My, how things have changed. Tampa Bay in virtually a pick-em game on the road without Kazmir on the hill - for good reason. The value is there as odds-makers try to decide if this team is for real and 40+ games into the season, they are every bit the real deal. Sonnanstine has pitched the Rays to six straight wins, and an ERA of under three, while the Rays have outscored these six teams by a margin of 34-14! Oakland is playing the worst baseball of any team right now, as they limp into this one just 2-8 in their last 10. Dana Eveland has pitched well, but the A's are just 1-3 in his last four starts. The main reason is this A's team has produced just 19 runs in their last eight games, and even Sandy Koufax would struggle to find the win column with that type of support. The Rays are winning and no reason to see it any differently today.
