Houston Astros vs Boston Red Sox: prediction for the MLB match
The Houston Astros will host the Boston Red Sox in the sixth game of the MLB semifinal series on October 23. We made predictions for this confrontation, which you can find below.
Dusty Baker's men performed well in Boston and recorded victories in 2 out of 3 games (3:12, 9:2 and 9:1). These results allowed the Houston Astros to take the lead in the series (3:2). Now the series moved back to Houston, and the Astros have a good chance to snatch a ticket to the final from their uncompromising opponent.
Boston Red Sox
Alex Cora's charges won the opening semifinal game at their home pitch but failed demonstrate the same agressive style in the following matches and suffered two crushing defeats. The Boston Red Sox still have a chance to get into the final, but there is no room for error.
- The Houston Astros won 5 out of 6 previous home games
- The Boston Red Sox lost in 2 of the last 4 away games
- The Astros defeated the Red Sox in 4 of the last 6 games in Houston
We believe that the Red Sox have practically lost their chance of getting into the final after the series moved to Houston. Boston had energy only for the first home game, but after that the Astros gained control. The Astros generally deliver good results at home and will certainly be very motivated today. We suggest playing the victory of the hosts.
Our prediction - the Houston Astros to win
