2008 Season MLB Baseball Past Picks
May 28, 2008
Texas at Tampa Bay
Wednesday 05/28 12:40 PM Eastern
3 units on Tampa Bay -1.5 runs +135 (runline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
The Rays continue to lead the AL East and now that we are almost a third of the way through the season, this feat is no longer labeled as a fluke. For the first time in their franchise history, the Rays have built a home-field advantage as they enter this game at 20-9. The better part is how they are winning those 20 games as they are now 16-4 to the -1.5 runline in those 20 wins and overall, including the losses, stand at 16-13. To be getting this team at +135 with an overall home performance of covering 55% is tremendous value. The Rays are also off to a 16-5 start at home as a favorite, so they are winning when they should. Texas has done better on the road, but when they have to play very good teams they struggle, as witnessed by their four-straight defeats at Boston. This one comfortably goes to the Rays.
