MLB Sports Handicapping Preview Cleveland (15-20) at Tampa Bay (26-11)

Our sports picks in the NBA are on track with a win on Boston and the Lakers in Game 1 of the opening rounds. We continue with small favorites and underdogs in MLB. The Tampa Bay Rays are tops in the American League currently. Tampa Bay has been better on the road then at home but still own a 12 – 7 home record. Tampa Bay’s starter for this afternoon is left hander David Price. In his last thirty four frames, Price has been very stingy surrendering seven earned runs on twenty four hits with twenty five strikeouts during this period of time. Cleveland is 9 – 12 on the road overall and will send David Huff to the mound. Huff has been dreadful on the hill this season going one and five with a pathetic earn run average of 5.35. In his last ten and two thirds innings Huff allowed ten runs on nineteen hits.
