Atlanta Braves vs Houston Astros: prediction for the MLB match
The Atlanta Braves took the lead in the final series after securing a home victory in the last game. Will the Astros be able to level the score today? Our answer is in the prediction below.
The Atlanta Braves did not look unstoppable or particularly powerful in the third game of the final series, but their opponents fought even worse and as a result, the hosts recorded points in the third and the eighth innings. Now Brian Snitker's men lead the score in the series at 2 victories against 1 defeat and will be looking to increase their advantage today.
The Houston Astros looked extremely poor in Atlanta and couldn't win a single inning. Dusty Baker's charges failed to score points in their first away game, and now the Astros face a difficult task of catching up with their opponents.
- The Houston Astros won 3 out of 5 previous away games
- The Atlanta Braves lost only 1 game out of 10 on their pitch
- The Houston Astros won 7 out of 9 away games against the Braves
Both teams looked quite shaky in the first game at Atlanta. The impression was that both sides decided to take it easy and catch a breath before continuing the fight for the title.
The home team prevailed, and now is leading the score at 2-1. We think that the Astros will perform much better today. They do not lack motivation or skill, and should be able to focus for this game. Otherwise, their chances of winning the World Series will become even slimmer.
Our prediction - the Houston Astros to win
