MLB Odds: Weary Dodgers Return Home for Game 6. After five hours of baseball insanity, the Los Angeles Dodgers are heading home down 3-2 in the 2017 World Series. The Houston Astros delivered the final blow in Sunday night’s 13-12 extra-innings victory, cashing in as +110 at Bovada road dogs on the MLB lines and setting up Game 6 at Chavez Ravine tonight. FOX has the coverage beginning at 8:20 PM ET.
Houston will send Justin Verlander (3.84 FIP) to the mound on Tuesday, as they try to nail down the first World Series championship in franchise history. The Dodgers hit two home runs off Verlander in Game 2, but the Astros came back to win 7-6 as –122 road favorites, also in extra innings. That put Houston’s overall record behind Verlander at a perfect 9-0 for nine betting units in earnings.
Rich Hill (3.72 FIP) will get the nod for Los Angeles after pitching reasonably well in Game 2, giving up just one earned run in four innings before getting the quick hook. Hill only threw 60 pitches in that game, and the Dodgers might need to stretch him a lot further Tuesday night after using up nearly their entire bullpen in Game 5.
