I'm playing TAMPA on the run-line (+1.5 runs) Down a game, the Rays know they can ill afford to drop another one today. They've been a very resilient team and I expect them to respond with a big effort. Snell is a 27-year old former Cy Young winner with a career 2.88 ERA and 1.20 WHIP in the postseason. This is his chance to shine when his team needs him; his first crack at the World Series, I expect him to give us a big effort. While I do respect Gonsolin, he's coming off a tough NLCS. Its also less intimidating then having to go against Kershaw, a future Hall-Of-Famer, on a mission. Snell's first start of the ALCS resulted in a 2-1 win, one of three 1-run games in that series. Overall, four of Tampa's last nine games have been decided by a single run. Backs to the wall, expect AT LEAST a "run-line cover" in this one.
