2008 Season MLB Baseball Past Picks
June 10, 2008
Tampa Bay at Los Angeles
Tuesday 06/10 10:05 PM Eastern
3 units on Los Angeles -1.5 runs +176 (runline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
The Angels were hammered by the Rays last night, so this one should get their attention. Jared weaver has some nasty stuff and when he is on, he hangs a lot of 0's on the scoreboard for opponents. He is 29-16 lifetime and already has pitched in 12 games in his short career allowing 0 runs, and three of them have come this season. James Shields has pitched well for the Rays, but he carries a 10-21 mark for his last four years of work on the road into this one. When the Rays lose on the road, they have been getting pounded, as they have dropped their last 10 to the +1.5 runline to AL teams, never producing more than four runs and being outscored 73-26, or by 4.7 runs a game. Have to like the value here, getting huge odds against a team that has shown not to merit them. Angels with a big win.
