WSH -115 O/U 8.5
The Houston Astros are set to visit Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. for Game 4 of the World Series as they will face the Washington Nationals. The Houston Astros come into this matchup with a 1-2 record in this series, and they will be looking to continue their success after winning their recent road game against the Washington Nationals, 4-1. Zack Greinke received the starting nod for the Houston Astros, and he had success as he gave up 1 earned run in 4.2 innings. Michael Brantley had a solid game from the plate for the Astros as he went 2 for 4 with 2 RBIs.
The Houston Astros are set to start Jose Urquidy (0-0, 2.08 ERA) who had success in his latest appearance as he gave up 1 earned run in 2.2 innings against the New York Yankees. Jose Urquidy struggled in his 4 road starts this season as he posted a 4.12 ERA.
The Washington Nationals come into this matchup with a 2-1 record in this series, and they will be looking to rebound after dropping their recent home game against the Houston Astros, 4-1. Anibal Sanchez received the starting nod for the Washington Nationals, and he struggled as he gave up 4 earned runs in 5.1 innings. Victor Robles was responsible for the lone score of the game for the Washington Nationals as he hit an RBI triple.
The Washington Nationals are set to start Patrick Corbin (1-2, 6.91 ERA) who struggled in his latest start as he gave up 4 earned runs in 5 innings against the Saint Louis Cardinals. Patrick Corbin had success in his 16 home starts this season as he went 8-2 with a 2.40 ERA.
The Washington Nationals hit a roadblock in Game 3 as they let the Houston Astros dominate them in all facets of the game, but they still have the opportunity to take advantage of playing at home with a win here. The Nationals will have the pitching advantage in this matchup as the strong left-handed starter Patrick Corbin will be getting the start while Houston is throwing a rookie who only has 7 career starts under his belt. The Nationals have been good at the plate against guys like Cole and Verlander, and I expect them to work Urquidy with long counts and force him into a few mistakes. Take the Nationals at home.
