Wednesday Wiz Day: Tampa Bay Rays absolutely own the AL East, but Boston Red Sox need to win tonight
Once again my friend, the Tampa Bay Rays have absolutely crushed all competition in the American League East up until today. Tampa Bay went 18-1 against the Orioles this season, are 8-5 against Toronto, 9-7 against the Yankees, and come into tonight 11-7 against the Red Sox, after two brutal losses for Boston.
The Rays have wiped the floor with Boston's pitching, and we are quickly getting into must-win territory for the Red Sox.
I have to believe Boston will not be swept here at home, so I will back the Sox.
Check for schedules
Tampa Bay Rays (-115) at Boston Red Sox (-105), 7:10 p.m. EDT; Rays -1 (+114), Red Sox +1 (-141), O/U 10
Wiz's Pick: it is the last stand of the Red Sox, so I have to take them here on the ML (-105)
