Philadelphia Phillies DFS SPIN
J.T. Realmuto delivered a two-run double in the fifth and a go-ahead homer in the 10th as the Phillies edged the Astros 6-5 in the first game of the World Series. Realmuto was responsible for the only runs that came after the fourth inning tonight. His fifth-inning double completed a five-run comeback against Justin Verlander, and his opposite-field homer in the 10th was the only run charged to either team's bullpen in 10 2/3 innings of relief work. The Astros tried to come back in the bottom of the 10th, getting the tying run to third base against David Robertson, but Aledmys Díaz grounded out to end it. Game 2 of the World Series will be played Saturday night in Houston. Zack Wheeler and Framber Valdez are slated to start.
Houston Astros DFS SPIN
Kyle Tucker went 3-for-5 with two homers and four RBI in a losing cause Friday in Game 1 against the Phillies. Tucker became the first player this year to hit multiple homers off Aaron Nola, going deep in both the second and third innings as the Astros built a 5-0 lead. He has three homers this October and eight total in 155 career postseason at-bats.

Phillies vs. Astros MLB WORLD SERIES BETTING PREDICTION
Despite collapsing last night, Houston isn’t going to panic. The Astros are still 7-1 in their last eight playoff games, are 6-1 in their last seven games versus a right-handed starter and have won four out of their last five games at Minute Maid Park. Perhaps most importantly, they’re 46-19 in their last 65 games coming off a loss and are 40-17 in their last 57 games when their opponent scored five runs or more in its previous game. I know the temptation will be to hop on a red-hot Philadelphia team, but let’s keep in mind why Houston was a sizable favorite coming into the Fall Classic.
