks
October 03, 2008
Chicago at Tampa Bay

3 units on Tampa Bay -1.5 runs +134 (runline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
The Rays won their first postseason game in franchise history yesterday, and will send their ace Scott Kazmir to the hill tonight. Kazmir has been outstanding at home, leading the Rays to a 12-2 mark and has a stellar 2.90 ERA to back it up. He has also quieted this White Sox team as they have a combined .204 average against him over his career. He faces Scott Buehrle, who has not fared as well against this current Rays’ roster of hitters as they collectively hit .305 against him. The Rays have the most home wins in MLB this year and I expect them to add one more to that total in a big way here and will back them on the runline.
