Los Angeles Dodgers
Where do you start with Game Two. It looked like it was going to put the Dodgers in command of the series but the either the Astros came alive or the bullpen fell apart. No matter how you see it the Dodgers lost their advantage.
They turn the ball over to Yu Darvish, the one guy on the staff really familiar with Houston. Yu is also right handed so perhaps he can keep the top of the lineup from doing too much.
The key for Los Angeles is not to get too caught up in what might have been. They just played in an epic game and lost in dramatic fashion and they can’t let it linger.
Houston won that epic contest and as a result comes home with a chance to stay there and win the series. I don’t imagine anyone is predicting that but this is the first game in which they are the favorite.
Lance McCullers is good but there was no question that he is well placed in this third game. He is a few tiers below the aces on this team and he is a much more effective pitcher at home – his ERA is about 2 runs lower.
It was amazing to see Houston find their power stroke late in game two. All season long they have been the highest scoring team in the Majors and late in the game they finally looked like it.

Free Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction:
Both of these starters is capable of shutting down the opposition. Darvish has been good in the playoffs and had success against some of hte key Houston hitters over his career. That is why this is so close to a pick’em.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Houston
I know baseball is not supposed to be an emotional game but I think there could be a hangover effect for this one.
LA almost has to get off to a good start and even though Darvish is known to be sharp early I wonder if they will be able to hold the Astros back and whether the Dodgers manager might get a little gun shy.
