With the way they’re pitching, Walker Buehler and Charlie Morton aren’t exactly in need of an added advantage at the moment. Buehler comes into Game 3 boasting a 1.89 ERA to go along with 13.74 strikeouts per nine this postseason. Morton brings with him a ridiculous 0.57 ERA, having allowed just one earned run in 15.2 playoff innings…

But by the looks of tonight’s forecast in Arlington, they’ll be getting an added edge anyway.

World Series Game 3 Weather Report

Some pretty significant wind is expected to be coming in from left field tonight.

And while a steady 12-to-14 MPH breeze is always worth noting, the specific layout of Globe Life Field makes the fact that it’s coming from left even more significant.

When the roof opens — which isn’t yet a guarantee tonight, though it has for all 12 postseason games thus far — it slides across to the right field side, leaving the left field opening as the most exposed, or vulnerable-to-wind border portion of the ballpark.

The over/under for tonight’s game opened at 8, with standard -110 juice on both sides. It’s now not only dropped to 7.5, but the under is being juiced up to the -115/-120 range, depending on the sportsbook, and this forecast is likely playing a major role in the reason for that move.

At the time of writing, 49% of bettors have taken the under, and they’ve generated 59% of the actual money hitting the total.
