AMERICAN LEAGUE WILD CARD BOOKIE BLASTER
Tampa Bay vs. Oakland,

Score: 5 - 1
Money Line: -133 Oakland
I like the Oakland Athletics to get the better of the Tampa Bay Rays in the American League Wild card game.
Tampa Bay righty Charlie Morton (16-6, 3.05 ERA) has owned Oakland this season, but he has never won at the Coliseum. He could also be worn down after putting in nearly 200 innings and note his 7.52 ERA over his last five road starts.
As for A's ace Sean Manaea (4-0, 1.21 ERA), the left-hander should be fairly fresh. Manaea has made just five regular-season starts covering 29 2/3 innings this year after missing nearly 12 months following surgery on a torn labrum.
The Rays are 1-4 in their last 5 road games vs. a left-handed starter while the A's are 20-8 in their last 28 home games vs. a right-handed starter.
8* play on Oakland Athletics.
