ATS MLB FREE PICK, TRENDS & ANALYSIS: Go with Under 7 Tampa Bay/Washington. Latest Trends: Rays are 2-7 Under last 9 games as an underdog and is 6-14-1 Under last 21 road games. Washington is 2-6-1 Under last 9 Thursday games and 2-5-2 Under last 9 games following a win. Gio Gonzalez goes for the Nats and he’s been lights out for most of the season and coming off his worst start against the Yankees. Fortunately the Rays do not have the Yankees’ bats. Washington goes up against a strong young lefty in Matt Moore, who has been inconsistent most of the season, but in his last three games, he is 3-0 with a 2.37 ERA and has a 1.11 WHIP.
