People may tell you otherwise, but the two strongest teams that the Tampa Bay Rays have faced this postseason, are the New York Yankees in the ALDS and the LA Dodgers in the World Series. Both the Yankees and the Dodgers took Game 1 from Tampa and then in Game 2 went with the unorthodox approach of having a Bullpen game. In both cases, we saw the Rays taking advantage while tying up the series, with both the Dodgers and Yankees regretting that they did not continue with the momentum. Tonight will be a strong pitching matchup between Charlie Morton [O/U 5.5 Strikeouts] of the Rays, taking on Walker Buehler [O/U 6.5 Strikeouts] of the Dodgers. Morton has hit the over on his player prop betting line in 2 of his 3 outings so far this Postseason, recording 6 both times. While on the other side, Buehler has had 4 starts so far in these playoffs, hitting the over on his player prop betting line on 3 occasions. So when Morton and Buehler are on the hill, expect STRIKEOUTS.
The Rays will be the home team tonight and the right-off-the-bat look at Ji-Man Choi [O/U 1.5 Hits + Runs], Choi made his presence known in a Game 2 victory, recording 1 Hit and 2 Runs, hitting the over on his player prop betting line for the second game in a row. Manuel Margot [O/U 1.5 Hits + Runs] also has really been stepping up this World Series, hitting the over on his player prop betting line in both Games 1 and 2. We are still awaiting the arrival of ALCS MVP Randy Arozarena [O/U 1.5 Hits + Runs] in this series. Arozarena played like a true stallion in the ALCS, hitting the over on his player prop betting line in 6 of the 7 games versus Houston. Now in the World Series, Arozarena has hit the under on his player prop betting line in both games, so he is DUE!
The Dodgers should be looking good tonight led by Walker Buehler, but will need their offense to PICK-IT-UP! After a RARE hitless night for Mookie Betts [O/U 1.5 Hits + RBIs], he needs to recover. Betts has hit the over on his player prop betting line in 3 of the last 5 games. Joining Betts in being near-silent in a Game 2 loss, is Cody Bellinger [O/U 1.5 Hits + RBIs] who prior to the last game, hit the over on his player prop betting line in 3 straight games. Corey Seager [O/U 1.5 Hits + Runs], was a bright-spot in a dark game 2 Dodgers lineup, finishing with 2 Hits and 1 Run in a loss while hitting the over on his player prop betting line. Both sides are gearing for a BIG one tonight.
