The Dodgers have one hand on the World Series title, and you have to wonder if the roles would be reversed had Manuel Margot successfully stolen home or if he didn’t even do it in the first place. But, alas, we can’t go back and we focus on game six and while the Dodgers closing out the series is a possible ending, I see this series going seven games. Blake Snell’s been the stopper for the Rays’ rotation and the Rays have typically bounced back well from losses all season long and multiple times as well in the postseason. This is a scrappy team that you can bet will not go down without a fight. Tony Gonsolin is expected to start here and he has not been good for the Dodgers this postseason and he’s expected to turn it over to the bullpen as the game goes on and it’s no secret that L.A.’s bullpen has been shaky for a while now. I think the Rays get to business here and pick up a win behind Snell and force a game seven, so I’ll side with Tampa Bay and the plus money as my premium pick for this game.
