Hope I'm wrong but this feels so over.  We've seen this exact game like 6 times this postseason for the Astros.

I believe that’s the guy that has a 6 million bet on the astros winning it. He’s mentioned on VSIn a lot. 
 

My guess is he runs the promo then hedges it with the bet. Probably even has the promo insured. Pretty smart. 

He works some deal out to hedge it.  The markup on this stuff is outrageous so he sells like 70k mattresses and is really only risking like 100k of cost and hedges all his margin.

If it’s high let it fly

low let it go.....kid showing his age in that AB facing a nasty breaking ball pitcher.

Was in Toronto last weekend and this little dude at the hotel bar next to me was freaking out bad on every pitch in the Yanks/Hou game, it was like the 4th inning.

Finally bartender was like you need to calm down a bit jokingly sort of not joking. Turns out the guy is from Houston and his wife bought some $5000 mattress from a store down there and it's free if they win they the WS, if not he's cutting a check for it day after the season is over.

The dude may have just punted his dog across the room.

Yeah, that's Gallery Furniture.  The owner, Mattress Mac is a celeb of sorts down here.  Smart guy and a shrewd businessman.  Gets all the free publicity and hedges his positions.

The script this series would be the Nats (road team) piling on several runs here.

When will we run out of catchy phrases to put on championship t shirts?  Do we have the warriors to thank for this?

We need some controversy.  Maybe another crazy call.  Maybe another ejection.  Maybe somebody actually throws a real baby shark out onto the field.

If anything the mistake was taking him out at all, imo.  Hindsight, I know.

Per the guys on VSIN he actually impacted the odds. Vegas really wants the Nats to win.

Because Cole is the best pitcher he has. I realize he's a starter, but he's also a professional. He can pitch in relief. It will be ok.

They got 6 outs here to pull it off. I am also leary of the Nat’s bullpen. But....it's baseball. Anything is possible.

What is crazy is...if the Astros pull this out....I don’t have a clue other than Altuve and Cole. But the Nat’s....you can make a case for any of those guys (Howie, Strasburg, Soto, Rendon)

Cole has been up and down in the bullpen so many times. It’s all mind games. They never intended to bring him in. Should have just left Greinke in longer

It doesn't matter who the pitcher is when the Astros have games like this.  They've already had this game a couple times in this series against the Nats bullpen and a bunch of times this postseason.  When they're hitting poorly and not driving runners in they haven't turned it around yet, and they're already bleeding runs on the other side as they typically do in these games as well.

Altuve has left like 5 runners on base tonight alone.  He has to get the winning hit himself to be considered.
