By way of some insanely terrible Atlanta baserunning, awesome defense (Mookie Betts) and some clutch hitting in the late innings of NLCS Game 7, the Los Angeles Dodgers punched their ticket to the World Series for the third time in the last four seasons. In doing so, Dave Roberts’ squad became only the second team to pull off that feat since 1969! LA also became the first team to battle back from a 3-1 series deficit to win a series since the Chicago Cubs did it back in 2016. The comeback ended up snapping the Cubs 108-year World Series championship drought. Los Angeles will attempt to remain on that same path when it battles a Tampa Bay Rays outfit that found a way to outlast the Houston Astros in the ALCS by winning the seventh and deciding game after nearly blowing a 3-1 series lead itself. The Dodgers are without a doubt the more experienced and talented team in this matchup having qualified for the playoffs each of the last eight seasons, but the title has eluded them each and every time. Regardless, online sportsbooks currently have them installed -210 favorites to finally seal the seal and win the World Series.
