The Houston Astros (4-6) and Washington Nationals (8-3) will continue a four-game National League series on Tuesday night inside Nationals Park, with the first pitch scheduled for 7:05 ET.

Las Vegas oddsmakers have established the Nationals as -175 home favorites, while the total holds steady at 7.

Houston has been involved in six straight games decided by three runs or less, including a 6-3 series-opening loss on Monday. Total bettors are definitely noticing a trend with the youngest roster in baseball, with the "over" cashing in nine of their first 10 games.
