5* MLB Underdog Game of the Month on Rays +118
The Rays blew a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the 9th last night to suffer just their 1st loss in 8 games and their 3rd loss in the last 13 meetings with the Mariners. I'm not hesitating to come right back with them this afternoon in the underdog role as they are 4-0 in their last 4 games as an underdog.
Tampa Bay scheduled starter Hellickson is 3-0 in his last 3 road starts, and he hasn't allowed more than 3 earned runs in any of those. It is also worth noting that the Rays have won 5 of his last 6 starts on the road.
I expect his road dominance to continue against a club he has never lost to. Hellickson is 3-0 (4-0 on the money line) with an ERA of 0.92 in 4 career starts versus Seattle. He hasn't allowed more than 1 run in any of those 4 starts.
Seattle's Hernandez is coming off a rough outing, and the Mariners have lost his last 2 against the Rays.
Take Tampa, which is showing tremendous value at this price given Hellickson's dominance of the Mariners.
