Astros-Braves World Series Game 6 best bets

The Houston Astros offense picked the right time to turn things around and earned a trip back to Minute Maid Park in the process. The Atlanta Braves will now have to try and win the World Series on the road after Sunday’s 9-5 loss. Adam Duvall’s first-inning grand slam sent Truist Park into a frenzy, but the Astros scored nine of the 10 runs the rest of the way and forced Game 6 on Tuesday night.

The Braves will send out Max Fried on full rest and the Astros will counter with Luis Garcia. Will we have a winner-take-all Game 7 or will the Braves take a title back to Georgia?

Game 6: Atlanta Braves at Houston Astros (-120, 9)

The Astros went into Game 5 with four hits with a runner in scoring position in the series. They had five in Game 5 alone. Houston had 15 at bats with RISP compared to just three for Atlanta and that was ultimately the difference in the game. The only hit with a runner in scoring position for the Braves came on the Duvall grand slam. The only other run was a Freddie Freeman solo shot.

The Astros scored nine runs without the benefit of a home run. Houston drew six walks, three of them off of Tucker Davidson, who was forced into starting duties because of the injury to Charlie Morton. Houston got a poor start from Framber Valdez for the second time in the series, but the bats bailed out the left-hander.

Houston was 4-for-31 with runners in scoring position prior to Game 5, but now the lineup has a little bit of life and some more belief. Furthermore, the series shifts back to an AL ballpark now, so the Astros will be able to use Yordan Alvarez as the DH and put a stronger defensive lineup in play.
