Starting tonight for the Rays will be Wade Davis who is 5-6 with an ERA of 4.91 with 46 Ks and 30 Walks and on the mound for the Braves it will be Tommy Hanson who is 6-3 with an ERA of 3.69 with 80 Ks and 27 Walks. Davis will try for a win as he has lost two straight starts. While Hanson is looking for his 4th straight win in Inter league play. See if that affects the MLB Betting lines and MLB Odds on this IL game tonight.
The Braves are presently 1st in the National League East Division, but are facing a real strong pitching staff of the Rays in this IL Series. This IL series is all about pitching, and if the Rays Shields and Pierce pitch well in this IL Series then the Rays have a great chance in winning this series. During this IL series the pitchers will be batting and they won’t be using designated batters. Does this really matter as far as the MLB Betting lines and MLB Odds are concerned?
The RAYS are a strong 23-8 this 2010 season in the away games, while the BRAVES are also a strong 19-7 while playing on their home field. With that said, and being Inter League play it appears that the BOTH TEAMS have a 45-55 %+ chance of winning this matchup. Will this have a negative effect on the MLB Betting lines or MLB odds for this GAME?
