Hot lines: Tuesday's best MLB bet

Texas Rangers at Tampa Bay Rays (-115, 6.5)

Is it a home-field advantage or disadvantage? Road teams are 9-4 in the playoffs so far and the away side is a perfect 4-0 in the Rangers-Rays series.

Tampa Bay is trying to become only the second team to win an ALDS after dropping the first two games of the series at home. The Rays starting and relief pitching came through at Texas like it hadn’t in Games 1 and 2, and the sleeping bats of big boppers Evan Longoria, Carlos Pena and Carl Crawford.

The same Rays who scored just one run on eight hits in the first two games of the series, touched home 11 times in Texas on 23 hits.

"When we got that win (Saturday) it seemed like everything changed then," Crawford told the Tampa Tribune. "You give us a seam we'll try to get through it. They had a chance to put us away (Saturday) and they didn't. We might have a chance to win it now."

Something tells us the hit parade for Tampa will come to a quick end with ace Cliff Lee on the hill on Tuesday.

Pick: Rangers

Cliff Lee and the UNDER tonight. Then get out the brooms in Philly. There is no way SF even sniffs a win in this series and Wilson wont get a chance to blow a save cos' there wont be any opportunities to save a game. Have to have the lead before you can save it. And speaking of teams w/o a chance in hell of winning everyone needs to look to the number our mentally challenged line makers have put on the 49ers/RAIDERS game. 0-5 SF w/ absolutely no chance of beating anybody the rest of the way this season are 6.5 point favorites over a better Raider team. They have no quarterback, an offensive line that can't block and defense that can't stop the run and has given up on their quarterback, they lead the league in turnovers and their special teams stink. Other than that they're great and THEY ARE FAVORED BY A TOUCHDOWN over a team w/ two wins and who will win this by double digits. Bet as much as you want to win on Big Al's team.

G'Day all.......doesn't get much tougher to pick than this one but I'm going with Texas.......Lee has the self belief of having done it before.......Price must have some niggling doubts after game 1......plus Rays terrible recent form against cackies.......with no great conviction and for a small interest only, for me it's Texas ML @ $1.95........good punting

I like Tampa to win tonight. Here's why. Before game 1, Lee had been 0-3 against the Rays this year. In game 1, the Rays had bases loaded with 1 out when Pena was up to bat. 2-1 count and pitch comes way inside, umpire says it was a foul ball. Should be 3-1 count, ends up being 2-2, and Pena then strikes out for 2nd out. Changed the entire aspect of the game. This will not happen tonight. Rays have opened up extra seats in St. Pete, and the bats of Longoria, Pena, and Crawford are now clicking. Rays win tonight. I like the over also. GOOD LUCK
