In St. Petersburg, after splitting a few games in Florida, the rays will go to Boston to regain control of the ALDS, for which they will have to contact former Tampa Bay captain Nathan Eovaldi.
Eovaldi has a lifetime of 1.63 ERAs in the post-season and the Red Sox 6-1 after the season. The lone defeat was Game 3 of the 2018 World Series, which came out of six games against the Los Angeles Dodgers in a 3-2, 18-game defeat in Boston.
Drew Rasmussen, on the other hand, was one of AL’s most productive starting pitchers since he was rotated in mid-August. He has a 1.42 ERA of 37 innings in the last eight starts, while allowing one home run and two or less in the eight starts.
Rice is backing Rasmussen with a bull that finished third in the ERA this year and has a 3.21 ERA after the All-Star break. The Red Sox bull, by contrast, is 21st in the ERA since the break, at 4.49.
The Rays have included 12-5 in their last 17 games against the Red Sox
after the season and in Rasmussen’s 3-1 game against Boston, the trend will continue in Sunday’s 3rd game.
Game: Rice, -105 money transfers.
