Thursday’s Selection: Rays -120
This is a great spot to back the Rays with their ace Chris Archer on the mound, especially with the Nationals sending out Doug Fister for his first start off the DL. Fister hasn’t started since giving up 7 runs on 8 hits in just 2 innings back on 5/14. The potential for Fister to struggle in his first start back is just an added bonus, as the real key here is Archer. He’s 5-1 with a 1.32 ERA and 0.805 WHIP over 6 road starts and Tampa Bay is 8-1 in his last 9 road starts dating back to last season against a team with a winning record.
