MLB Best Bets: World Series Game 3
Adam Ronis analyzes the data to bring you his best bets for Game 3 of the MLB World Series to help you cash those tickets.
The Rays bounced back with a win in Game 2 to even the series at 1-1.
Walker Buehler takes the mound for the Dodgers. In 36.2 innings in the regular season, he had a 3.44 ERA, and 0.95 WHIP with a 28.6 percent strikeout rate and a 7.5 percent walk rate. In the postseason, Buehler has allowed 15 hits and has a 29:11 K: BB ratio with a 1.89 ERA. The control hasn't been as good as he's been dealing with blisters on his pitching hand.
Charlie Morton has been dominant for the Rays. He didn't allow a run in his two starts in the ALCS against the Astros. In 12 career playoff games, Morton is 7-2 with a 2.84 ERA, 1.16 WHIP. The Rays offense has struggled most of the postseason with a .213 average and .703 OPS. Both bullpens are well-rested following a day off and both starters could go six to seven innings.
This should be a great pitching duel, and the Dodgers have the edge for the better offense.
