MLB Baseball Gambling Total:
The Tampa Bay Rays will look to snap their losing streak this Friday, as they take on the Toronto Blue Jays at their temporary home in Buffalo at Sahlen Field.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Tampa Bay Rays seems to be slowing down a bit in the AL East, as they have only won 4 of their last 14 games and will not have things easy here against the Blue Jays who have one of the very best offenses in the league.
The current run of form the Rays are in is not really a surprise though, as they were one of the best clutch hitting teams in the league with a team average around .230 and somehow ranking 5th in total runs with 397.
Overall the pitching remains solid, and that is especially true with the bullpen, as the Tampa Bay rays rank 3rd in WHIP at 1.14 and have been able to hold opponents to just a .226 overall batting average.
Shane McClanahan will get the call to the mound in this spot and although he has been solid so far this year with a 3-2 record and a respectable 4.09 ERA, this does seem like an awfully tough spot for a lefty with the Blue Jays having all kinds of right handed power.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Blue Jays are in a different boat then the Rays right now, as they have found a rich vein of form winning 8 of their last 10 games, and yes, they have been playing some weak teams over that stretch, but the current run they are on must be doing wonders for the morale in the locker room.
This Toronto side has a decent starting rotation, but it has been the bullpen who has been letting them down, as they have become one of the worst units in all of baseball after a solid start to the season.
That is the main concern for the Blue Jays here, as they have no listed pitcher as of yet, and if they go with a bullpen game here things certainly could get ugly, so be sure to stay on top of the news to see who will be pitching in the spot for the Blue Birds.

Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. Toronto Blue Jays MLB Prediction:
With the question marks over the Toronto pitching situation I can see this game getting over the total, as the Rays should be able to contribute enough on the scoreboard to get this one over with the state of the Jays bullpen. The Jays on the other side of things should be able to hit McClanahan just fine and also contribute to this total in what really could be a shootout type of game.
