Stephen Nover's Run Line Dominator
(MLB) Tampa Bay vs. LA Dodgers, 10/20/2020 8:09 PM, Score: 3 - 8
Point Spread: 1.50 | -129.00 Tampa Bay (Away)
Bookmaker: PinnacleSports
Result: Loss
Clayton Kershaw is one of the greatest pitchers of his generation - when it comes to the regular season. Kershaw just isn't the same pitcher in the World Series where he's 1-2 with a 5.40 ERA. All together, Kershaw has made 35 postseason appearances and has a losing record with a 4.31 ERA. Kershaw also has been dealing with back problems. 
Kershaw is going to have to deal with the hottest power hitter in the playoffs, Randy Arozarena. He's smacked seven homers in 55 postseason at bats. 
So there's an excellent chance Tampa Bay can keep this game within one run, if not win outright. If given 1 1/2 runs, the Rays would be 11-3 in the playoffs. LA would be 4-5 in its last nine games if minus 1 1/2 runs. 
The teams were idle on Monday. The Rays are 9-2 following an off day.
Tampa Bay is pitching Tyler Glasnow. He's prone to the long ball, but is a huge strikeout pitcher. He struck out 91 batters in 57 1/3 innings during the regular season and has fanned 25 in 19 1/3 postseason innings.
