Tampa Bay Rays Betting Odds

The Tampa Rays betting odds are looking better than they did last year. A year ago, they really laboured to bring any runs across the plate. But they have made steps forward by acquiring Corey Dickerson’s bat and his proven production. They could make a move in the standings, but they have their work cut out for them as they try to catch the upper class of contenders in the American League East, in the form of the New York Yankees, The Toronto Blue Jays, and the Boston Red Sox.  [+]

The Rays’ bats can’t, on the surface, compete with this type of fire power, although, the division lacks a really dominant rotation. So the potential is there for the Rays’ hitters to punch some holes and do some damage.

Tampa Bay Rays Betting

One interesting thing to note with Tampa Bay Rays betting is their use of the defensive shift. According to the Bill James Handbook, Tampa Bay led the majors with 1,462 defensive shifts last year and they actually saved a total of 23 runs as a result. They are actually estimated to have improved themselves by 2 1/2 wins last year via the shift alone. 

Also, remember, when betting on any baseball match-up take a good look at the pitching matchup, the injuries, and trends. Games are a bit harder to predict in baseball, because the first place team in a division isn’t actually much better than the last place team, most years. So, that means if the best team in the division is playing a 3 game series with that division’s worst team, it’s very likely the cellar-dweller will win at least 1 of those games. So place your bets with that in mind.

In terms of the Rays, they were second worst in the entire American league last year for offense. It’s hard to imagine them improving enough to make some noise and push for a wild card spot. This is compounded by their pitching getting tested nearly every night by the fat bats in the American League East.
