Baseball Betting: Tampa Bay Rays vs. Boston Red Sox

The Tampa Bay Rays technically still have a chance to make the playoffs, but with the days quickly melting into October, time is running out for a run to the postseason. There is no room for error for the Rays in the last 9 games of their season, so a win over the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday night is crucial if they want to make a miraculous run to the playoffs. It would certainly be a long shot, but imagine their momentum should they pull it off. They would certainly warrant a bet on MLB baseball at that point.

The question at hand, however, is whether the Rays deserve a wager on Wednesday night against the Red Sox in front of the Green Monster at Fenway. Certainly the Rays will enter as the favorites, as they go up against a Red Sox team that has been nothing but disappointing all year long.

At this point in the season, the Red Sox have more wins than just 3 teams in the American League, and things get even worse when they head into Fenway. The Red Sox have the third worst home record in all of baseball, a fact certainly not lost on the die hard Sox fans that make it into Fenway every day.

With the home field advantage out the window, and the motivation of the looming playoffs on the side of the Rays, this game looks like an easy choice for anyone looking to bet on MLB baseball. You will have to check the live lines, certainly, but the right choice on an MLB wager on Wednesday is a win by the Tampa Bay Rays over the Boston Red Sox.
