Game 4 of the 2023 MLB World Series takes place at Chase Field tonight, and it feels like a must-win for the Diamondbacks if they are to keep their dreams of winning the 2023 World Series alive. The Rangers are now 2-1 up, and if they win tonight it’s hard to see a way back for Arizona. This is the second of Arizona’s three back-to-back home field matches and they will have to win at least one of them to take the series back to Texas. Below, we take a look at the latest odds for Game 4 and tell you what the best World Series bets are in our latest MLB betting picks.
What; 2023 MLB World Series Game 4
Who; Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Texas Rangers
Where; Chase Field, Phoenix, Arizona
When; Tuesday, October 31st, 2023
Time; 7.03 p.m. ET
The Story so far
The Rangers won the first match 6-5, needing the extra innings to secure the win after an exciting back-and-forth opening match. The Diamondbacks were anything other than intimidated, and even though they lost, they confirmed that anybody who thought this was going to be a walk in the park for the Rangers might need to rethink that opinion.
And if those doubters weren’t sure after the opening night, they sure as hell were after Game 2. Instead of worrying about what might have been, Arizona roared back into the series with a 9-1 win in the second match at Globe Life Field.
Game 3 would have been a real kick in the teeth for Arizona. After running the Rangers close in Game 1 and thrashing them in Game 2, the first home-field match for Arizona represented a real chance for the Diamondbacks to impose themselves on this series. Instead, the Rangers took the honors with a 3-1 win.
Texas did the damage in the third innings, and it was again Corey Seager who was the man who broke the Diamondbacks. Seager hit the ninth-inning home run in the first game to take the match to additional innings. And he scored a two-run home run (his second of the World Series) to down the Diamondbacks again in the third match. The Rangers’ pitching roster then squeezed the Arizona offense, only allowing them one score in the eighth inning.
The win sees the Rangers extend their extraordinary road record in the postseason to 9-0.

Our Pick to win the 2023 World Series
If the Rangers can remain undefeated on the road, they will win the World Series for the first time in their history. But surely, Texas can’t go 11-0 on the road in the postseason? That would be extraordinary. But could anyone confidently back against it at this moment in time?
Let’s get one thing straight here. We can’t see anything other than a World Series win for Texas. They are -300, which is probably a touch too short now. But we did pick them to win at the start of the series. And we are still confident in our bet at -173.

Diamondbacks vs. Rangers; Our Pick to Win Game 4
Now, what about the fourth match? First, we are going for under 9.5 on the total line for our main betting pick. We feel this could be another edgy match with a lot at stake for both teams. More of a repeat of the third fixture than the first and second matches.

For our match-winner pick, it’s really difficult to choose a winner. We feel the Diamondbacks will fight back, but it could be in the fifth match that they finally end the Rangers’ winning streak on the road. We are only lukewarm on this betting pick. But we are going for another win for Texas at -102. And we expect it to be close.
