World Series Game 5

World Series Game 5 tonight in DC.  Looks like HOU evened up this series and regained home field advantage.  Let’s look at tonight’s game.

HOU WAS 10_27_8:07_PM

WAA Vegas TC Sim EV L S R
HOU 52 0.600 0.615 102 4.00 4.00 3.32
WAS 24 0.417 0.385 92 2.74 3.26 0.32

Vegas and TC Sim almost in complete agreement.  ELO has Houston favored by only 52% which means the WAS line could be another betting opportunity for that system.  Lineup numbers taken from yesterday.  HOU is ahead in L , S , and R.  Washington needs to win tonight or they’re in trouble.

Starters WAA WinPct IP Tier
Gerrit_Cole_HOU 9.64 0.704 212.3 4.00
Max_Scherzer_WAS 6.40 0.667 172.3 3.26

Both top tier pitchers in regular season.  Here are their post season numbers.

Post Season

Rank WAA IP ERA Gs Gr Name_TeamID Pos
XXXXX -0.10 29.0 3.72 5 2 Gerrit_Cole_TOT PITCH
XXXXX -0.34 89.3 3.73 14 6 Max_Scherzer_TOT PITCH

Both hovering around average for post season.  Average post season ERA is much lower than regular season ERA for obvious reasons.  Both ERAs above eerily similar however.

Might update when lineups become available but they shouldn’t be much different than yesterday.
