Unlike the rest of their rivals in the AL East, the Tampa Bay Rays don't prefer to have the lineup loaded with sluggers. The Rays prefer to build their teams with solid pitching as the foundation and put an emphasis on defence-first baseball. Part of that is because Tampa doesn't have the big budgets others like New York and Boston do to attract sluggers, and that means that the Rays rely heavily on internal scouting and development to build a winner.
The Rays have experienced more consistent success with that methodology since 2008, and at times it can be baffling to bettors. Oddsmakers have to stay sharp as well as they are the ones that have to put out sharp numbers with their Tampa Bay Rays odds.
