Stephen Nover's Astros-Rays Game 7 Top Ticket
(MLB) Houston vs. Tampa Bay, 10/17/2020 8:37 PM, Score: 2 - 4
Money Line: -116.00 Tampa Bay (Home)
Bookmaker: PinnacleSports
Result: Win
Hated or not, the Astros have done a great job winning three in a row to force a Game 7 in this ALCS. But I want the Rays going for me in this winner-take-all matchup.
Tampa Bay has the much deeper bullpen, is the better fielding team and Kevin Cash is a superior manager to Dusty Baker. 
I also prefer Charlie Morton over Lance McCullers in the starting pitching matchup. 
Morton has given up 3 or fewer runs in each of his last five starts. He is 2-0 with a 0.90 ERA in the postseason this year. He beat the Astros in Game 2 firing five scoreless innings. Morton is 6-2 with a 3.16 ERA in 11 playoff appearances that includes 10 starts.
McCullers is a feast-or-famine type pitcher. He's allowed five homers during his last two starts spanning 11 innings. 
The last four innings could be taken over by the bullpens. The Rays hold a big edge there especially with Houston's top bullpen guys dealing with fatigue issues.
