Pick Details

(953) Tampa Bay vs. LA Dodgers (954) 8:08 PM | Wed, Oct 21 2020
Sport: MLB | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Win (1000) - Final Score LAD 4 at TB 6
1.5 TB (-153) @ pinnacle

The set-up: I had a play on the Rays in Game 1 on the run line and while that one came up short, I do definitely believe that Tampa offers great value to bounce back in Game 2. Blake Snell has been of the best pitchers in all of MLB over the last two years and I look for the Rays' ace to deliver a solid six or seven innings. The Dodgers are going to have to use their bullpen to get the job done in Game 2. This highly favors Snell and the Rays in this come back spot.

The pick: Including the three games it needed to win in a row over the Braves, LA has now won four straight games. I don't expect the Dodgers to win a fifth here. Look for Tampa's depth and experience in the starting pitching role to be the difference in this one, but just in case, lay the extra juice for the extra 1.5 runs of insurance.

This is a 10* TOP PLAY on the Rays on the RUN LINE.


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.
