The Phillies missed an excellent opportunity to go to Houston with a series lead. Although in Game 4 they were victims of the second no-hitter in all of World Series history, in Game 5 they had multiple opportunities to score, failing to take advantage of almost none of them despite a good performance by their pitchers, with the team leaving 18 runners on base after the end of nine innings.
If they continue with this performance, their dreams of another “Fall Classic” title will fade, and they will turn to Zack Wheeler to keep the flame alive. It will be the second appearance of the Philadelphia starter in this World Series, although the previous one did not end well after allowing 6 hits and 4 clean runs in 5.0 innings precisely in this Minute Maid Park .
Starting pitcher: Zack Wheeler (153.0 IP, 12-7, 2.82 ERA, 1.04 WHIP / 1-2, 30.1 IP, 2.67 ERA, 0.73 WHIP in postseason).
Injured players: Corey Knebel (shoulder), Kent Emmanuel (shoulder), Damon Jones (shoulder), Simon Muzziotti (kneecap), James McArthur (elbow).
Betting on the Houston Astros
- Season record: 113-56
- Regular season vs Phillies: 2-1
- Runline of Unibet: +160
- Moneyline of Unibet: +-141
- Over/Under from Unibet (7): -109 / -110
Everything went in favor of the Houston Astros to win in the final game of this series. After a few innings of uncontrolled pitching, Justin Verlander was able to get back on track; the lineup had very timely batting, and the defense executed masterful plays to clear out all the danger that the home team posed. Now, the team is in an unbeatable position to win its second World Series in history.
Starting on the mound for the Astros as they look to end this series will be Framber Valdéz, who will be making his fourth start of the postseason and second in this series. The Dominican pitcher hasn’t allowed more than 2 clean runs in any of his appearances so far in October baseball.
Starting pitcher: Framber Valdez (16-6, 196.1 IP, 2.89 ERA, 1.17 WHIP / 2-0, 19.0 IP, 1.42 ERA, 0.95 WHIP).
Injured players: Michael Brantley (shoulder), Jason Castro (knee), Josh James (forearm).
The Phillies could barely win one of the three games they played at home in this series, and now back at Minute Maid Park, it seems that Philadelphia’s chance to be crowned champions has already gone by: they’ll have to swim uphill if they want to achieve this feat.
The Phillies’ offense has faded as the games have progressed, and facing a Framber Valdéz who has been the Astros’ best pitcher in this series by a wide margin will be a big problem.
If Houston can decipher Wheeler’s pitching as they did the last time they faced him, the situation could get a lot worse for the visiting team, considering that in this series, neither bullpen has yielded, and everything has been determined by the performance of the starters.In our opinion, the Astros are the favorites to finish this series and avoid a seventh and decisive game.
Prediction: Houston Astros Moneyline (PHI 2 – HOU 5)
