The Tampa Bay Rays will be fighting to snap a losing streak on Friday when they take on the Miami Marlins at Tropicana Field.

The Marlins will pin their hopes on the pitching of righthander Carlos Zambrano in this game. Zambrano has a 4-4 record and a 3.55 ERA this season.

Starting this game for the Rays will be Matt Moore. The lefthander has a 4.59 ERA to go along with a 3-5 record this season.

Oddsmakers currently have the Rays listed as 153-moneyline favorites versus the Marlins, while the game’s total is sitting at 8.

Last time out for Miami, they were a 10-2 loser as they battled the Red Sox at home. Moneyline bettors who got the Red Sox at +100 were rewarded, while the 12 combined runs moved the game OVER for totals bettors.

The Rays were a 9-6 loser in their most recent outing at home against the Mets. That made winners of bettors who got New York at +116 on the moneyline, while the total score (15) was good news for OVER bettors.
