Last night, the Nationals took a 1-0 lead in the World Series with a big win over the Astros. We had the winning tip of over at SportsBettingTips.org and are back for game two. The total on that game was set at just 6.5 and both offenses really showed up to put us over that number.
Tonight, Justin Verlander leads the Astros against Stephen Strasburg and the Nationals. This is another amazing pitching match-up as these two are like a mirror image of one another. Verlander had a 2.58 ERA/3.27 FIP/3.18 xFIP on the season while Strasburg had a 3.32 ERA/3.25 FIP/3.17 xFIP.
Despite that closeness of the talent level of the two pitchers, the Astros are a -175 favorite here with a total of just 7.

Washington Nationals vs. Houston Astros Betting Tips:
This line is once again skewed towards the Astros and the Bet MLB System sees them as a favorite once again. Not quite enough to have value as this Nationals team is just good enough to cause question marks.
The pick here, once again, is the over. The total is set very low based on the two starters, but those starters aren’t likely to make it too deep in this game. Both of these teams proved they are good at working the count and getting the pitch totals high.
The big question for the Nationals are what they are going to do when Strasburg doesn’t make it deep. Last night they had to use Patrick Corbin who was the presumptive game three starter as there are basically two relievers that manager Dave Martinez trusts in this bullpen. The Nationals held on by a thread last night as their bullpen got the lead down to 5-4 by the end, but managed to hold on.
I am not sure they will have that same luck tonight. This feels like another slam dunk over to the Bet MLB System. The Astros offense is too good to keep down and the Nationals are scrappy as they come.
