Hey guys,
First post here. Been a reader here for awhile. Here's my thought on this game.

Texas Rangers vs. Tampa Bay Rays
No Sweat Rating: 5 - Rays -115
No Sweat Rating: 2 - Over 6.5
Final Score Prediction: Rays 5 - Rangers 3

I usually don't believe in giving Ratings of 5 for baseball games that are do or die games. But this is a great position for the Rays. The Rays came out flat for their first two home games and ended up down 2-0 in the series. Many people wrote the Rays off for games 3 and 4, but as the #1 team in the AL this year (record-wise), they bounced back. Now we are getting Price, a potential AL CY Young winner, at -115 at home? This line looks way too fishy. How is Mr. Reliable, Cliff Lee a dog today after his dominating performance in game one? Simple, if you look at Cliff Lee during the regular season, the Rays had his number. The Rays bats are hot again, and I expect them to manufacture a few runs off Lee. I was never too fond of the Rangers bullpen and I think they are good for another few runs. Put in a bad start from Price for game 1 (who wouldn't have game 1 jitters), and the Rays look like a steal here. I expect Price to come back with complete composure and dominate the Rangers bats who have suddenly gone cold. The Rangers have never won a playoff series in their history and I expect Ron Washington to do a line or two after this game. This game will be sweat free. This is the play of the day. Take the Rays, and possibly the over if you like, and call it a day. I'm quite confident that we are looking at a 2-0 day.

I will say this-if you(or anyone else) were a sports service and touted this game as a GOY or Game of Anything, you(they) would have ZERO credibility in my book win or lose.
Anything can happen is deciding games of any series in any sports, and in this series, it is even more difficult because neither team has won at home yet.

I think you are right with the Rays, but the Rangers pen has been pretty damn good this year.

Exactly Savage. Might be going to another forum where I'm not called a tout on my first play from other posting members.

Goodluck all.

Well that was horrible. Not a good way to start my first post here. Congratulations to all Rangers and under backers. I was definitely on the wrong side on this one.
