Runs, OVERS Galore At Tropicana Field

Despite losing 8-3 to the Boston Red Sox on Friday, the Tampa Bay Rays continued one of the hottest OVER plays in all of baseball. The OVER has cashed in 12 of the past 13 games at Tropicana Field with the Rays and their opponents averaging a combined 11.4 runs per game in that span.

Shark Bites
  • Logan Morrison has a lifetime .370 batting average against Rick Porcello.
  • The total has gone OVER in 4 of the Red Sox' last 5 games against the Rays.
  • The Red Sox are 1-3 SU in their last 4 games on the road with Rick Porcello as the starter.

Alex Cobb has been typically solid for the Rays but is coming off one of his occasional tough outings. Cobb allowed six hits, seven runs and two home runs in 6.2 innings of work against the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday. The right-hander has already faced the Red Sox twice this season and posted a 5.56 ERA while allowing opposing batters to hit .326.

Rick Porcello has not exactly been killing the game of late, with the righty posting a 6.28 ERA since the start of June. The biggest issue facing Porcello has been the long ball, as he has surrendered nine home runs in his past six starts, including four outings where he gave up two dingers.
