The Tampa Bay Rays host AL East rival Toronto Blue Jays for the opener of a three-game set Friday night. They’ve started the week by winning three of four games against the Fish, and I like the Rays here with their ace Chris Archer (2-1, 3.43 ERA) on the hill.
Archer limited the Blue Jays to one run on four hits through 7 1/3 innings of work his last time out. He’s been solid and allowed two runs or fewer in four of his six starts this season.
The Blue Jays turn to Francisco Liriano (2-2, 3.97 ERA). He held the Rays to one run on four hits through five frames his last time out, but he was charged with five runs on three hits and four walks here at the Trop in his season debut on April 7. Liriano is 3-3 with a 5.49 ERA in 12 career appearances against the Rays and has been owned by Evan Longoria who is 7-for-23 with a pair of homers against the southpaw.
The Rays are 5-2 in Archer’s last seven home starts vs. Toronto, and this looks like a fair price on the home team.
Mike Lundin has picked 68-48 (59%) MLB Totals since June 12, 2016. He’s firing a BIG BET AT THE BASES Friday night. as he releases his Top Rated 10 AL West *GAME OF THE WEEK*. Mike is also looking to continue his dominance on the hardwood with a premium NBA selection on Spurs/Rockets.
