The 2020 MLB Playoffs have advanced to the League Championship Series round. On the American League side of the bracket, the Tampa Bay Rays and Houston Astros will square off with a spot in the World Series on the line. The series gets underway on Sunday, October 11, with first pitch set for 7:30 p.m. ET. The entire series will air on TBS and take place at Petco Park in San Diego.

The Rays will send out Blake Snell in Game 1, while the Astros plans are not quite as clear. Zack Greinke pitched in Game 4 of the ALDS on Thursday, so he probably will not be available. Lance McCullers Jr. or Framber Valdez would be the most likely options to start the series.

DraftKings Sportsbook as installed the Rays as -167 favorites to win the series, while the Astros sit at +135. The series is best-of-seven and right now the book has a six-game series slightly favored at +200 to +210 for a seven-game series.

MLB has not published the full ALCS schedule, but has information on the first two days. All times below are ET. You can stream the games at WatchTBS.
