MLB line movement

UPDATE 3:15 P.M. ET MONDAY: DraftKings opened Game 6 at Dodgers -155/Rays +130 and moved a few cents in just the past few minutes, to -148/+125. The total is stable at 8.

Clayton Kershaw pitched a solid 5 2/3 innings Sunday night, and Los Angeles earned a 4-2 victory to take a 3-2 lead over Tampa Bay in the best-of-seven World Series. The SuperBook quickly posted the Game 6 line at Dodgers -140/Rays +130, and there was no movement through late Sunday night.

The SuperBook opened the total at 8.5, and the only move Sunday night was a modest price adjustment to Under -115. First pitch is at 8:08 p.m. ET Tuesday.

Odds to win the World Series

Prior to Game 5, The SuperBook had the series price at Dodgers -200/Rays +175. Now, with Los Angeles one step away from the title, it’s up to Dodgers -650/Rays +475.

Behind the counter, SuperBook oddsmakers would much prefer this matchup get to Game 7 and, from there, Tampa Bay to win.

“The Rays are awesome for us,” SuperBook executive director John Murray said prior to Game 1. “We’re a small loser to the Dodgers.”

Game 6 Odds: Rays vs. Dodgers
Tom Wilkinson

After four straight high-scoring games that went over the total to start the World Series, the Los Angeles Dodgers and Tampa Bay Rays played their first game to go under the total on Sunday night.

It didn’t look like Game 5 would go under after their were five runs scored in the first three innings, but both bullpens were spectacular and combined to allow just five baserunners and no earned runs in 7.1 innings of work.

A day off on Monday means that both bullpens should be fully loaded once more for a decisive Game 6 on Tuesday, October 27.

The L.A. Dodgers will start Tony Gonsolin in Game 6 but a committee approach is expected to be used on Tuesday. (AP)

Game 5 Recap

Tyler Glasnow struggled with his control again in Game 5. Glasnow threw 102 pitches in five innings, allowing all of the Dodgers’ runs in a 4-2 loss for the Rays.

The Dodgers only had six hits, but they made them count as Joc Pederson and Max Muncy both hit solo home runs in the win.

Meanwhile, Clayton Kershaw pitched well for the Dodgers. He allowed seven baserunners in 5.2 innings of work, but he only allowed two runs to pick up his second win of the World Series.

After watching the 'over' cash in the first four games of the World Series, we finally saw an 'under' ticket cash in Game 5.

The game was actually on a good pace to lean to the high side as Los Angeles led 4-2 after five innings, but the bullpens showed up late and neither team scored in the final four innings.

The 'over' is 5-0 in first-five inning wagers in the World Series.

Los Angeles did cash on the run-line again, going 3-0 when it wins in the series.

Starting Pitchers

Blake Snell
Tony Gonsolin

Manager Kevin Cash will ask Blake Snell to lead Tampa Bay to a victory in Game 6. Snell was in good form when he started for the Rays in Game 2, striking out nine batters in 4.2 innings of hitless baseball. However, he couldn’t get out of the fifth inning. After putting away the first two batters, Snell went walk, home run, walk, single before being pulled in favor of Nick Anderson.

The fifth inning has been a constant source of disappointment for Snell in the postseason. He has not made it to the sixth inning in any of his last four starts, allowing nine baserunners, six earned runs, and three home runs in the fifth inning. Generally, Snell pitches well until the fifth inning, so Cash might jump the gun and use his starter for four innings before turning to the bullpen for the last five frames.

The Dodgers will match Snell against Tony Gonsolin, just like they did in Game 2.

L.A. manager Dave Roberts used Gonsolin as an opener in that game, but he could go deeper this time around. Gonsolin pitched just 1.1 innings last week before handing the ball off.

That was Gonsolin’s shortest outing of the postseason. He hasn’t looked great though, allowing five earned runs in 4.1 innings against Atlanta in Game 2 of the NLCS and two earned runs in two innings of work in Game 7 of that series. Gonsolin was much better during the regular season, posting a 2.31 ERA and a 0.84 WHIP in 46.2 innings of action.

