Power Rankings:
The Red Sox sit at No. 8 in the American League in the current MLB power poll here at Odds Shark, while the Rays sit at an American League No. 3 on the same chart.

How They Match Up:
Offensively, the game matches up Boston's No. 4 ranked American League offense (4.6 runs per game) against a Rays defense and pitching staff that sits at No. 1 in the American League at 3.6 runs allowed per game. The Red Sox have been averaging 9.2 hits per game, more than the Rays have managed so far this season (8 hits on average).

Boston owns the American League's No. 12 defense, allowing 4.9 men per game to cross the plate. That contrasts with Tampa Bay's American League No. 1-rated defense.

The Rays were a 3-0 winner in their most recent outing at home against the Blue Jays. That made winners of bettors who got Tampa Bay at -235 on the moneyline, while the total score (3) was good news for UNDER bettors. Tampa Bay threw a shutout at Toronto in their last outing, using a shutdown performance by Jeremy Hellickson to defeat Toronto 3-0 on Sunday.

Boston won its last outing, a 2-1 result against the Orioles on September 23. Bettors who backed the Red Sox at +123 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (3) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window. The Red Sox hope for a dominant pitching performance similar to their last game when Felix Doubront struck out 11 batters in 2-1 victory on Sunday at Fenway Park.
