At 8:05 pm, our selection is on the Los Angeles Dodgers and Tampa Bay Rays 'under' the total.  When looking at who has the upper hand in the starting pitching match-up tonight, we're probably splitting hairs.  The Dodgers' Walker Buehler has a 1.89 ERA in four playoff starts covering 19 innings while the Rays' Charlie Morton has an even more ridiculous 0.57 ERA in his three post-season starts so far (one against the Yankees and two vs. the Astros).  Now put these two together on the same night in a pitchers' park such as Globe Life Field and the runs could truly be scarce.  There have been a lot of interesting stats in this postseason, but perhaps none more mind-boggling than the fact that the Rays are in this World Series despite only batting .213 as a team in 16 playoff games.  But when you look at the number of their games that have gone under the total, those numbers start to make more sense.  In Tampa's last six games following a victory, the under is 5-1 and in its last seven vs. a RH starter, the under is 6-1.  Meanwhile, the Dodgers have gone 'under' in nine of Buehler's last 10 starts, while 15 of Morton's last 19 starts (including the last five in a row) have gone 'under.'  This will be a low-scoring contest.  Take the 'under.'  As always, good luck...Al McMordie
