Blue Jays vs Rays MLB Wednesday Night Handicapping Action

Villanueva Looks to Rebound after First Loss as a Jay

Carlos Villanueva was added to the Blue Jays starting rotation and answered by going 4-0 over five starts. His last time out, against the Mariners, he lost for the first time since entering the rotation. He will look to get back into the win column tonight against the Rays. Villanueva does not have good career numbers against Tampa but has a 6-1 record with an ERA of 3.19 this season.

Tampa Bay Rays Turn to Cobb for Second Straight Win

Alex Cobb has struggled this year, posting a 5-8 record with an ERA of 4.60. Things do not get better for the Tampa Bay righty, who is 3-6 with a 4.81 ERA at home. This will mark the first time in his career that Cobb will face the Blue Jays, so tonight should be an interesting matchup between the two teams. Cobb defeated the Athletics to notch his fifth win of the season last week in a stellar performance but that might not be enough to defeat the Blue Jays tonight.

The online betting sportsbooks at Bovada offer a generous monyeline of +122 for Carlos Villanueva and the Blue Jays over the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday night. Villanueva will continue his dominance as a starter for Toronto while Alex Cobb will continue his struggles at home for the Rays. The Blue Jays are the safe bet tonight.
