The MLB wagering odds on this matchup are very close since it is expected to be an excellent pitching matchup between Tampa’s David Price and Toronto’s Shaun Marcum.
Baseball wagering odds will probably still favor the Rays even though Marcum has been Toronto’s best pitcher. He is 5-1 on the season with a 2.59 ERA. Last time out against Baltimore, Marcum went six innings and allowed no run and six hits. He is 2-0 in his career against Tampa Bay with a 0.75 ERA.
David Price is 7-2 this season with a 2.57 ERA. He went seven innings last time out against the Chicago White Sox and allowed three runs on four hits. This will be his second start of the season against Toronto. He was great last time against the Blue Jays as he threw a four-hit shutout against them in a 6-0 baseball wagering win.
Before this series began, the Rays had won 15 of the last 20 vs. the Blue Jays in baseball wagering. Tampa took two of three at home back in April against Toronto. Tampa had won five of the last eight in Toronto. Five of those games went under the total in MLB wagering.
Tampa has been so dominant on the road this season that is it almost hard to believe. They have a better road record than any team in the league and their numbers are amazing. Tampa wins in different ways as their hitting is in the top five in the league and their ERA is also in the top five in the league. There are not many weaknesses on this team.
The Toronto Blue Jays have been a major surprise this season in baseball wagering. They win with hitting. They have been second in the league in runs scored and it is their power that has been amazing. They set a team record in the month of May for home runs. They have simply been bashing the ball all season and covering the MLB wagering odds more than expected.
