The Astros, despite being down 3-1 in the series and on the brink of elimination on the road, are favored slightly on the moneyline at -115 on DraftKings Sportsbook. The over/under is set at 8.5, which is similar to the line for most of the series.
How to Watch Astros vs Braves live stream:
To send the World Series back to Houston, the Astros will need a better outing from Valdez, who gave up five runs in two innings in Game 1 earlier in the series. Valdez admitted he was a little amped up for that game, his first career World Series appearance, so perhaps those jitters are out of the way. Either way, expect a quick hook with the club’s season on the line.
The Braves are giving the ball to Davidson, who replaced Charlie Morton on the roster after Morton broke his leg in Game 1. Davidson made four MLB starts and four Triple-A starts this season before going down with an elbow injury in June. He returned in time to make a three-inning Triple-A rehab start on Oct. 3, so while he could give the club more than one inning, he is not fully stretched out either. Fellow lefty Drew Smyly is available to chew up multiple innings in relief behind Davidson.
As weak as the offense has looked most of the World Series, I won’t count the Astros out just yet. Valdez will be better than he was in Game 1, Yordan Alvarez will be the hero offensively, and the Astros will force a Game 6 in Houston on Tuesday.
Pick: Astros 6, Braves 4
