Rays Blue Jays Betting Tips – Blue Jays Have No Excuse Heading In To Mini Series Against Tampa Bay

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 5/9/2012 3:13:21 PM

For the last couple of years, fans of the Toronto Blue Jays have voiced their complaints about playing in such a tough division, with the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox using the advantage of not being burdened by salary restrictions in order to consistently field playoff contenders. However, while it may be more difficult to win in a division where four of the five teams have records better than .500 this season, two of those teams are the Tampa Bay Rays and Baltimore Orioles, who have found ways to win and left the Blue Jays with no excuse but to get the job done. Toronto opens a three-game set against the division-rival Rays at home this Monday, and will be playing with urgency as they head in to a two-game sportsbook mini series against one of the worst road teams in their division.

Despite a solid record overall, the Rays have struggled on the road this season with just six wins in 14 games, compared to a 13-3 record at home. The Blue Jays have been absolutely thrilled so far this season with the play of starter Brandon Morrow, who has won each of his last three starts while allowing just one earned run over a combined 21.2 innings of work. Morrow went the distance in his last outing, throwing a complete-game shutout while allowing just three hits and striking out eight in a 5-0 win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, and Toronto is hoping that he can continue to maintain his consistency as they welcome in the Rays. Tampa Bay will counter with Jeff Niemann for the opener. Niemann has yet to pitch six full innings this year despite throwing over 100 pitches in each of his last two sports bet starts.

Whatever it is that the Blue Jays’ pitchers have been doing through their last rotation, the  players in Toronto have to hope it continues as Henderson Alvarez is another pitcher that threw a complete game shutout against the Angels, and he will start game two against the Rays. Alvarez struck out only three, but gave up just six hits and no runs in a 4-0 win over Los Angeles, bringing his ERA down to 2.83 on the season. Tampa Bay however should be much better equipped in a game that will likely come down to which team makes more mistakes, as they counter with All Star David Price. Price is 5-1 with a 2.35 ERA on the year, and the Rays have won four-straight with him on the mound. Toronto has been the same team at home that it has been on the road, and settling for a split in this two-game mini set with Price pitching the online sportsbook finale won’t necessarily be a bad thing.
