Wow what an absolute classic game 5 of the World Series. The Astros won via a walk-off in the 10th inning in a 13-12 scoreline. They now lead the series 3-2 and can claim the World Series on Wednesday. Game 5 was tied for the second highest scoring game in World Series history. The Wolf picked the over total runs at 7 which easily saluted in the 4th inning (He also backed Springer to hit a homer). In fact both teams almost doubled that total themselves. So the Wolf is back for more in game 6 and he can’t wait for this one.
Houston Astros at Los Angeles Dodgers (11:00am)
In game 6, it will be Justin Verlander for the Astros against Rich Hill from the Dodgers. Verlander has the chance to win his first World Series and the Astros first in history. But in game 2 of this series, he couldn’t contain the Dodgers lineup after the 4th inning as they scored 3 runs from 2 home runs. Still Verlander pitched 6 innings, struck out 5 and allowed 2 hits over 79 pitches. This game is the major reason why the Astros traded for him mid-season and he’ll be fired up on the mound. The Astros also haven’t lost in his 10 appearances at the team and they’re 5-0 on the road in those games. They won game 2 in another epic encounter 7-6 so the Wolf is expecting another thriller in game 6. Rich Hill also pitched in game 2 and went 4 innings as the Dodgers went down by a run. He allowed just 3 hits and had 7 strikeouts over 60 pitches. The concern for the Dodgers is Hill hasn’t pitched past 5 innings in 3 starts this postseason. In game 5, the bullpen struggled to contain the lead and the Astros continued to get on base in key situations. In game 2, they had a 3-1 lead but again the bullpen continued to keep the Astros in the game. But the Astros are also having problems in the pen. Ken Giles had the night off in game 5 and he’s struggled throughout this series. On Monday, Chris Devenski earned 3 runs in 1.1 innings and blew the save. Luckily the Astros walked off but the Wolf is concerned about both bullpens. So after a huge total of 25 runs in game 5, the Wolf is back on the over total runs in game 6. This World Series has already tied the record for the most home runs and the long ball has been the trend in the postseason. In the home run markets for game 6, there is a lot of players to choose from. George Springer has three home runs in the World Series and has hit one in back to back games. So he would be the best best. Jose Altuve also homered in game 5 and he homered in the last game at Dodger Stadium. Carlos Correa has also achieved the same feat. For the Dodgers, Joc Pederson has had a hit in all four games he’s played in so far this series and he’s homered in 50% of them. So he’s the best bet at the Dodgers. In the head to head markets, it’s a tough bet but if the Wolf was going to pick a team it would be the Dodgers at home. They’re a fighting team and with the series on the line, the Wolf would back them to take this series into a decider.
