Red Sox and Rays Renew Heated Rivalry Friday Night in Tampa Bay
Rays looking for eighth straight victory tonight
Tampa Bay is red-hot right now, having won seven consecutive games. They have been able to pull within 7.5 games in the AL East and 4.5 games of a Wild Card spot. All of a sudden, the Rays are looking like a playoff contender if they can keep their hot streak going. They are also 8-2 in their last 10 games played. They will ask their ask, David Price, to keep the train rolling down the tracks Friday night.
Boston looks nothing like a defending world champion
After winning the World Series in 2013, the Red Sox will come far short of that distinction in 2014. They are in the cellar of the AL East, 9.5 games out of first place. They have lost three straight games and have a -31 run differential this year. Boston has struggled on the road this season, playing eight games under the .500 mark away from Fenway Park. Boston ace Jon Lester will take the mound on Friday.
When the Rays host the Red Sox on Friday, we will place our bets at BetOnline.ag, where the Rays are favored with Price on the bump. We will drop 10 percent of our bankroll on the Rays and the -137 money line as they take the opener of this series and win their eighth straight game.
