The American League’s three divisions have races for the playoffs that are neck and neck. One of those is in the AL East where the New York Yankees hold a one game lead over the Baltimore Orioles and a two-game lead over the Tampa Bay Rays.

Tonight the Rays will travel to Baltimore to open a three-game series versus the Orioles. Tampa has won six of its eight games during September and defeated the AL West leading Texas Rangers on Sunday night 6-0 to improve their record to 77-63. Tampa has the best team ERA in the major leagues at 3.22 and during their eight games in September, the team has an ERA of just 2.64. Tampa’s pitchers have also been able to hold hitters to a .185 average during September. 

Baltimore just finished a stretch of 10 days where they faced the first place Yankees on seven occasions. The Orioles won four of the seven meetings versus New York. During the season, the Orioles and Rays have split the 12 games they have played head to head and both teams have won three of the six games played at Camden Yards this season.

Tonight Baltimore will have rookie Miguel Gonzalez on the mound. The rookie is 6-4 this season and has an ERA of only 3.62. During the season, Gonzalez has faced the Rays on two occasions and is 1-1 in those two games. However, he did not fare well last Wednesday against Toronto, giving up five runs in a 6-4 loss.

Tampa will counter Gonzalez with Matt Moore. Moore is 10-9 this season and has an ERA of 3.66. In the past four starts on the road, Moore has an ERA of 1.75 and a 2-1 record.

The line at this time has the visiting Tampa Rays as the favorite -130 and the Orioles at +120. The total is sitting at 8. Smart money takes Tampa to win and the total to pay out to the UNDER bettors.
