The Rays and Rangers played one of the wildest games Wednesday. As the first inning ended, the Rangers were on top 7-2. Yet just like in Tuesday?s comeback win, the Rays came back to tie in the top of the second. Although they fell short, look for the Rays to get back to their road winning ways. Grab Tampa Bay.

The Brewers just got the horrible news that Christian Yelich will be out for the rest of the season. It wasn?t an issue in Wednesday?s 7-5 victory over the Marlins. With an early start to Thursday?s game, look for the Marlins to take advantage as the slight home underdog.

Wed 9/11

In Tuesday?s home loss, the Astros surrendered seven first-run innings and lost 21-7. The lopsided affair against the A's featured the Astros bullpen pitching 8.2 innings. Heavy use will likely be in store again Wednesday as Jose Urquidy gets the start. Expect the Astros to have a bounce-back night and get back in the win column.

Wed 9/11

Losers of three straight, the Diamondbacks have slipped a bit in the NL wild-card chase. The pitching has been there, as they?ve allowed four runs or less in all the losses. It?s at the plate where they?ve failed. Look for a third opportunity against the Mets bullpen to finally pay off Wednesday. Grab the Diamondbacks.

Sun 9/8

No team has had a whirlwind frenzy quite like the Oakland Raiders have the last 72 hours. Now they must figure out a way to play Week 1 in a similar spot they were in 365 days ago. Last season in Monday Night Football they showed their true colors as four-point home underdogs to the LA Rams. Expect the Raiders to put forth a gutty effort but for Denver to defeat and cover against their division rivals.
