Why bet on the Texas Rangers?

Arizona scored 5 earned runs off 4.5 innings against Eovaldi in Nathan’s first start in the World Series. Texas rallied to get the 6-5 eleven innings victory. But Eovaldi didn’t have a great start.

However, the start was Eovaldi’s first real hiccup during the postseason. Eovaldi has acquired the nickname Big Game Nate for a reason. He knows how to step on the gas in the postseason. Since Eovaldi has gotten a look at the AZ lineup, we should expect him to throw much better in Game 5 than he did in Game 1.

Before the third inning in Game 1, where he allowed 3 Zona scores, Eovaldi had been throwing great. So if he’s consistent, the Rangers will be in a position to win the World Series.

Why bet on the Arizona Diamondbacks?

While Eovaldi has gotten the nickname Big Game Nate, Arizona has acquired the nickname the Answerbacks. The reason is because any time AZ has hit a brick wall this season and into the postseason, they’ve broken right through the wall.

The D’Backs face a massive brick wall in the 2023 World Series. To help them get through the wall, Arizona starts Zac Gallen. The AZ ace gave up 3 earned runs off 5 hits in 5 innings in Game 1.

Like Eovaldi, Gallen should pitch better in Game 5 because he’s gotten a chance to see the Rangers lineup. If Zac steps it up, his mates will be there with run support.

Rangers vs. Diamondbacks 2023 World Series Game 5 Betting Prediction

Both pitchers have something to prove, which means we could see a much lower final score thanTuesday night’s slugfest. A low score favors the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Manager Torey Lovullo used most of his relievers except for his best, Kevin Ginkel. Closer Paul Sewald also didn’t enter the game.

It’s almost as if Lovullo knew he was attempting to win Game 4 but had a plan to get his top three starters back into the World Series if the D’Backs were to lose Game 4.

The gambit could pay off, at least in Game 5, if Gallen can go 5 to 6 without giving up more than 1 or 2 runs, Lovullo can use Ginkel and then set things up for Sewald.

On the other side, Bruce Bochy won’t panic. Bochy knows he’s got Jordan Montgomery ready to start Game 6. Then if it goes to a Game 7, Bochy will start Jon Gray, who threw great versus the D’Backs in Game 3.

Because Bochy won’t sell out his relievers in Game 5, the Diamondbacks should score the win. If things get out of hand early, the Texas manger will save Eovaldi’s arm and the best arms in his bullpen and attempt to beat the D’Backs when the series goes back to Texas.
