The Astros (95-67) had a better regular season record than the Braves (88-74), so Houston has the home court advantage in the Fall Classic.

The two teams have not met in the regular season. Indeed, they haven’t faced each other since 2017, when the Astros went 4-0 against the Braves and beat them by 25 points in the regular season. It is fair to write that these results have no predictive value for this series.
SportsLine’s screenings, however, should have some. Here’s what they’re planning based on their pre-World Series simulations:
- Astros: World Series winners in 49.5% of simulations
- Braves: World Series winners in 50.5% of simulations
In other words, it should be close.
