Betting picks for Game 7 of the ALCS
Somehow, the Astros have forced a game seven tonight vs the Rays. With their backs against the wall in game 6, HOU became only the second team in MLB history to force a game 7 down 3-0. After a stellar performance by Framber Valdez last night, Lance McCullers Jr takes the mound tonight for Houston while the Rays will start Charlie Morton.
Michelle’s Moneyline Pick: HOU vs TB ALCS Game 7
First pitch is 8:37 on PM on FS1
Everyone knows I am an Astros die-hard, and I don’t really care what you think about them and the scandal. I know this team very well and can see that they are hot at the right time. The momentum from the last 3 games alone might be too much for the Rays. Plus, McCullers getting the start is a great thing for the Astros.
Yes, his last appearance in this series was a 4-2 loss in game 2. but McCullers was better than the outcome of the game Through seven innings pitched in a losing effort, he struck out 11 with 1 earned run.
Both of these guys have game 7 experience. In fact, Morton and McCullers were part of a pitching platoon that won game 7 for the Astros in the 2017 World Series. But, McCullers has more overall playoff experience, a relentless mindset and a peaking offense to back him up.
The Pick: Call me what you want, I’m taking the Astros moneyline in game 7. That’s +102 at DraftKings and all the top Props Network Sportsbooks.
Top Player Prop Bet:
I’m sticking with the theme of Lance McCullers for my top player prop bet. He throws absolute filth and is the type of player you want to be investing-in for a winner-takes-all game seven. I’ll take the OVER 5.5 strikeouts for the Astros starter tonight. It’s a -121 payout at UniBet NJ and UniBet PA, which is a much better value than all other online sportsbooks. The price on this prop is trending around -140 everywhere else.
