There should be no shortage of runs scored in today's game between the Rays and Rangers. Texas will have a rookie on the mound in the first playoff performance of his career. I don't think 22 year old Martin Perez will be pitching his best game with the pressure of playing in a win-or-go-home situation. Perez did not get an opportunity to face the Rays this season, and they are hot right now scoring 5.1 runs per game with a .273 batting average over their past seven games.
David Price will start for Tampa Bay, and the over is 5-1 in his last six starts overall. Price has struggled in the past against the Rangers so I expect to see him give up some early runs before settling in. In head-to-head games between these teams the over is 3-0-1 in the last four meetings. The over is also 15-5-1 in Tampa Bay's last 21 games when listed as a favorite of -110 to -150.
