Tips On Betting Orioles Rays – The Tide Starts to Turn

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 5/30/2012 3:55:00 PM

The sports betting sites are starting to get used to the cycles that the Baltimore Orioles go through every season. The Orioles have jumped out to the AL East lead in the last few season but, by June, the Orioles are plummeting like a rock to the bottom of the standings. June is usually the time of the year when the Yankees and the Red Sox get back on track and the Orioles start to fade off into the distance. But lately, the Tampa Bay Rays have inserted itself into the AL East pennant discussion each of the last four or five seasons. Considering the amount of turnover the Rays experience each off-season, the consistency the team gets from its roster is impressive.

As June approaches, the Orioles and Rays are tied for the AL East lead. The online sportsbook experts expect the Rays to be leading the AL East by the time this series is over. But the Orioles may have one or two surprises up their sleeves before the actual June collapse begins.

Friday – Baltimore Orioles @ Tampa Bay Rays

The Orioles may still have a little something left in the tank, but it won't be enough to get this series off to a fast start. The Rays will send David Price to the mound and while Price is struggling to find his control, he is still one of the better clutch pitchers in the AL. The Orioles counter with Wei-Yin Chen who has an impressive record of 4-1 to start the season, but his ERA has been creeping up. One of the things that the Rays have always been able to do is to hit against struggling pitchers. The Rays should be able to get to Chen and take the opening game of this series.

Pick: Tampa Bay Rays

Saturday – Baltimore Orioles @ Tampa Bay Rays

Jeremy Hellickson takes the mound for the Rays in this game and that has all of the online betting sites handing this game to the Rays. But not so fast. Hellickson has hit a rough patch the past week or so and has seen his ERA climb towards the 3.00 mark. He has given up three runs on seven hits in the last seven days and all three runs were earned. The Orioles counter with Brian Matusz who beat the Rays the last time he pitched against them. This game will be quite a surprise to the Tampa Bay faithful as the Orioles pull out a close one.

Pick: Baltimore Orioles

Sunday – Baltimore Orioles @ Tampa Bay Rays

Sunday is the chance for the Rays to redeem itself for not giving Jeremy Hellickson run support the day before. Tommy Hunter takes the mound for the Orioles and will make things very interesting for the Rays batting order. But Hunter has had control issues as of late and could be walking into a buzzsaw on Sunday. The Rays will put the struggling Matt Moore on the mound who will find it difficult to keep up with the Baltimore bats.

Pick: Baltimore Orioles
