Tampa Bay Rays
It took way longer than expected but the Rays finally put away Houston, now they get L.A. in their second World Series appearance.
These were the two best teams during the regular season and now Tampa will be an underdog in a series for the first time.
Lots of questions for Tampa coming into this one. Tops on the list has to be can Randy Arozarena keep his hot hitting going? And if not who is going to step up?
Manuel Margot might be a guy. He has tapped into some power in the playoffs with 5 homers already and he will be pretty familiar with a lot of the Dodgers arms from his time with San Diego.
Ty Glasnow can overpower hitters for sure but he is also super prone to the home run. He has given up two homers in three of his four playoffs starts and L.A. was the top power hitting team in Majors during the season.
The bullpen has been used significantly, and to great effect, but that might be catching up to them. A couple of days may not have been enough but we will see.
Tampa has to get more innings from its starters at this point. If they can the series is definitely winnable. .
Los Angeles Dodgers
L.A. also needed the full seven games to win their series against Atlanta. Coming back from 3-1 was somewhat impressive.
Other players get a lot of attention but I don’t think people realize how good a season Corey Seager had. He led the team in RBIs this season.
The fact that he has been the leading hitter in the playoffs is a nice step forward. On a team full of stars he is performing in biggest moments.
Clayton Kershaw gets the ball for game one. His last start was not his best but he has been good in these playoffs. He has helped them get to this point. He is also the starter most likely to work deeper into the game.
Tampa may have the edge in the bullpen, but L.A. can be pretty good too. Julio Urias especially has become an important piece. Kenley Jansen is the wild card. They need him to nail down the leads he is given.

Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Prediction: Los Angeles.
The Rays are always a tough handicap. You just never know how many innings you are going to get from their starters.
Fading Kershaw is a popular play in the media but you would be 1-2 if you had done that in these playoffs.
On offense, there is no doubt that L.A. has the better lineup. They don’t need to mix and match like Tampa does.
I am going to lean towards that being the difference. Glasnow is going to get taken deep by somebody or struggle with walks.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Over 7.5
Looking for the offense to be the more impactful sides in this one, especially L.A.
7.5 is a low total. I think we can get over that one.
