Tampa Bay at Baltimore

3 units on Baltimore +1.5 runs -120 (runline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
The Tampa Bay Rays have some good starting pitching, but the underbelly of their bullpen is their Achilles heel, and it is costing them early. Baltimore is a team that can score runs as they were a team a year ago that scored 10+ in 16 games - the best for any team with a losing record. Jeremy Guthrie had an off year last season and he is a quality pitcher, and I expect him to have a bounce-back season. Tampa has only gotten 6 runs in 19.1 innings over the last year plus this season. The Rays are just 2-10 behind Garza on the road as a favorite of -110 to -150. I'll go with Baltimore on the runline.
