Last night, the Philadelphia Phillies beat Game 5 of the Fall Classic, falling 3-2 in the series. It was a better display of their efforts in the previous game that saw Rob Thomson’s team fail to hit a target, it was only the second time in World Series history that anyone had participated. hit the target. However, that has no larger ramifications than we might initially realize.

You see, in order to attract more people to use their app, popular online betting site DraftKings has come up with an interesting double before Game 4 – a chance to place an over/under bet on a total of 76ers ‘3’-pointers plus total hits of the Phillies. … I’m sure you can see this happening.

The Sixers, who so far this season are averaging 13.8 3-pointers per game, joined the Washington Wizards that night. Philadelphia is hitting those hits at a staggering 41.2 percent. Sure, the Wizards have been an above average defensive team compared to 3-pointer, allowing opponents to hit only 33.1% from the city center ( ninth best percentage in the NBA), but as long as the Sixers play their game and play well, the Phillies will only need about seven to eight hits to secure the pocket for those who bet more.

The Sixers’ game started about two hours before their first pitch, and they’ve done their part. They only have six 3-go in the first half, before passing 8 to 12 from outside the arc in the third quarter. Suddenly, the 76ers posted 14 3s. Add another five in the final stanza from the likes of Tyrese Maxey, James Harden and Tobias Harris, and the total, without any Phillies hits, is 19.

In other words, before that game, Washington allowed just over 15 Once the entire season and 12 times over the entire 2021-22 season. Philadelphia, on the other hand, hit 19 3s in a previous game, do so October 24 against Indiana. However, the Sixers failed to reach more than 15 in two consecutive competitions and did not shoot better than 50% from the deep all season. Both streaks are broken Wednesday. Even though the 76ers lost, those who bet ahead were overjoyed thinking they had won half way through Game 4 of the World Series. My how they were wrong.

The Phillies needed only one hit and those betters could rejoice. And then MLB history happened. Obviously, a no-hitter in the World Series is beyond rare. It’s only happened twice in MLB history, and the only other time was when Don Larsen tossed a perfect game against the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1956. We’ve gone over 60 years without a single beat in the World Series and it had to happen that night, just a day after the Phillies dominated the Astros in Game 3 , won 7-0 and scored seven hits.

That’s a bad beat for the record books. Where one team went above and beyond to make it happen, the other team literally made history to make sure that didn’t happen. The Phillies failed to take a 3-1 World Series lead, losing a home game after they gained a series advantage by robbing a game in Houston.

The Phillies couldn’t recover from that embarrassment in their next game. They allow Justin Verlander scores his first World Series win in his ninth World Series start. It was just an insult added to the injury. It’s better for the Phillies to hope they come back and win the series, or else they’ll not only disappoint the baseball world by letting the Astros win the World Series legally, but also the betting community as a whole. and many sports like Philly disappointed. fans, they don’t forgive and forget quite easily.
