Before I start, I just want to say my prediction here in the playoffs is Indians v. Dbacks World Series. I am a huge believer on teams who win the World Series are the teams who are hot and I have never seen a team hotter than the Indians right now. As for the Diamondbacks, they are my cinderella team. Played great baseball all year round, arguably the best home team in baseball, and have a great line up from the lead off to the 9 spot. Dodgers looked extremely shaky in the month of September and I cannot say I would put my money on them. However, if they pass the Dbacks, then I can see them going to the World Series. Cubs/Nats, totally different conversation, lets get to game 2.
Robbie Ray will be going against veteran pitcher Rich Hill in game 2 of the NLDS. Was not a big fan of the Dbacks yesterday, because I will always respect Kershaw, but this isn’t about Kershaw anymore. Ray has been absolutely stellar on the road this year. He has gone 8-1 with a 1.86 in 15 games! Honestly, that is just incredible. You go into another team’s ballpark and you control the game? That takes a fucking sack. Not considering aces, Ray is the man you want out there this year when your team is on the road in a crucial game 2 division series game. AND lets also take a look at Rays 2017 stats vs. the Dodgers: 3-0 with a 2.27 ERA. ARE YOU KIDDING!? Only thing that comes close to that is that Ray was 1-0 with a 0.92 ERA at Dodgers stadium this year. Rich Hill, I respect the guy, so I am not going to roast him, which is my style, but not here. I will expose his ass though. Hill went 0-3 with a 5.03 ERA in 4 starts against Arizona this year. The Diamonbacks line up just EATS and they will smack the ball around today to bounce back from a game 1 loss. Listen guys, Dbacks at +130 just looks delicious considering what I just told you. Take my dog, the Dbacks, and watch the Dodgers go downHILL tonight.
My pick: Dbacks +130 ml
