3 units on Tampa Bay -180 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: loss
2 units on Game Total UNDER 8.5 -110 (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: loss
The Florida Marlins have had difficulty generating offense on the road and, as testament, they have plated three runs or less in eight of their last 14 road tilts. They have a shot of staying in this one despite the offensive deficiencies, as Anibel Sanchez takes the mound. Sanchez has allowed two runs or less in eight of his last nine starts. Not to be outdone, James Shields has allowed three runs or less in eight of his last nine. The runs are going to be difficult to come by here, while the Marlins are going to have a tough time winning as they are 6-16 behind Sanchez on the road and just 1-8 on field turf. The Rays are 7-1 behind Shields facing a losing team and the UNDER has gone 20-4-2 in Sanchez' last 26 road starts. I'll go Tampa Bay and UNDER here.
