Rays Orioles Betting Predictions – Rays Steal Series Win In Baltimore

Posted by Dale “Skip” Lalonde on 7/20/2012 4:05:09 PM

Sports betting players should have an eye on Tampa Bay’s trip to Baltimore starting on Monday as both teams are trying to stay in the hunt for a wild card. . The Rays have been one of the toughest teams to peg all season, but they’ll come out on top at Camden Yards.

What: MLB Betting
When: Tuesday, July 24th – Thursday, July 26th
Where: Camden Yards, Baltimore, MD

Tuesday, 7:05 PM ET – Jeremy Hellickson (4-6, 3.55) vs. Wei-Yin Chen (8-5, 3.80)

Hellickson hasn’t won in nine starts and it has been a combination of poor fortune in terms of getting run support from his teammates, and command issues as he has had problems with walks lately. In 2012, Hellickson is 0-1 in two starts against the Orioles despite an ERA of 2.70, and his no-decision came in Baltimore, although he did give up two homers. Chen won for the first time in six starts in his last outing and inconsistency is to be expected of him in his first year in the majors. He lost his first start against the Rays, allowing five runs in 5.2 innings, but that was in Tampa Bay.

Chen has a solid 3.32 ERA at home as opposed to 4.27 on the road, while Hellickson’s ERA is 4.08 ERA and 3.25 at home. That means in Baltimore, the edge has to go to the home team unless Tampa Bay’s offense gives Hellickson some help.

MLB Betting Pick: Baltimore Orioles

Wednesday, 7:05 PM ET – David Price (13-4, 2.64) vs. Miguel Gonzalez (1-1, 2.59)

Price is now 5-0 in his last six starts, giving up nine earned runs over that time and he has to be in the running for the Cy Young award, along with Los Angeles’ Jered Weaver and that is bad news for the Orioles. The 26-year-old lefty tossed 7.1 scoreless innings against the Orioles in his first start against them, taking his record to 5-2 in 10 starts with a 2.58 ERA and Price is 2-0 in five trips to Baltimore with a 2.81 ERA. Gonzalez is making his sixth career appearance and only third start after taking a loss in Detroit, so this is definitely the first time that he has seen the Rays and it could be a little overwhelming to go up against one of the premier pitchers in the game.

Price knows that he has to be on top of his stuff if the Rays are going to stay in the running for a postseason spot and he has been pitching like the ace everyone thought he would be four or five years ago. It’s a big ask of an inexperienced player to keep his team in the game when you’re up against a pitcher like Price on the other side. Take the Rays in the second game of the series.

MLB Betting Pick: Tampa Bay Rays

Thursday, 12:35 PM ET – James Shields (8-6, 4.44) vs. Chris Tillman (1-1, 1.00)

It’s hard to know whether or not Shields is being affected by trade rumors as the Rays have to decide soon if they’re going to keep him. However, he isn’t making it easy with a string of subpar efforts and now Shields has given up four runs or more in five straight starts (in addition to four consecutive starts of allowing double-digit hits), which could scare off some suitors. Despite not pitching that well against the Orioles earlier this season, Shields took a win and is now 9-5 in 22 starts against them with a 3.54 ERA and in Baltimore, he is 6-1 in 11 starts with a 3.63 ERA. Tillman is back in the majors and he was rocked for seven innings in less than an inning in Minnesota, and he is 0-2 in his five career starts against the Rays with an ERA of 5.06.

The Rays need to figure out what they’re doing with Shields before the trade deadline on July 31st because it can’t be helping him to hear that he is on the block and when Shields is on, he forms with Price to make a dangerous one-two punch at the top of the rotation. Tillman struggled with back spasms and even though he says that he is ready to go, it can’t be encouraging if you want to back the Orioles because he isn’t a great pitcher when he is 100% healthy. Take the visitors in this online betting matchup.
