Toronto Blue Jays vs. Tampa Bay Rays Thursday Free MLB Pick: Both of the starting pitchers for the Tampa Bay Rays and the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday night have struggled all season long. Whichever one can throw a better game on this night will beat the MLB betting lines in this game. Thursday’s first pitch at Tropicana Field starts at 7:10 p.m. ET, and we have our MLB predictions ready for this great AL East encounter.

The Rays and LHP David Price are in a heck of a lot of trouble against seemingly anyone that they run up against at this point. Price allowed nine runs in his last outing, and now, he is going to be pitching once again at home, where he has a 6.16 ERA thus far this season. One might look at Price’s 12-2 record and 2.29 ERA against the Jays in his career and think that Tampa Bay is in for a good game, but we aren’t all that sure that’s the case. Toronto’s big problem has been its offense, which has averaged just 3.86 runs per game this season. However, in their last four games, the Blue Jays have plated 28 runs, and that’s the type of production that is possible in this one. RHP RA Dickey hasn’t pitched well this year either, and he is coming off of a disastrous start as well, but we think there is value on him and his boys from the Great White North in the final game of this four-game series. Blue Jays vs. Rays Free Pick for May 9th: Take the Toronto Blue Jays +140
