- 03A run scored in the first will double your money
- 04Winning margin - 10x your money
Will hunger beat experience?
The Nationals have never been tested on this level, whereas the 2019 Astros team has essentially an identical core with the 2017 World Series Winning Astros. Jose Altuve, George Springer, Alex Bregman, Carlos Correa, Yuli Gurriel and Josh Reddick have all seen it before.
Inside the grind of a series, experience tends to beat hunger and consistency is the major factor that leads to glory, but in a Game 7, an individual match, hunger is the driver that sets the Nationals up as the favorite on my coupon.
Put it simply, there are more guys in the Nationals team who have never won it and they want it more.
Washington Capitals got their first Stanley Cup in 2018 and the Nationals will get their first MLB title in 2019.
Choose the Over +7.5
So far the six World Series games have been relatively high scoring and the Game 3 was the only one where the teams stayed under +7.5 runs.
This is the fifth World Series Game 7 in this decade: Astros beat Dodgers 5 - 1 in 2017, Cubs won Indians 8 - 7 in 2016, in 2014 Giants beat Royals 3 - 2 and in 2011 Cardinals won the title over Rangers 6 - 2.
Our Prediction is the Over.
A run scored in the first will double your money
Will there be a run scored in the first inning? If you look at the previous six matches, the answer is simple: yes.
Out of the six matches played so far, only Games 3 and 5 saw scoreless first innings.
Winning margin - 10x your money
If you want to have a chance to 10x your money, look at the winning margin bets. The three games that Washington has won so far, they beat Houston by 1, 9 and 5 runs. Washington by 5 runs exactly pays 17 and Washington by exactly 6 runs pays 21 times your money - these bets are risky, but look pretty tasty.
Everything good has to come to an end - we thank all of our MLB loving readers for the 2019 season and we welcome you to join us here for the 2020 spring training in March.
But before that, enjoy the Game 7!
