Rays a Good Under Bet So Far

Rays-make-playoffsIf you like to be the Over/Under a lot, then you should love the Tampa Bay Rays. Look at the 7-5 A. L. East leaders scores so far this season:

Assuming an O/U line of 7.5 per game:

3/31 Rays 9 Jays 2. OK that was an over

4/1 Jays 4 Rays 2. Under wins.

4/2 Jays 3 Rays 0. Under wins.

4/3 Rays 7 Jays 2. Another for the over.

4/4 Rays 8 Rangers 1. Another over.

4/5 Rays 5 Rangers 4. Another over. Now you’re saying, “wait a minute, the over is winning nearly ever game so far.” Yes the over has won four or five of the first six. Now look at the next six.

4/6 Rangers 3 Rays 0. Under wins.

4.7 Royals 4 Rays 2. Under wins.

4/8 Rays 1 Royals 0. Under wins.

4/9 Royals 7 Rays 3. Over wins.

4/11 Rays 2 Reds 1. Under wins

4/12 Rays 1 Reds 0. Under wins again.

So like the Rays, the under is now 7-5. But more importantly, the under has won five of the last six.

Not only is the under winning a lot of these games but you could even get better odds on a teaser moving the line down. These guys can pitch. And they obviously cannot hit. in 12 games they have already been shut out twice and thrown a pair. In five of the 12 games they have held the opposition to 2 runs or less five times. Also in those 12 they have scored two or fewer runs six times. It took them until their fourth game of the season to hit a home run. Matt Joyce leads the team right now with two home runs after hitting his second on Friday in Cincinnati.

The pitching staff has two starters, Chris Archer and Alex Cobb, with an ERA under 2.00. David Price and Matt Moore (who is currently on the 15 day DL) is under 3.00. That is four of the five starters. Grant Balfour has picked up four saves in his five appearances and has an ERA of 0.00.

So if offense is what you like, the Rays are not for you, especially in the last week. If you like a pitcher’s duel, this is your team.

Today’s Rays vs Reds game is the one that Moore’s turn in the rotation came up. Instead the Rays will start Cesar Ramos against Tony Cingrani. Ramos has pitched in four games and has allowed only one run. Cingrani has also pitched well with an ERA of 2.45 and 14 Ks to only six walks.

Sportsbook has the Rays +1.5 -180 and the Reds -1.5 +157 ATS. Moneyline is Rays +130 and Reds -140. O/U is 7.5 with over -105 and under -115. We like the Reds -140 in this one. Ramos is not a normal starter so one has to wonder how long he can go. We also like the Under -115.
