Rays Offering Little Bounce-Back Ability

The Tampa Bay Rays have not exactly come out with any fire following a loss this season, as the club has gone 8-24 in their past 32 games after taking the L. However, a three-game series with the Toronto Blue Jays may be a godsend, as the Rays swept the last series between the teams.  

Shark Bites
  • The Rays scored 31 runs during their past three-game series with the Jays.
  • The UNDER is 8-0 in the Blue Jays' past 8 games against the AL.
  • The Rays are 7-0 against the runline in their past 7 games against teams with winning records.

Jake Odorizzi has been untouchable in his past three starts, as the righty has not allowed a run in 20.2 innings of work entering this start. Odorizzi has already faced the Jays three times this season and has posted a 2.04 ERA while allowing Toronto to hit a measly .133.

If you’re a Blue Jays fan, you don’t want to see R.A. Dickey take the bump at home. The knuckleballer has a 5.40 ERA in 12 starts at the Rogers Centre, which has caused the Jays to go 2-10.
