The Dodgers evened the series on Tuesday with a 3-1 victory in Game 6.                     Betting line: The Dodgers opened as -130 favorites (wager $130 to win $100); the total is at 7.5 runs, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark. Line updates and matchup report. MLB betting pick, via OddsShark computer: 4.7-2.6, Astros (MLB picks on every game)                Why the Astros can pay on the MLB lines The Astros have not lost two games in a row during this World Series, always finding a way to bounce back despite having the odds against them. Wednesday will be no different, as they find themselves as underdogs once again. Houston has only been a solid favorite in one of the first six games, and that still did not keep the team from taking a 3-2 series lead into Game 6. The Astros just have to play loose like they did in Game 5 in order to win their first title.                  Why the Dodgers can pay on the MLB lines Los Angeles seemingly has the edge in the starting pitching matchup with Yu Darvish toeing the rubber opposite Lance McCullers. While Darvish has struggled during his postseason career for the most part with the Dodgers and Texas Rangers, at least he will get the opportunity to pitch at home for the first time in this playoff run. Darvish's first three starts for Los Angeles this postseason all took place on the road, and the worst came at Houston in Game 3. Before that, Darvish went 2-0 and allowed only two runs in 11.1 innings.                    Smart betting pick Los Angeles is the team to beat here without question due to a superior bullpen and a true home-field advantage. The Dodgers got to McCullers in Game 3, scoring three runs and walking four times in 5.1 innings. Unfortunately for them, Darvish gave up more runs in 1.2 innings, and they eventually lost 5-3. But the move to pick up Darvish from the Rangers was for a moment like this, and he will come through for his new team. Look for Los Angeles to complete the job and win its first World Series since 1988 in Game 7.                      MLB betting trends Houston is 1-4 in its last five games on the road. The total has gone under in six of Houston's last nine games against Los Angeles. LA Dodgers is 7-2 in its last nine games when playing at home against Houston.                 All MLB odds and betting trends courtesy of Bleacher Report’s official odds partner, OddsShark.

The Boring Company's aim is to build tunnels that could transport cars or support high-speed transit systems like the Hyperloop. The company is making progress on its test tunnel in Los Angeles. Tesla CEO Elon Musk gave the public a glimpse of his tunnel under Los Angeles this weekend. Musk posted a photo on Saturday showing the tunnel dug by the Boring Company, the serial entrepreneur's latest venture. Musk's ultimate goal for the city of LA is to build a network of tunnels that can transport cars and help alleviate traffic in the most-congested US city. Musk said the tunnel is currently 500-feet long but should stretch two miles in four months. The tunnel is being dug in SpaceX's parking lot at the intersection of Crenshaw Boulevard and Rocket Road in Los Angeles.  Picture of The Boring Company LA tunnel taken yesterday pic.twitter.com/TfdVKyXFsJ — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) October 28, 2017 The Boring Company was granted approval in August by the city of Hawthorne, California, to dig the tunnel so it could prove its electric skate technology. The company wants to build an electric skate that can rocket cars through the tunnel, like so: So far, the tunnel can only be used for research and development; once the Boring Company has finished testing the electric skate, the city of Hawthorne can request that the Boring Company refill its hole. The company is seeking approval to extend the tunnel under Interstate 405 of Los Angeles International Airport. The Boring Company is also pursuing projects in Chicago and along the East Coast. The company was granted state approval to dig a 10.3-mile tunnel beneath the Baltimore-Washington Parkway. It would be the first leg of a Hyperloop system that would extend from Baltimore to New York with stops in Washington and Philadelphia.  A Hyperloop is a nascent transit system that experts say could transport people in pods at speeds exceeding 200 mph.SEE ALSO: Tesla just unveiled its first battery project in Puerto Rico that will restore power to a children's hospital FOLLOW US: on Facebook for more car and transportation content!

Astros’ win in Game 3 overshadowed by Gurriel’s racist gestureHouston lead series 2-1 after Dodgers won World Series openerEmail hunter.felt.freelance@theguardian.com or tweet @HunterFelt 12.32am BST So welcome to Game 4 of the World Series, where the Houston Astros currently have a 2-1 lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers thank to the 1-2 punch of Lance McCullers and Brad Peacock in yesterday’s Game 3.In tonight’s Game 4 we have the Dodgers going with Alex Wood and the Astros are starting Charlie Morton in what looks to be one of the most “Game 4”-ish pitching matchups in World Series Game 4 history. After the Dodgers unleashed their entire bullpen in order to stay in Game 3, it’s very possible that they could be at a major disadvantage in today’s Game 4 if Wood doesn’t give them a quality start. 4.14pm BST Hunter will be here shortly, in the meantime here’s what happened in Game 3:Yu Darvish came into the contest with one run conceded in each of his previous two postseason starts and a track record of dominance in Houston. On Friday, things went a lot worse – not only did he have a rough time on the mound, he was also the subject to a racist gesture from the Houston Astros’ Yuli Gurriel.The incident came after Gurriel homered off Darvish, who was born in Osaka to a Japanese mother, in the second inning. Television pictures caught Gurriel making what appeared to be a “slant eye” gesture in the dug-out. Astros manager AJ Hinch said he had been briefed about the incident. “I know he’s remorseful but other than that I don’t know a lot,” he said.
