Boston Red Sox vs Houston Astros: prediction for the MLB fixture
The Boston Red Socks managed to defeat the Houston Astros in the third match and took the lead in the semifinal series. Will the Red Sox get a ticket to the final on October 20? Our answer is in the prediction below.
Boston Red Sox
The Boston Red Sox crushed their opponent in the first home game, demonstrating that their defeat in the first match was accidental. Alex Cora's men didn't give the Astros a chance to impose a fight. After winning with a score of 12:3, the Red Sox are one step away from the final.
The Houston Astros didn't look convincing at their home pitch, and after the series moved to Boston, they completely fell apart. The Astros earned points only in the fourth inning, but that was not enough to make a comeback. Dusty Baker's charges are losing the series with one victory against two defeats.
- The Boston Red Sox won the last 4 home games
- The Houston Astros lost 6 of the previous 7 away games
- The Red Sox defeated the Astros in the last 2 home games
The Red Sox were unstoppable in the first home game. Boston look much stronger in all respects, and it will be extremely difficult for the Astros to make a comeback. This is the last chance for Houston, but we don't believe they will be able to revive the intrigue and level the score in the series. Probably, the Red Sox will put an end to this series today.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (-1.5) to the Boston Red Sox.
