Pick #1 – Los Angeles Angels at Tampa Bay Rays
The game were looking to get action down on tonight is the Los Angeles Angels (34-50) versus the Tampa Bay Rays (34-49) who are each some of the hottest teams in baseball right now both looking to get back on the trail towards .500. One of our best outcome indicators is in full swing on this pick as we have already seen the spread total for this MLB hop from 8.5 to 9 giving us every signal that the savvy money is on the OVER today in this spot. Jumping right into some of the other vital trends we notice that the The total has gone OVER in 4 of LA Angels's last 6 games highlughting the fact at just how well the Angels have been hitting the ball lately. These next stats are yet another highlight of just how great of a matchup specific run in we get tonight as the total has gone OVER in 6 of Tampa Bay's last 8 games when playing at home against LA Angels. These are highly favorable featured trends that all point to the OVER when evaluating tonights potential pick. These two teams ran against each other just yesterday resulting in a 13-5 Angeles romp. The Tampa Bay Rays will most likely look to make a home comeback statement of their own today by putting up an equally impressive amou of runs and the public consensus seems to agree as this MLB total over/under spread is now reching a whopping 76% at the time of this MLB over/under team total review. The Los Angeles Angels produce 4.5 runs this year and the Rays show up with 4.04 runs on average for the season so we are already approaching the OVER nicely if just the status quo in terms of runs play out. While park factor for this game is a little on the low side at a -89 rating we still have to love the way these teams are hitting lately. The weather at Tropicana Field is looking like 89°F, Sunny , Humidity is 77% and a Wind East-southeast 2 mph so very nice co ditions for the bats to come alive. Another factor we have to really like that points to the OVER in this contest is the fact that the Angels have an uncertain bullpen so if the Rays can get past J. Weaver (R) which should not be an issue then there should be plenty of runs to pick up in later innings off the Los Angeles relief. A final and most important point to this lean is the fact that starting pitcher J. Weaver (R) is pitching very questionably as of late with a 7 day ERA of 10.31 and an on the road ERA of 4.74. He also shighly truggles with right handed hitting giving up a high .311 batting average to hitters (6/9 RH hitters on Rays tonight) which should pose problems for him against the Rays. Also D. Smyly (L) has posted a 5.40 ERA in his last week of pitching while giving it up more to right handed hitters as well (8/9 LH hitters on Angels). The computer predicted score for this matchup is 11.6 so lets stick with the OVER at 9 and feel good about this win coming to fruition.
