Over/Under: MyBookie 7.5
In what has been a dramatic series thus far, the Astros and Dodgers are showing why they are indeed the two best teams in all of baseball as it was this time Los Angeles that showed their might with a 3-1 victory in Game 6 on Tuesday night to force what will be a Game 7 clash.
Nothing like it in sports, the Dodgers will experience two firsts on Wednesday; the first ever Game 7 World Series to be held at Dodger Stadium and the first ever baseball game to be
played in November in Los Angeles.
After producing a must-win in Game 6 to get back the momentum heading into Game 7 where they will look to capture their first world championship since 1988 for the city of Los Angeles, the Dodgers are the odds-on favorite to do just that.
For the Astros and their now “underdog” role, if they want to give the city of Houston their first ever World Series title, they will have to do what no American League has done since 1972 and that is win a Game 7 in a National League ballpark. In that time, the AL has gone 0-5 in such Game 7 showdowns.
For the pitching matchup, it will feature a Game 3 rematch between a pair of right-handers; Lance McCullers Jr. (1-0, 5.06 ERA) of the Astros versus Yu Darvish (0-1, 21.60 ERA) of Los Angeles; a game that saw Houston win 5-3.
As per the norm, no additional hype is needed when it comes to a Game 7… it’s simply “win-or-go-home.” For sports betting purposes for our US players, 5Dimes is favoring LA (-142 ML) over HOU with an over/under of 7.5 total game runs scored from MyBookie.
Having played and fought all year to win home-field advantage, it will make the difference in this one as I will favor the Los Angeles Dodgers to win straight-up, but give me the UNDER of 7.5 total game runs scored as my best betting pick for Game 7 of this exciting World Series.
