OffshoreInsiders.com Senior Sports Handicapper Matt Rivers has a baseball pick Tuesday and for the second straight day is on the Tampa Bay Rays (-102) to the White Sox.
Reasoning: I like John Danks and the White Sox are the definite superior lineup with the bigger bashers but Ozzie Guillen’s team has gone south in a hurry and until they are able to come back up for air I’ll fade them at this price.
Chicago was embarrassed at home by the Angels in that last series and did absolutely nothing last night against David Price. The confidence level is pretty low right now and Guillen is about to blow a gasket with the way his bullpen has been performing and the team as a whole.
Tampa Bay certainly isn’t the team they used to be with Crawford, Pena and the injured Longoria in the mix but give them credit as the last week has been much much better. Joe Maddon’s team has been winning games of late and Johnny Damon has been showing some signs of life coming through in the clutch. I don’t think the home squad is going to be much of anything in the end as they can’t compete anymore with the Yankees and Red Sox but right now at the Trop there is no reason why they can’t beat the struggling and ice cold ChiSox.
James Shields has some good stuff and it’s not like this plodding White Sox club can do much on the Tropicana Field turf with their style of play. There are pieces with Konerko, Dunn, Pierzynski and others but it hasn’t amounted to much ove the last little bit and I don’t see much changing today.
Danks should hold his own as the southpaw is pretty darn solid but I don’t see him getting that much support and the surging Rays should come out on top for the seventh time in the last eight games.
Top expert pick on this game: Tampa Bay from Matt Rivers
For more information: I did it one more time yesterday. The bigger play even lost and I still came through in the end. This is the single greatest run in the history of handicapping and if anybody said any different they would be a fool. 32 winning days vs. 12 losing days and 9.1 million stars of profit when the biggest play that I release is only 500,000* and that is extremely rare. Plus I only play a couple of games a night proving my greatness. It’s not too late to jump on board as this train just isn’t slowing down!
A trio of winners today led by a 400,000* on the diamond between the A’s and Red Sox. A pair of bonus winners including a 300,000* Knicks-Celtics (won game one on New York) and a 200,000* Indians-Royals (won last night on the Indians). Please don’t miss out, for your sake, please don’t. Rivers entire card is up at OffshoreInsiders.com
