3 units on Tampa Bay -132 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
With a win here, the Tampa Bay Rays will set the franchise record for wins. Given that it's not even mid-August that says a lot about the tear this team is on this season. The same can't be said for Seattle who is just 45-72 on the year. Over their past seven games, the Rays are averaging 5.7 runs per game. Seattle just doesn't have the offense to stay in this one - not against Edwin Jackson. Jackson is 4-2 on the road this year with a 3.70 ERA. He's opposed by R.A. Dickey who has an 0-4 home record with a 6.75 ERA. This is a small price given the vast differences between these two teams.
