After splitting the first two games in Los Angeles, the NLDS continues with tonight’s Game 3 between the Dodgers and Nationals.
With Hyun-Jin Ryu taking on Max Scherzer, it’s not surprising to see 60% of bettors taking the under (currently 8), especially considering Games 1 and 2 each finished with exactly six runs.
However, professional bettors have largely ignored the total at this point and have instead gotten down, and gotten down hard, on the moneyline.
