I’m opting for somewhat of a rare MLB multi today, taking both the Dodgers and Rays at generous $3.05 odds.
I think both of these sides are in favourable situations here and will come out absolutely desperate for a win.
The Dodgers appeared to get back on track yesterday, in a game that was probably Atlanta’s best chance of closing out the series.
LA’s strong batting lineup began to find some form and I’d expect them to be dangerous the rest of the way.
Walker Buehler has probably been their best pitcher this season and I think his return gives them a much-needed edge.
Moving on to Tampa Bay, who have somehow lost the last 3 games to find themselves 3-3.
Their stats throughout the season and even this series have been much better than Houston’s, yet they can’t seem to put them away.
They’ve struggled from a hitting perspective in the last few games, something which I’d expect to change here.
Lance McCullers will start at pitcher for Houston and I’d expect a much better showing from the Tampa bats against him.
I also like the matchup for Charlie Morton against Houston’s bats, which should ultimately prove decisive here.
