The Atlanta Braves and Houston Astros are battling in the 2021 World Series, and the Fall Classic is heading for a Game 6. The Astros denied the Braves the chance to win the World Series at home on Sunday in Game 5, but Atlanta still leads the best of seven series, 3- 2. Houston will try to force a win-take-all game 7 at Minute Maid Park.

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

The two teams did not meet in the regular season. They haven’t actually played against each other since 2017, when the Astros won 4-0 against the Braves and scored them by 25 runs in the regular season. It is fair to write that these results have no predictable value as it pertains to this series.

However, SportsLine’s projections should have some. Here is what they predict based on their pre-World Series simulations:

  • Astros: World Series winners in 49.5 percent of the simulations
  • Braves: World Series winners in 50.5 percent of the simulations

In other words, it is expected to get close.
