The Nats come into this game razor sharp, winners of six straight but have had an extended rest period after wrapping up their series with Cards back on the 15th. Houston needed six games to get past the Yankees and will have had only a couple of rest days before Tuesday night’s Game. Dan digs into the angles and trends and gives out his suggested wager.
This looks like a no-brainer with Justin Verlander going for the Astros and a struggling James Paxton getting the ball for the Yanks. Keep in mind though that Verlander got tagged for four runs in 3 2/3 innings against the Rays in the ALDS on the short rest and will be in the same situation tonight. Get Dan’s thoughts and suggested bet.
This game might be the hardest to predict in the series because nobody knows if there’s going to be a game at all. Massive storms remain in the forecast for New York on Wednesday, and the rain isn’t supposed to let up until around 2 a.m. on Thursday.
The Cardinals send out Dakota Hudson to try to avoid the sweep while the Nats counter with lefty Corbin. Both pitchers have strong back numbers against their opponent’s line-ups, but Hudson has the better stats this season. Is St. Louis the logical pick at plus odds?
The ALCS switches venues to Yankee Stadium after these two clubs split two games at Minute Maid Stadium in Houston. The Astros go with Gerrit Cole in Game 3 while the Luis Severino gets the start for New York. Read on to get our MLB prognosticator’s suggested bet.
The runs have been scarce in the NLCS with the highest total coming in Game 2 when the two teams combined for four runs. It’s been that way all season when the Cards and Nats have met with seven UNDERS and one push in the last eight games. Read on to see what MLB prognosticator Zank is playing.
Justin Verlander has been nothing short of fantastic in the postseason as long as he’s been pitching on normal rest. Now he’s back on his normal rest; he’s been the biggest Yankee killer there is in the playoffs.
