Baltimore at Tampa Bay MLB Saturday Betting Action

Rays Go for Fourth Straight Win

The Rays are in second place in the AL East, have won three straight and are in second place in the AL Wild Card race. Coming off a 2-0 defeat of the Orioles on Friday night, Jeremy Hellickson takes the mound for Tampa Bay Saturday. In his career versus the Orioles, Hellickson is 5-2 with an ERA of 2.25. He has been dominant of late, pitching to a 2-0 record in his last three starts with an ERA of 1.96.

Orioles Looking to Get Back in the Win Column

The Orioles come into Saturday night’s game in third place in the AL East and third place in the AL Wild Card. After knocking around the Yankees a little bit last week, the Orioles have hit a bump in the road and dropped two straight games. They send rookie Wei-Yin Chen to the bump to take on the Rays tonight. Chen has struggled against the Rays posting an 0-2 record with an ERA of 5.84.

This weekend’s baseball odds can be found at SportsInteraction.com along with betting lines from across the sports world – including the Olympics. Sports Interaction has a generous bet of -1.5 (-145 ) for Tampa Bay. The Rays can make strides by taking the first two games of the series against the Orioles, which would further distance themselves from Baltimore in the standings.
