Tampa Bay Rays
At first glance the Rays would seem like a nice option on Friday night against the Angels. This is especially true as the battle for the AL wild card seems like it’s going to come down to the final game of the year.
Tampa Bay needs a win Friday night in Anaheim as they are just 0.5 games up on Cleveland for the 2nd wild card spot. The Indians, A’s , and Rays are all fighting for 2 postseason berths and it’s only percentage points that separate them.
Of course needing a win doesn’t always equate to getting one. Tampa Bay was in a crucial spot Thursday night vs. the Rangers and dropped a 6-4 decision on getaway day.
The loss was the 2nd in a row to the Rangers but the Rays are hard to gauge because they had been winners in 7 of 9 games prior. Tampa Bay does like going to Anaheim though where they are 26-10 in the last 36 games.
It looks like Tampa Bay is going with Charlie Morton on Friday night. He has allowed 4 ER in two starts in September but both were at home. In Morton’s last two road games, he has given up 6 ER at Houston and 4 ER at Seattle. Morton has a 6.00 ERA in one start vs. LAA this season.
Los Angeles Angels
If there’s anything trending the Angels’ way this season it’s important to remember, LAA are incredible underachievers this season. The Angels have now dropped 8 of the last 10 which includes two 4-game losing streaks.
The Angels have a lot of talent on offense, yet the squad has been held to a total of 6 runs in the last 4 games. Mike Trout and Justin Upton are also both questionable on Friday which gives more value to the Rays.
LAA sends Andrew Heaney to the bump on Friday. The lefty has had back-to-back rough outings, giving up 4 ER to both Boston and the White Sox in his last two starts.
Prior to that though, Heaney had 4 of 5 starts allowing 2 ER or less to opponents.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Rays are 6-1 last 7 overall
- Rays are 2-5 last 7 road games
- Angels are 11-27 last 38 overall
- Angels are 6-1 in Heaney’s last 7 starts
- Rays are 26-10 last 36 in Anaheim
Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. Los Angeles Angels MLB Prediction:
This is a tough one to handicap but for the price (TB -141) you have to go with the home team (LAA +120). The Angels are home ‘dogs on the assumption that Trout doesn’t play but he could be back in there giving the Angels solid value.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Angels +120
Not a bad bet to pair with an under play.
