Why Washington Nationals are a good bet at +155?
The Washington Nationals failed to win games 3, 4, and 5. However, there are excuses for all three losses. In Game 5, David Martinez had to go with Joe Ross after expected starter Matt Scherzer developed neck spasms. Ross pitched well, but his mates were no match for Gerrit Cole.
On Tuesday night, Washington’s second ace, Stephen Strasburg, takes the mound. Strasburg handled the Astros in a 12-3 Game 2 victory. With Strasburg on the mound, the Nats have a real shot of taking Game 6.

Why the Houston Astros are a good bet at -185?
Justin Verlander, Tuesday’s starter, and Jose Altuve had a players only meeting after the stunning 3-12 Game 2 loss. Since then, the Houston Astros have played like the best team in Major League Baseball.
There’s no reason to believe that the Astros don’t get it done in Game 6. Justin Verlander desperately wants to put the Game 2 flub behind him. Gerrit Cole did that in Game 5. Verlander will be motivated to make amends in Game 6.

2019 World Series Game 6 Nationals vs Astros Betting Analysis
Most felt that the Astros were done after going 0-2 in this World Series. Houston, and probably anybody who has watched them play this season, knew that wasn’t the case.
The Astros didn’t just beat the Washington Nationals three times in a row. They decimated the Nationals’ confidence. All of a sudden, Washington couldn’t buy a run against a team they had dominated in two straight. All of a sudden, Washington’s pitchers couldn’t get past any batter in Houston’s lineup. It didn’t matter where that batter hit.
Washington does send one of their aces to the mound. But, so does Houston. More importantly, the Astros are seeing the ball so well right now, it would take Sandy Koufax on his best day to keep Houston from hitting the ball and scoring runs. The Houston Astros win the World Series on Tuesday night.
