Why bet on the Texas Rangers?

Before throwing against the Houston Astros in Game 3 of the American League Championship Series, Max Scherzer hadn’t tossed since September 12.

So it made sense that the Stros got to Scherzer early, running Max off the mound after the fourth and after Scherzer gave up 5 earned runs off 5 hits while striking out 4 and allowing a home run.

Scherzer threw slightly better in his next appearance, allowing only 2 earned runs in a Texas 11-4 victory in Game 7. The start in Game 3 and the appearance in Game 7 should set Max up to provide his best performance since the regular season. If he does, Texas will be very difficult to beat.

Why bet on the Arizona Diamondbacks?

After a couple of World Series games, the D’Backs should be 2-0. The Diamondbacks had the lead in Game 1 only to give it up via Adolis Garcia’s walk off home run in the 11th.

Not to be deterred, AZ came back in Game 2 and punished the Rangers in a 9-1 victory. The D’Backs took Jordan Montgomery to task, landing 9 hits and scoring 4 earned runs while not striking out versus Montgomery.

Not only that, but Arizona’s bullpen was on point, and Merrill Kelly pitched 7 innings, which is rare for a Torey Lovullo squad. Arizona found their footing in Game 2.

Rangers vs. Diamondbacks 2023 World Series Game 3 Betting Prediction

The D’Backs may not lose another World Series game. Arizona not only dusted the Texas Rangers 9-1 in Game 2, but they did so via a workmanlike performance.

Kelly went a full 7 innings and Arizona cooled down the Rangers best postseason pitcher. Montgomery had been dominating, but the D’Backs sent the former Yankees starter back 5 years to when he had trouble controlling his throws.

Max Scherzer is a future hall of famer. However, Scherzer has not thrown well for at least 2 months. He only tossed 2.2 innings when giving up 2 runs in his last foray to the mound.

Also, in Brandon Pfaadt’s last couple of starts, he struck out 9 Phillies and then 7 Phillies in a couple of Arizona NLCS victories. Pfaadt has gotten into a groove, which is another reason to back the Diamondbacks to take Game 3.
