Houston Astros vs Washington Nationals prediction
I believe in a game 7 and in these odds i see a must investment and here is why.
Strasburg is totally outpitching Scherzer this postseason and we might see Scherzer in action if the need is high today ( it is a must win game for the Nats after all ).
Strasburg is 4-0 this postseason with a 1.93 ERA. The Interesting part? He pitched even better with a 1.85 xFIP and a slightly worse 1.96 FIP which is negligible of course.
He allowed just two runs in Houston last week.
Verlander on the other side is 1-3 this postseason with a 4.15 ERA and even a worse 4.57 FIP / 4.81 XFIP.
He is 0-5 in the World Series with a 5.73 ERA and he allowed 4 runs against the Nats last week.
Only road wins in this WS and i believe the Nats will continue with that trend.
