2019 MLB World Series: Game 6

Minute Maid Park 

Betting

Give me the Astros moneyline! I don’t care that the value is bad (-175), the Astros are winning the World Series tonight and we can bank on it. I also suspect that we hit the OVER on the total of 7.5 runs (+105).

Projected Lineup

Houston AstrosWashington Nationals
Starting Pitcher: Justin VerlanderStarting Pitcher: Stephen Strasburg
1. George Springer1. Trea Turner
2. Jose Altuve2. Adam Eaton
3. Michael Brantley3. Anthony Rendon
4. Alex Bregman4. Juan Soto
5. Yulieski Gurriel5. Howie Kendrick
6. Yordan Alvarez6. Asdrubal Cabrera
7. Carlos Correa7. Ryan Zimmerman
8. Robinson Chirinos8. Victor Robles
9. Josh Reddick9. Yan Gomes

Since the DH is back, we obviously see some changes to the lineup strategy.

The World Series… so far!

There have been two consistent things about the World Series so far:

  1. The Astros can score a lot of runs.
  2. The road team always wins.

The Nationals have seemed to be playing on their heels as of late and will need to give it their all tonight in order to force a Game 7.

Game 6 Takes

The Astros will win the World Series! Jose Altuve will be named the MVP after he gets a hit off of Scherzer who is making a rare relief appearance late in the game. This game will go down in the history books and should be one that we all tune in for. 

Prediction

Nationals: 4

Astros: 7

Going Yard: Jose Altuve

Conclusion

Do you think the Astros will win the World Series tonight? Will the streak of only the road team winning stay alive? Are we going to get a Game 7? Let me know in the comments below! Also, check out the shop and other content by clicking here.
