Tampa Bay (76-48) at Los Angeles Angels (62-63), 10:05 p.m. EDT Line: Tampa Bay -135, Los Angeles Angels +125 Total: 9
The Angels, currently eight games behind division-leading Texas, are hosting Wild Card leading Tampa Bay and trail the Rays by 14.5 games. Tampa Bay boasts the best road record in the majors this season at 37-24 (.607). Baseball Lines

Los Angeles, which hasn’t missed the postseason since the 2006 campaign, will start former Tampa southpaw Scott Kazmir (8-10, 6.40 ERA) who is having the worst season of his career. His home ERA (6.56) is actually a shade worse than his road mark (6.32). In his lone start of the season versus his ex-mates, Kazmir allowed three runs in five innings and was tagged with the loss. But since coming off the disabled list due to shoulder fatigue, Kazmir has allowed only six earned runs in 16 innings, posting a 1-1 mark in those three starts. In his prior four decisions, Kazmir went 0-4 with a 13.73 ERA.

Opposing the lefty on the mound will be righty James Shields (11-11, 4.82 ERA). Shields won his last start, allowing only one earned run in seven innings vs. the Texas. In his prior two starts, Shields allowed 12 earned runs in only nine innings in back-to-back defeats. Basketball Betting Lines

Tampa has fared well against left-handers this season, posting a mark of 29-13, with a .258 batting average, while Los Angeles has gone 45-41, with a .264 batting average versus right-handers. Baseball Betting Lines

Expect the Rays to continue their trend of beating AL teams with good pitching staffs: According to FoxSheets, TAMPA BAY is 48-23 (+19.2 Units) against the money line vs. AL teams allowing 4.7 or less runs/game on the season this season. The average score was TAMPA BAY 5.5, OPPONENT 3.7 – (Rating = 2*).
