November begins as the World Series could end Wednesday night from Arizona. Texas now holds a 3-1 series lead as Arizona fell short in their comeback bid late on Tuesday night. Texas now holds their first chance to close out the Diamondbacks. VegasBetting examines Game 5 and doles out some Rangers vs Diamondbacks Best Picks including some thoughts on what may happen.
Who wins Game 5 on Wednesday night? Do we see a championship crowned or does the series go back to Texas?
With how the MLB Postseason has gone, it was only natural that Texas won their sixth straight road game on Tuesday night. That’s correct. Texas won again in Arizona on Tuesday. Now, that is correct. The Rangers jumped out to an early 10-0 lead then held off the Diamondbacks late to come within one game of winning the Fall Classic. Vegas Odds on the World Series nearly got stunned as Arizona got within four runs of Texas late.
This was one of those games that had a little of everything. Texas scored five or more runs in back-to-back innings which never happens in this day and age. Now, the Rangers have won three games in this series in different ways. It poetically describes the season for the American League champions. Texas managed to come up with ways to defeat the Astros and few expected the team to triumph in Houston after going down 3-2.
MLB Playoffs odds know this may be the end, and that end may come Wednesday night.
Arizona and Texas go right back at it in Game 5 of the World Series. Can the Diamondbacks send this back to Arlington or will Texas win baseball’s grandest prize? Hey, anything is possible.
Okay, BetOnline and their top online Sportsbook review flip the numbers ever so slightly and make this almost dead even. Arizona appears to be hovering between EVEN and -110. BetOnline listed them at -104 as of very early Wednesday morning. Arizona aims to keep baseball on television into the weekend. Texas wants this to end as soon as possible.
Rangers vs Diamondbacks Best Bets for Friday get a redo of the Game 1 matchup between Nathan Eovaldi and Zac Gallen. For those who watched Game 1 in its entirety, that was some dramatic contest. Both pitchers got roughed up and then it looked like Arizona might steal the opener. Texas came back and then Adolis Garcia delivered a walkoff home run to send Texas fans home happy.
VegasBetting enjoyed that opening contest throughly and so did the bettors, This set the stage for what has been a series of contrasts. The over has hit in three of the four contests with only Game 3 being a pitchers’ duel as Texas stole back the advantage by a score of 3-1. Now, can Nathan Eovaldi atone for Game 1?
Numbers opened with Arizona as a slight favorite for Game 5. Again, if anyone can end this World Series, it might just be Eovaldi. He carries some amazingly consistent postseason numbers compared to other premiere pitchers. So, will Texas outscore the Diamondbacks on Wednesday night? Yes, there is a chance the runs may flow once again.
Texas and Arizona care little about ratings at this point. Now, this is all about winning and losing. Most people that turned their TV’s off early in Game 4 hurriedly turned them back on late when Arizona rallied to score six runs late. The Diamondbacks had chances to draw even close before the Texas bullpen finally shut the door. Even with a chance for Game 5 to be as dramatic, Texas has the goods to end this series.
Wednesday night expects to see more of the same pleasantly warm weather Phoenix fans are used to. Basically, Arizona should see baseballs fly around often. So, what other ways to go in the Rangers vs Diamondbacks Best Picks? Yes young Zac Gallen starts again for Arizona. He is not expected to go much more than five innings again on Wednesday. Arizona needs their bullpen to come up big.
Some bettors wondered if we get a carbon copy of Game 1 or does Game 5 twist things around some? That is a great question. The one thing the Arizona offense did back in Game 1 was they picked their spots on Eovaldi. The result was that third inning where the Diamondbacks scored three times. Eventually they were able to chase the starter by the fifth. At 5-3, the five inning Over connected and later the game over would as well.
Simply, the series props are way too tilted toward Texas to hold much value right now. Even trying to pick Arizona to win seems like fools’ gold. Okay, Texas lost to St. Louis in the 2011 World Series alter squandering a 3-2 series lead. However, that series headed back to St. Louis for Game 6 and 7. This time, the scene goes back to Texas for those closing games. Arizona to win the series is a whopping +900 if one takes a flier.
So, again, what about the Over? We did not forget. The Over is set at 8.5. Why not move it up to 9.5 at +125 for Wednesday night. Expect at least ten or more runs combined.
Some top online betting sites noticed there are out props too. Take the under on both this night and the Over on Eovaldi strikeouts which is only 4.5.
