With their collective backs up against the wall in the 2019 World Series, the Houston Astros were down 0-2 to the Washington Nationals heading into Game 3, and came in as underdogs to win it all for the first time in months.

In the must-win game, Houston did just that, something that shifted the odds to win the 2019 World Series to nearly even.

Following the Astros 4-1 win in Game 3, the odds moved from favoring the Nationals heavily (-245) to a near dead heat, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. The Nationals, along with their 2-1 series lead, are narrow favorites to win it all, at -116, while the Astros sit just behind in the odds at -104.

Washington is a slight favorite in Game 4 and will look to get back on track after the team's first loss in its last nine MLB postseason games.

The Astros were among the favorites to win the World Series since the MLB Trade Deadline, and after just one victory in the series, it's interesting to see their odds move from +200 to -104 with a single win.

The outcome of tonight's game will surely affect the odds to win the World Series as a 3-1 lead is very different from a 2-2 tie.
