  • Game 6 of the 2020 World Series goes down Tuesday night with the Los Angeles Dodgers as -135 favorites to win the Championship.
  • In order to do so, they will have to go through Blake Snell of the Tampa Bay Rays, who makes his return to the mound after a win in Game 2.
  • The Dodgers will look to Tony Gonsolin to get the start in what will likely be a bullpen game for manager Dave Roberts.

ARLINGTON, Texas – The Tampa Bay Rays are officially on the ropes. Heading into Game 6 of the World Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Rays find themselves just one loss away from the end of their dream run to the Fall Classic.

On the other side, manager Dave Roberts and his Dodgers are just one game away from capturing the championship that has eluded them for so many years now.

It will all come down to the action on the field Tuesday night, where both teams will pull out all of the stops to try and capture the biggest prize in the world of baseball. The focus will once again be on the pitchers for Game 6, with the Rays going with former Cy Young winner Blake Snell against a presumptuous bullpen game for the Dodgers.

Los Angeles will start with Tony Gonsolin on the mound, and gets the edge to win via the major online sportsbooks.

World Series Game 6 – LAD Leads 3-2 – 8:08 p.m. EST

  • Tampa Bay Rays +113
  • Los Angeles Dodgers -133
  • O/U: 8.0

If the Dodgers want to end this series Tuesday, they will have to go through Snell, who is more than ready to be the guy his team leans in on this high-pressure situation.

“I’m pretty excited,” said Snell. “It’s going to be a game that we have to win. I’m excited that I’m in a position that I can pitch Game 6. … That’s a tough team over there, and we’re gonna have to keep playing really, really good baseball.”

Snell currently owns a 3.33 ERA and a 2-2 record through five postseason starts this season, including a win in Game 2 of this World Series. Snell had a no-hitter through the fifth inning with nine strikeouts before escaping with just two earned runs on the day.

For the Dodgers, they will go with a group effort in Game 6, a strategy that had previously run into some trouble in this series as well as in the NLCS against the Atlanta Braves.

They will begin things with Tony Gonsolin, but will surprise no one if they have additional arms warming up in the pen as early as the first inning.

Even without the presence of a true starting pitcher, MLB bookies still gave the Dodgers the edge in this game. Taking the plus money on Snell is not a bad idea, but bettors should know that LA dominates the overall odds to win the title.

World Series Winner

  • Tampa Bay Rays +375
  • Los Angeles Dodgers -500

If the Rays are able to steal a win Tuesday, then those odds will plummet. While Los Angeles has all the big-name stars, now might be the time to lock in a bet on the small market Rays to pull off the upset over the Hollywood Dodgers.
