This is a dream match up ... is there a better match up in the game today?  Maybe an argument can be made for DeGrom ... and I'm only not including Verlander for the obvious reason (he's on same team as Cole) ... and Verlander vs Strasburg is a great match up also!

It would take A LOT for me to bet against a well rested Scherzer ... so I'm with BiT that +177 udog is crazy ...

Agree. The odds really should be closer (and I bet they will be by game time).

The All Star game is the biggest single reason why the odds are so lopsided now. If Scherzer wins tonight that will all change.

As a former season ticket holder for both the Nats and Astros, this World Series is a dream matchup for me.  I was planning on sitting back and enjoying the games with no gambling - but I simply cannot believe the odds I see for tomorrow night.  I know Cole is pitching for the Astros, but Scherzer and the Nats are +177 underdogs!  That seems crazy to me.  My money will likely be on the 1.77 to 1 Nationals.  

To me this is the way the WS should be:  The two teams with the best "big 3" pitchers are in the finals.  I can't wait to see the games!

Suddenly all the pressure is on the Dodgers.

Two months ago, I had a similar thing going - 1st in ERA and WHIP, 2nd in K's ... and 9th in wins.  Fortunately the season was long enough that yesterday finally after a long slow climb pulled into 2nd in wins.

In my local league I'm 1st in ERA, WHIP, and Ks.....but only 6th in Wins(4 behind 4th). Has anyone ever been screwed that much in the Wins column before?
