MLB FREE PICK: Take the under. According to latest MLB trends, the under is 3-1-1 in the last five meetings between these two teams in Texas and 5-2 in Price’s last seven starts versus the Rangers. The under is also 11-4-1 in the Rays’ last 16 playoff games, 36-15-2 in their last 53 games following a win and 4-1 in Price’s last five starts when their opponent allows two runs or less in their previous game. Last year when the Rangers hosted the Orioles the final was 5-1, falling under the total of 9 runs. Postseason games typically are low-scoring so look for this game to fall under the total tonight.
