Vegas Play of the Day: Tampa Bay Rays at Los Angeles Angels

Here’s the latest installment of the Play of the Day, which uses odds from the South Point. Our three sports writers started with a $10,000 bankroll — fictional, of course.

Tampa Bay Rays at Los Angeles Angels under-8.5 (minus-115): $345 to win $300

For a while there, it felt like there would be enough NBA playoff games to carry me at least through the month, but alas it’s an off day in hoops so I’m back to baseball.

I’m betting on a bit of a bounce-back from Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson, who gave up five earned runs in six innings last time out. Most of the year he’s been at least solid, though, and neither offense is playing over the top right now. A 4-3 game would be just fine as far as I’m concerned.

Standings: Bern (24-17-1, $11,350), Keefer (21-25, $8,153), Brewer (18-22-3, $7,370)
