At 8:05 pm, our selection is on the Los Angeles Dodgers over the Tampa Bay Rays.  The World Series is set as the Rays and Dodgers prepare to face for their first-ever post-season clash.  This finals will look more like traditional seven-game series than the Championship Series did as it will follow a 2-3-2 format with one-day breaks after Games 2 and 5.  Game 1 will start with RH Tyler Glasnow opposite LH Clayton Kershaw.  After a very strong regular season, Glasnow has struggled a bit in the playoffs.  Over four starts, Glasnow has a winning record at 2-1, but his ERA is a bit ugly at 4.66.  In 13 1/3 innings, he's allowed 11 hits and seven walks, for a WHIP of 1.35.  And Glasnow will have his hands full with a very good Dodgers line-up.  This will be his first-ever start vs. L.A.  However, in three previous relief appearances vs. the Dodgers, Glasnow has allowed six runs in four innings with five hits and four walks -- a 13.50 ERA and 2.25 WHIP.  Meanwhile, Kershaw has started twice against the Rays in his career, and won each start (1.88 career ERA; 0.83 WHIP).  Last season, he struck out eight Rays over 6 1-3 innings, and allowed just seven baserunners and two runs.  The Dodgers are 121-46 (+28 games on the moneyline) as a favorite priced -150 (or higher).  And Tampa is a pedestrian 11-10 this season (minus 5 games on the moneyline) vs. lefty starters.  Take L.A.  As always, good luck...Al McMordie.
