ROGERS’ VERY EARLY FAN APPRECIATION BLOWOUT (ONLY $25!)
Tampa Bay vs. Houston,
10/04/2019 14:05 EDT,
Score: 2 - 6
Point Spread: -1½/-108 Houston
The set-up: The Astros have a huge advantage on the mound. Not only in this game, but in this series. The visitors hand the ball to Tyler Glasnow, while the home side counters with ace Justin Verlander.
The pitchers: Glasnow was injured for a big part of this season. He was excellent in September, posting a 1.46 ERA and 21:5 K:BB over 12.1 frames of work. Last year he was 2-7 with a 4.27 ERA.
Verlander (21-6, 2.58 ERA) was 10-4 with a 2.34 ERA at home this season.
The pick: Glasnow is just happy to be here: ''This is everything you dream about,'' he said. ''You're a little kid, you think about playing playoff baseball. Now that it's here, it's pretty amazing.''
I’m laying the price and expecting a decisive victory from start to finish as I believe the Rays have a letdown here after their emotional wildcard victory.
6* BLOWOUT on the Houston Astros.
