Unlike in the American League, which saw a bulk of overs in its Championship Series, the National League version has played out in an opposite manner. Pitching has outweighed offense en route to a 3-1-1 record for under bets in the first five games.
Will that same trend continue in this potential series-deciding NLCS Game 6?
Wade Miley is expected to get his fair share of work in this one after uniquely being deployed for only one batter in the last game. Fortunately, I don’t think we have to worry about him coming out after such an abbreviated outing again, which makes this over/under easier to handicap.
