Baseball playoffs odds fans have seen a lot throughout the history of the great sport. But you’d be hard pressed to find any fan that’s engaged in baseball playoffs betting that can recall as unlikely as a story as this year’s Tampa Bay Rays team.
The team dropped the ‘Devil’ from their former name ‘Devil Rays’, and went from being the absolute worst to one of the best teams and qualifying for the baseball playoffs odds season.
Baseball playoffs odds are full of great stories every year, but this year’s Rays team is about as impressive as they come. After years of being the laughing stock of the Major Leagues, this year’s Rays team is no joke. Not only did they qualify for the baseball playoffs odds, but it won its division. And as any baseball playoffs betting aficionado knows the AL East is not just any division.
Over the past decade it has been the toughest competition in baseball. In order to qualify for the baseball playoffs odds the Rays had to beat out lasting heavyweights like the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox. Beat them the Rays did, and what’s more impressive is that in the head to head battles down the stretch, with the Baseball playoffs odds on the line, the Rays handed their much wealthier opponents their hats.
A young lineup of breakout players has aided this team in its climb to the top. Rookie of the Year Evan Longoria has been outstanding and is a reason for why this team is in the baseball playoffs odds this year. But it’s hard to single out any one player as this team has been all about teamwork since day one. You never know who the hero will be when this team takes the field and that makes them difficult for baseball playoffs odds opponents to scout.
However, one thing about this team is its defense. One of the most important ingredients to baseball playoffs odds success is defense and this team has it in spades. Combined with a very deep bullpen, this team is a formidable opponent when the baseball playoffs betting start.
The team’s “Achilles’ heel” will be it’s youth and lack of baseball playoffs odds experience. But if the team can get off to a good start behind its 1-2 pitching punch of James Shield and Scott Kazmir, it would set a great tone for this team, and who knows what it might accomplish in the baseball playoffs odds. It’s already proven it can beat the best teams in the regular season, now it must do it during the baseball playoffs betting.
