Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach MLB Rotation #961 Thursday Free Pick Tampa Bay Rays Money Line (+) @ Atlanta Braves @ 7:10 PM ET - With no fans in the stands the home field advantage isn't quite what it is supposed to be. Yes it is early in the season but if you look at the standings heading into today's action you'll hardly see any teams that have winning home records. Most are at .500 or worse. That said, I really like the road dog value here with the Rays. Tampa Bay entered yesterday's action with a 4-1 record on the season while the Braves had a losing record entering Wednesday. While Atlanta managed to get the better of Tampa last night, I look for the Rays to get right back on track and turn the tables on them this evening. The Rays are a high quality team with excellent pitching. Behind Ryan Yarbrough is a strong bullpen and plus I look for the Tampa Bay lefty to pitch very well at Trust Park. He is 16-4 with a 3.41 ERA in his career appearances away from Tropicana Field. Look for another strong road outing from Yarbrough here and the Rays will do enough at the plate against Max Fried to get the upset win in this one. Free Pick TAMPA BAY
