Rays vs. Dodgers Betting Prediction – World Series Odds & Schedule

Author: americangambler | Last Updated: October 22, 2020

After a much-improved performance in the second segment of the 2020 World Series, the Tampa Bay Rays have a chance to lead for the first time in Game 3 of their clash with the LA Dodgers on Friday.

Rays manager Kevin Cash squeezed the most out of his bullpen just as Brandon Lowe recaptured his rhythm to even things up with a 6-4 win. ESPN’s Jeff Passan teed up what promises to be a fierce Game 3 at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, where all of this season’s series will be played:

Despite losing the most recent clash between these two titanic forces of MLB, the Dodgers remain -165 favorites to restore their lead in Game 3 with Sugarhouse NJ. The Rays, meanwhile, continue to provide value as +140 underdogs, a price that could deceive considering Cash’s improvements to their approach on Wednesday night.

Rays vs. Dodgers Game 3 Prediction: Rays to win 5-3

One major factor that looks to run in Tampa Bay’s favor is the increase in confidence Lowe is bound to enjoy in the wake of hitting two home runs against the best the National League has to offer. ESPN Stats & Info pointed to evidence suggesting the Game 1 winner has an overwhelming history in going on to win the World Series, but the Rays’ response in Game 2 hints at their strong chances of a comeback:

If winner odds aren’t for you, the Rays are also priced at +125 to score more than 3.5 runs at Sugarhouse. The Underdogs also look deceptive at +150 to be the first team to score a run on the night, or +310 to score the first run and win, a bet that would have paid up in Game 2.

The Dodgers are undoubtedly stacked with talent, but the Rays’ depth in talent capable of muting their strengths isn’t to be underestimated as Cash hopes to work more magic in Arlington.
