MLB Free Picks: Tampa Bay Rays Over Chicago White Sox Senior Sports Handicapper Matt Rivers Monday is on the Tampa Bay Rays (-113) to the White Sox.

Reasoning: It was a rough last series for Ozzie Guillen’s White Sox against the Angels and in revenge today I’ll make a play on David Price and the somewhat improving Tampa Bay Rays.

I have been bashing Joe Maddon’s regressing squad for a while now and I am still not all that high on today’s home squad but all of a sudden Chicago has hit the skids and their bullpen is horrific.

Edwin Jackson just recently won fairly easily at US Cellular against David Price and it’s the second phenomenal Jackson outing against his former team when you include that wild no-hitter last season. So the guy does pitch very well against the Rays, I get it. But Jackson is still not the blue chip Cy Young type hurler that David Price can be and after losing that last matchup I can’t help but take my chances back at the Trop on Price and the at least improving Rays.

Johnny Damon has shown some signs of life and despite having a less that stellar offense with the departures of Carl Crawford and Carlos Pena and the injury to Evan Longoria I have a feeling that Tampa will get a very good pitching performance from Price and scratch across enough to get it done in the end.

The Sox are far from a confident bunch right now and Guillen exploding isn’t all that far off. Plus the “good guys” are not exactly a dome type team that can play some small ball on the fast turf and run the bases.

I expect both starters to look very good and the Rays to continue the recent Sox misery.

Top expert pick on this game: Tampa Bay from Matt Rivers

For more information: I’ve had 31 winning days and 12 losing days. Just think about that. Then think about 9 million stars of profit when the highest play that I release, and it is not very often, is only a 500,000*. There are a ton of clowns out there but I am the real deal and will continue to be that deal.

Both NBA plays today; 400,000* 76ers-Heat (won game one on Philly) and a 300,000* Pacers-Bulls. Bonus 200,000* on the diamond involving the Indians and Royals. Three more plays and three more winners, it’s just that easy. Click now to purchase
