Washington Nationals vs Houston Astros Prediction & Betting Odds (Game 5) - MLB Preview

The Washington Nationals and Houston Astros meet in Game 5 of the World Series at Nationals Park on Sunday evening.

The Astros drew level in the series at 2-2 on Saturday night, after comprehensively winning 8-1 in Game 4. It’s the first time wild-card qualifiers Washington has lost consecutive games since September 13-14 against the Atlanta Braves. This is now a big test of their character.

Alex Bregman burst into life for Houston with a single in the first innings and a grand slam in the seventh, while rookie pitcher Jose Urquidy outperformed the more illustrious names for the Astros in the earlier games.

After two losses in Houston, the momentum is now clearly back with the Astros and the return of their regular season form is going to be difficult for the Nats to deal with. In addition, Gerrit Cole returns to pitching duty for Houston in Game 5 with something to prove.
