    Astros tomorrow

    Hit with nats first 2 games but I think this is a good time to jump on Houston.

    Sanchez pitching over his head and will be very hard for the nats to win again without length from their starter.

    Nats lose game 3 and then bounce back in game 4.

    Can't bet either of those pitchers with confidence. Houston bats need to come alive. Betting live might be best option.

    I do. Remember when I said cards and nats futures were sexy as hell at the asb

    I honestly thought Iíd be buying off against Stros but they made price so high and nats so hot I didnít see point.,

    Glad you didn't hedge. Most of the time it's a waste of money hedging.

    Never really planned on hedging, it was either all in against or let ride. Had cardinals made it I woulda had to go alll in against but nats got that feel. Plus line sucked so bad for Houston just wasnít worth it. Books actually made decision easy, lol.

    As for this game it looks like Houston will get it done. The RL was eaten up by early action.

    Why underestimate Greinke in this spot?

    The line opened at -120 stros -100 nats and moved to -155 vs +125.

    I canít decide either and have been on nats and nats futures

    Sports insights - 50/50 split % tickets are on the astros/ nats ml.. and 60% of the tickets being placed on the stros run line

    $ % is also on the stros so far

    Yessir. They arenít going down without a fight. Think they get to Sanchez. He needs weak contact to get outs. Tough team to face for that. Hasnít pitched in two weeks so may not be as sharp, and the Stros can square him up. Just feels like they pull it off to me.

    Greinke pitched okay against the Yanks. He can give up 3 through 5 innings and that could be good enough. Bullpen needs to earn their keep and keep it clean after that. If itís close or tied then the Nats may need to burn Corbin. If they do, then game 4 is winnable too. Will be fun to see how the game is managed. Nats have been able to avoid using weak pen guys this postseason and those they have used have stepped it up. Really just Doolittle and Hudson. Some Rainey in safer spots, and Rodney made one showing. It really has went flawlessly so far. Every guy getting his job done for the most part. Due for a pen blowup.

    The Astros gotta get to the pen early. Make them make the tough choices by the 6th. Hudson and Doolittle are good for the 8th and 9th. Best shot is if they can get Rainey in the game, or force them to put in Corbin. Unless they just get to Sanchez early, and hold the lead from there. I think that has a good shot, and then all the pen stuff doesnít matter.

    Wish I could watch. Should be a good game. I think it will be close, but one of the bats for the Stros comes through in the clutch.

    Agree it's tough to pitch to contact against Houston normally, which is what Sanchez does. That being said Houston isn't hitting right now and greinke is an older pitcher Washington has seen who hasn't been consistent.

    I think Houston makes it interesting but Washington likely pulls away late again.
