I'm playing on LA. I know it makes for a better story for Tampa to win this game. That would set up an epic Game 7 showdown between Buehler and Morton. Its not happening though. Not in my opinion. Yes, I did successfully back the Rays in the previous Snell/Gonsolin matchup. Yes, Snell outpitched and outlasted Gonsolin in that one. The second part of that sentence, the 'outlasted' part, actually works against Snell here though. The Dodger hitters, who are better than the Tampa hitters to begin with, got a longer look at Snell than the Tampa hitters got at Gonsolin. Eventually, they started to really like what they saw, too. Snell cruised through the first 4 2/3 innings. However, these LA hitters are really good and once they started becoming familiar with him, they started hitting him. Snell would allow four straight batters to reach base before getting the hook. Now, seeing him for the second time in less than a week, the Dodgers figure to be more 'dialed in' right from the first time through the lineup. Remember, Gonsolin actually had better numbers than Snell, during the reg. season. The Dodgers have faith him in for a reason. Sure, its a nice luxury to know you've got Buehler ready to go for Game 7. The Dodgers don't want to go there though. They want to end this right here, right now. They're 41-19 their last 60, when playing with a day off in between games. The drought is over, Dodger fans. LA wins. 


What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