Game 6 Bullpen Analysis

We didn’t see Nick Anderson or Pete Fairbanks for Tampa Bay in Game 5, so one of those two relievers is likely to be the first out of the pen. Cash told reporters that he planned on being aggressive with his bullpen on Tuesday, and that probably means he will yank Snell if he gets in too much trouble early.

Anderson, Fairbanks, and Diego Castillo might all be used for more than an inning since they are the three best arms, and there is no tomorrow for the Rays if they lose Game 6.

Dustin May might be the only Dodgers’ reliever that will be unavailable in Game 6. May threw 30 pitches in Game 5, so he is likely to get some additional rest along with the day off on Monday.

If the Dodgers have a narrow lead, it will be interesting to see what Roberts decides to do in the final innings. He wants to trust Kenley Jansen, but the long-time reliever has been a mess in his two World Series appearances.

Players to Watch - Rays

If it wasn’t for Randy Arozarena, the Rays never would have reached the World Series. Almost every hitter has struggled on this roster outside of Arozarena.

He has set numerous postseason records, and he just broke another on Sunday with his 27th hit of the 2020 playoffs. The Dodgers have not elected to pitch around him just yet, but he has reached base 10 times and has two home runs in this series.

Will anybody else step up?

Tampa Bay’s entire infield has struggled from the plate.

Brandon Lowe, Willy Adames, and Joey Wendle are all hitting .200 or less than postseason, and all three players don’t have an OPS above .540. That has really limited the Rays’ run production, so at least one player out of this group needs to have a big performance in Game 6.

Players to Watch - Dodgers

Mookie Betts only has five hits in the World Series, but he has made his presence felt. Betts is a constant threat to steal whenever he gets on base, and he has played excellent defense in the outfield.

We have seen him take more walks in the postseason than he did in the regular season too, allowing the Dodgers’ power hitters to have the potential to make an even bigger impact.

Max Muncy doesn’t have the same recognition as other stars on the Dodgers, but he has been fantastic in the World Series. He has reached base a whopping 12 times, drawing a walk in every game. Muncy has made excellent contact, striking out to Tampa Bay pitchers just three times, and he has the same number of walks and K’s this postseason.

The World Series MVP favorite continues to be Corey Seager. Seager mashed once again in Game 5, and he now has eight hits and five walks against the Rays. This has been a breakout postseason for the shortstop, as he never posted a batting average higher than .237 or an OPS above .743 in his previous four postseasons.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are 7-10 in their last 17 World Series games after losing to the Houston Astros four games to three in 2017, to the Boston Red Sox 4-1 in 2018, and now taking a 3-2 series lead over the Tampa Bay Rays in 2020.
The Dodgers can end a World Series drought that dates back to 1988 with a win against the Rays in Game 6 this Tuesday night.

Opening Odds Analysis
The betting lines on Game 6 have remained steady since being posted with the Dodgers going off as -135 favorites, the Rays paying +125 to extend the World Series to a seventh game, and the total at eight runs.
Tampa Bay is 6-4 in its last 10 games as a betting underdog with Blake Snell on the mound.

Starting Pitchers Analysis

Blake Snell walked four batters in Game 2 of the World Series but limited the damage by allowing only two hits and two earned runs while striking out nine in 4.2 innings pitched. Snell has recorded a 3.33 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP across five postseason starts this season and has led the Rays to a 3-2 record over those five starts.

Tony Gonsolin was outstanding during the regular season with a 2.31 ERA and a 0.84 WHIP in 46.2 innings pitched. But through three short appearances in the 2020 postseason, Gonsolin owns a disastrous 9.39 ERA and 1.70 WHIP. Gonsolin was pulled quickly in Game 2 after allowing just one hit and one run after 29 pitches and is likely to have a short leash again in Game 6.

Tampa Bay News & Notes

For the second time in this World Series, the Rays offense had no answer for Clayton Kershaw in Game 5. Kershaw breezed through 5.2 strong innings and allowed only two runs before handing the ball over to the bullpen, who held on for a 4-2 Dodgers win. With the loss, the Rays fell to 3-6 over their last nine postseason games and failed to score more than three runs for the third time in this series.

The Rays have been forced to the brink of elimination in each of their last two postseason series and have risen to the challenge. With Blake Snell on the mound against a struggling Tony Gonsolin, Tampa Bay should feel confident in its chances of forcing a Game 7.

