the heavily-favoured Astros. This Thursday, everything will be on the line for both clubs in a win-or-go-home game from Minute Maid Park. Bet on baseball at Bodog and get a free 100% bonus. The Astros had two aces in the hole heading into Game 4, as Justin Verlander and Gerrit Cole were ready, if needed, to clinch the series. Verlander faltered in a rare poor performance in Game 4, as he was tagged for seven hits and four earned runs over just 3.2 innings. Houston will turn to their second and final ‘Ace’ for Game 5. Cole has one dominant performance under his belt this series, when he pitched 7.2 innings and struck out a team record 15 en route to a Game 2 victory. The Rays will turn to Tyler Glasnow in Game 5. Glasnow was stellar down the stretch for the Rays, finishing with an impressive 1.78 ERA and a 6-1 record. He struggled in Game 1 against Houston, though, pitching just 4.1 innings and giving up four hits and three walks. The pressure is all on Houston to win, so tune in for the 7:07 PM ET first pitch to catch this thrilling conclusion. Get your MLB odds at Bodog today. Elimination Game in ALDS
