Tampa Bay vs. Miami,

Score: 0 - 1
Total: -117/+7½ Under
*3 Star MLB Total DOMINATION* The Tampa Bay Rays offense has been in a horrible slump of late. It doesn't help that Wil Myers is now out of the lineup as is Ryan Hanigan. Tampa Bay hasn't scored more than 2 runs in any of their last five games. They could only muster up 5 hits and one run last night despite going against Randy Wolf. This time around they'll be up against the talented Henderson Alvarez. Alvarez is coming into his own as a pitcher of late. The Rays start Chris Archer, who has an electric fastball. Miami's offense isn't as good as their numbers from this year suggest. I expect regression from their offense in the weeks ahead. Vic Carapazza is behind the plate here, and he has one of the biggest strike zones in the league. Alvarez has thrown 15 innings with him behind the dish and has given up only one run.
The under is 4-0 in the Rays last 4 road games. The under is 4-0 in their last 4 games overall. The under is 3-0 in Alvarez's last 3 Tuesday starts. The under is 7-1-2 in the last 10 games between these two in Miami. An 18-1 angle. Take the under.
