These 2 starting pitchers are superb power arms. However, Houston has struck out the least of any team in baseball this season. Washington batters have struck out 132 more times than Astros hitters while playing in 1 less game. Gerrit Cole is a terrific 17-2 in his home team starts this year with a 2.38 ERA and 0.76 WHIP. Cole has made 3 postseason starts in 2019 and recorded a microscopic 0.40 ERA during those outings while striking out 32 batters in 22 2/3 innings of work. Furthermore, since the start of last season, Cole has gone a perfect 16-0 in his home team starts when pitching on 5 or 6 days of rest. The Astros outscored their opponents in those 16 games by an enormous 5.8 runs per outing. By the way, Cole will be pitching on 6 days of rest in tonight’s World Series opener. I like the Astros to win this game by 2 or more runs. Bet on the Astros for a 10* Top Play run line wager.
