2021 World Series Odds
- Houston Astros -130
- Atlanta Braves +110
Prior to Game 2, the Braves were the (-160) favorite since Game 1 winners have had a lot of historical success. The team that won the series opener has won the World Series in 20 of the last 25 years, however, while slightly outdated, the winner of Game 3 when tied 1-1 has an equally strong correlation to winning the series.
Which Team’s Odds Have More Value?
Considering the winner of Game 3 has a serious advantage over the loser, it’d make sense to look at the Game 3 odds to see which team may take the lead.
However, those betting on the World Series will find both teams with the same odds.
Braves vs Astros Game 3 Moneyline
- Atlanta Braves -110
- Houston Astros -110
There’s a fair case to be made on either side. For the Braves, their job was to go into Houston and split the first two games. Plus, if Game 3 is truly a pick ‘em it would bring more value to the Braves (+110) odds since the winner of this game will become heavy favorites on the series price.
For Houston, the argument of them being the favorites before the series started and once again with the series tied shows that online sportsbooks deeply believe that the Astros are the better team. And as most bettors know, the sportsbook is right more often than not.
Game 3 will start at 8:09 p.m. EST on Friday and can be seen on FOX.
