MLB Betting Trends

Tampa Bay

The Rays are 25-5 in their last 30 Sunday games. Tampa Bay is 7-1 in the last eight Yarbrough road starts. 

Los Angeles

The Angels are 17-36 in their last 53 games overall. Los Angeles is 0-5 in the last five Sandoval starts.


Tampa Bay is on a roll and it has a super efficient pitcher on the mound today. I'm not about to fade a team fighting for a Wild Card berth. The Angels have packed it in for the season and have been beat up with injuries, including one to superstar Mike Trout that has kept him out this week. The smart bet is on the Rays here.
