MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Tampa Bay Rays at Oakland A's

Tampa Bay (Faria) +113 at Oakland (Gray) O/U 8
Recommendation: Tampa Bay

The Rays have come out of the break playing winning baseball, winning four out of five on their current road trip. They’ve been clutch throughout this run; getting the key outs from their bullpen in high leverage situations and taking advantage of late inning opportunities themselves, like their ‘two out, nobody on’ rally in the bottom of the ninth on Tuesday. The Rays trail Boston by only two games in the AL East standings right now, a surging team worth riding, especially in this underdog price range.

Meanwhile, the Oakland A’s, have been a steady fixture in last place in the AL West for the last two months. They notched a series sweep over the Indians last weekend., but were unable to carry any of that momentum forward, losing the first two games of this set. It’s surely worth noting that the last time Oakland had a home sweep, they followed it up by getting swept in a four game set at home in their next series. This is not the type of squad primed to deliver extended runs of winning baseball over the back half of the campaign."

Oakland GM Billy Beane has announced that the team is in full rebuild mode. He just traded two key relievers for future prospects, leaving manager Bob Melvin to say this about his bullpen moving forward: "We'll figure it out on the fly a little bit.” Figuring it out on the fly cost them the game last night, and the negative momentum in Oakland is palpable right now, even with ace Sonny Gray on the hill. Gray, too, is on the trading block — be sure to play this game as ‘action’ not as ‘listed pitchers’ if you get involved with a wager. Take the Rays.
