Houston Astros vs. Washington Nationals

Over 7.5 Runs

Alex Bregman homered again for Houston on Tuesday, as did Juan Soto for the Nationals. Anthony Rendon drove in five runs for the visitors. Not only are these potent lineups clicking right now, but crazy stuff also almost always takes place in Game 7 situations. It’s probably not going to be a pitchers’ duel, as who knows how Scherzer will feel and Gerrit Cole–who is clearly in a class above Greinke and Verlander–is not starting for Houston. The over is 6-1-1 in the Nationals’ last eight overall. It is also 5-1-1 the Astros’ last seven overall and 8-3-1 in their last 12 at home. Additionally, the over is 5-1-1 in the last seven meetings between the two teams. Take the OVER.