Los Angeles News & Notes

After suffering through a bullpen collapse that cost the Dodgers in Game 4, Dustin May, Victor Gonzalez, and Blake Treinen combined to allow only two hits and one walk over the final 3.1 innings of Game 5 to preserve the team’s 4-2 lead. Los Angeles got home runs from Joc Pederson and Max Muncy in the win.

Every move that Manager Dave Roberts makes in the postseason is heavily scrutinized by the media and Dodgers fans around the country. How he handles Tony Gonsolin and the bullpen in Game 6 could be the key to winning both this game and the series. But if Los Angeles can produce a big day on offense, it could take a lot of pressure off of its skipper on these late-game decisions.

The OVER is 4-1 through the first five games of the World Series. Snell’s control issues this postseason could catch up to him against a team that hits as well as the Dodgers, and Gonsolin hasn’t done much to impress of late

Tampa Bay is 20-10 over its last 30 games.
Los Angeles is 15-5 over its last 20 games.
The OVER is 5-2 in Tampa Bay’s last 7 games.

One for All, or All For Nothing

The biggest question with a Game 6 in baseball is always the managers.
The way they handle their pitchers in this contest determines not only who wins this game but how a seventh game might go if the trailing team manages to come up with a win.
Tampa Bay goes into this knowing it must win twice, so there’s a lot of strategy on the board in how Kevin Cash chooses to handle Snell.

On the one hand, the Rays never once let Snell pitch past the sixth inning, no matter how well he was pitching.
Even with a four-run lead in a September game against Boston, Cash yanked Snell as soon as a man got into scoring position in the sixth in a game Tampa Bay won 11-1.
On the other, this is Snell’s final appearance of 2020.
There’s no saving him for tomorrow night because the only way he’d be in any shape to pitch is if he got shelled in the first inning, and if that happens, Tampa Bay won’t be playing a seventh game anyway.
So there’s no worry about Snell overexerting himself if he pitches past the fifth, and that means Cash could have an interesting decision on his hands.
The Rays don’t want Snell facing hitters more than twice, but they’ve also got to make sure they leave themselves enough bullpen arms to give themselves a chance in a seventh game.

Go For the Jugular?

The Dodgers’ situation is, of course, different.
Dave Roberts has the luxury of knowing his team can come back and try again on Wednesday if they fail on Tuesday, so his big concern will be how aggressive he tries to be with his big guns.
Ideally, he would get five innings out of Gonsolin and then hand the game over to his bullpen, but that’s not really realistic given that Gonsolin has gotten rocked in all of his postseason starts.

Instead, Roberts will likely be faced with the decision of which bullpen arms to trust and whether to go back on his plan to keep Walker Buehler and Julio Urias out of Game 6.
Roberts said on Monday that both pitchers are unavailable for Game 6, as is Game 5 starter Clayton Kershaw, but if the Dodgers find themselves three outs from the World Series, Roberts might be tempted to bypass Kenley Jansen and bring Urias in to try to end it then and there. But all of that depends on whether Gonsolin can pitch better than he has all postseason — or whether the Dodgers can get to Snell.

Being Selective

There’s no secret here: The Rays have to work counts against Gonsolin and the Dodgers’ bullpen if they’re going to survive to reach a Game 7.
It’s not a coincidence that the one game in this series that Tampa Bay controlled from start to finish was the game where the Rays only struck out seven times out of 27 outs.
When the Rays put the ball in play against the Dodgers, as they did at the end of Game 4, good things tend to happen.

The problem is that Tampa Bay spent the entire season as a free-swinging team, and that’s been to its detriment at times against the Dodgers.
The Rays have to make sure they’re both selective and putting the ball in play against this assortment of Dodger pitchers.
If the Rays can force the Dodgers to make plays, there’s always the chance that someone makes a mistake, such as the play at the plate that gave the Rays life in this series.

Weather Report

The roof is likely to be closed on Tuesday night in Texas, as forecasts call for temperatures of 44 degrees and a possibility of rain in the Metroplex.
If the roof is open, the wind will blow 10 miles an hour to the north, down the right-field line.
