This game comes after the only scheduled off day in the first five meetings of this series. This will surely benefit the Rays, which played a few more games over the postseason. Starters appear to be Morton and Buehler here. The Rays have won Morton's last five starts as the RH has not allowed more than three earned runs over his past 11 appearances. Buehler has been just as impressive, but has had limited outings over his last six starts. To win here, you need your starters to go a little further in the game than what the RH has been doing.
Tampa Bay is 5-1 the last six interleague games, 5-2 the last seven interleague games as a 'dog, and 13-5 the last 18 overall as an underdog. I'm staying with Tampa Bay here even if these starters don't go. Take the RAYS. Thank you.
