The Los Angeles Dodgers are one win away from winning their first World Series since 1988, but don’t count out those pesky Tampa Bay Rays just yet. Even though they dropped Game 5, we saw the kind of crazy finish that these Rays have become synonymous with.

This will mark the third time the Rays have been in an elimination game all postseason. They previously beat the Houston Astros in a Game 7 and the New York Yankees in Game 5 of the ALDS. The Dodgers will need to bring their “A” game if they want to close out the series on Tuesday.

The day off in between Games 5 and 6 gives both teams the opportunity to rest their pitching staff in preparation for Tuesday. After this all-out sprint of an MLB postseason, both teams could use that time to recover.

 

Rays vs. Dodgers Game 6 Odds

 

The Dodgers are currently -140 on the moneyline, but bettors who want to change up the odds can take them as 1.5-point favorites at +145. The total points mark is set to eight. Keep an eye on these odds as game time approaches. We have seen some late movement on lines in the 2020 postseason, but the Dodgers have been heavy favorites for this entire series.

Blake Snell vs. Tony Gonsolin

The Rays are hoping to get some length out of Blake Snell in Game 6. No Rays starter has gone into the sixth inning so far in the World Series. Of course, Tampa Bay’s bullpen is as deep as it gets, but they desperately need Snell to eat up some innings.

In his Game 2 start, Snell went 4.2 innings, allowing two hits and two runs. The former Cy Young winner is the last man standing between the Rays and a disappointing finish to an otherwise fantastic season.

While we know that the Rays are going to try and get Snell to go deep into the game, it’s unclear what Los Angeles will do. Gonsolin started Game 2 opposite of Snell, but Dodgers manager Dave Roberts decided to make it a bullpen game. That decision backfired in a big way and the Dodgers dropped Game 2. Gonsolin’s deepest start in the postseason was Game 2 of the NLCS when he pitched into the fifth inning.

 

Will Corey Seager Stay Hot?

The Dodgers have a few guys who have carried them offensively through this postseason, but no one more so than shortstop Corey Seager. In this World Series alone, Seager has two home runs, four RBIs, and eight hits. He has ridiculous batting splits of .471/.609/.824.

Although he’s as hot as any hitter right now, the left-handed hitter has concerning lifetime splits against lefty pitchers. Seager might be hot enough to overcome this, but facing the lefty Snell will be no easy task.

 

Picks and Prediction

This feels like it’s finally time for the Dodgers. After two World Series losses in the last four years, they are finally ready to get over the hump. So long as Dave Roberts manages his pitching effectively, Los Angeles will close this out in six games. The big favorites will pull it off.

The +145 odds of the run line is tempting, but the risk isn’t worth it in this case. The Rays won’t go down easy and the safe play here is Dodgers on the moneyline.

 

Final Score Prediction: Dodgers win 5-4
