Ricky's 7* play on Over.
Key Angle: It's important to remember that Ricky never makes a bet on any game based on just one angle. In order to make the grade, all his premium picks must meet several important criteria. He doesn't share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant. Here in this game the recent history of these two teams is particularly significant.
- The over is 9-4-1 in the Astros last 14 playoff games.
- The over is 4-1 in the Rays last five games as a favorite.
- The over is 4-1 in the Astros last five games with the total set at 6.5 or lower.
Verdict: Neither of these two pitchers have shut down the opposition recently.
