When considering how you should live bet on a baseball game, you should first predict how you see the game playing out in advance. And while it is impossible to script out a baseball game, there are stats, trends and other data points (i.e. managerial tendencies) that can help you identify a +EV betting opportunity in-game.

On Wednesday, Max Scherzer faces Zack Greinke in Game 7 of the World Series, after Scherzer was scratched from Game 5.

The Nats will likely use Patrick Corbin, and potentially even Stephen Strasburg (on zero rest) behind Scherzer in this winner-take-all game – while the Astros may deploy Gerrit Cole after his dominant Game 5 performance.

With so much uncertainty going into Game 7, what live-betting opportunities should you look out for in the final game of the 2019 MLB season?
