Houston Astros vs Atlanta Braves: prediction for the MLB match
Houston Astros managed to beat Atlanta Braves in the final match at Atlanta and now The World Series is coming back to Houston, Will hosts record a victory on November 3? The answer is in our prediction.
Dusty Baker's Houston Astros almost lost the World Series, but in the previous away game they managed to step up. Astros were looking solid throughout the whole match, they managed to come back into the game after a bad start and to record a 9:5 victory. This victory brought the intrigue back into the series and Houston team is now only 2:3 behind.
Brian Snitker's Atlanta Braves put up a great performance in the first inning of the previous home game and were 4:0 ahead, but at the start of the sixth one they were losing by two points. Hosts' performance declined after the first three innings, while visitors managed to put up a confident performance and recorded a victory in the match, so Braves were left without an opportunity to win a title at home. Now series is back to Houston.
- Houston Astros recorded seven victories in ten most recent home games
- Atlanta Braves suffered four defeats in seven most recent away fixtures
- Houston Astros recorded nine victories in eleven most recent head-to-head games at home
Intrigue is still alive in the World Series and in our opinion, Astros will be in a better emotional condition after a victory in the previous match, while their opponents are devastated. Both teams have some problems with the squad, but situation with Astros' line-up is not too severe and they are ready to level the score in the series.
Seems like Atlanta Braves gave all their energy in the first inning and then just stopped. If a Houston game will go by the same scenario, it will be difficult for the visitors to win the series. We think that hosts will be extremely motivated for a home game - team kept enough energy, so we think that Houston team will get the victory.
Our prediction - Houston Astros to win
