Odds: Astros -136 / Rays +117
Astros: It’s pretty simple: they want to win their second World Series in the last three years. They’ll have a real chance. Justin Verlander is on the bump, and he’s been one of the best pitchers in baseball since coming over to Houston late in 2017. The Astros recently signed him to a two-year extension that will keep him around through the 2021 season. This will mark the Houston debut for Michael Brantley, the club’s biggest free-agent addition.
Rays: They are hopeful to make the postseason for the first time since Andrew Friedman and Joe Maddon left. Blake Snell, last year’s Cy Young Award winner, is a big reason why. He’s coming off a tremendous season and figures to have a legitimate opportunity at winning another.
The Astros are the better team on paper. We’ll give them the nod as a result.
Pick: Astros -136
