Just like a told JMad last night, I never root against the Nationals and that's what this bet would be, me rooting against them.
I am betting that 5 runs won't be enough for the Nats to win. If they hold the Cubs to 1 run or less for the next 3 innings you win the bet and I lose.
You're both chickencraps. Bet win or lose. That's all that matters.
Have you not watched this team all season? How can you not expect them to lose this game? Why is this even debatable?
We've won about 1 in 3 on the season, and almost every second game since the break. What part of "significantly better than zero odds" do you not understand?
