Here’s your guide to the 2021 World Series, which starts Tuesday at Minute Maid Field in Houston: opening World Series odds between the Braves and the Astros at DraftKings Sportsbook. The Atlanta Braves and Houston Astros will face off in the 2021 World Series which will get underway Tuesday, October 26 with Game 1 at Minute Maid Park in Houston.

The early series line has the Astros as favorites to win the series. Houston won 95 games during the regular season winning the AL West. They defeated the Chicago White Sox in the Division Series and rallied to win the final three games of the ALCS after falling behind 2-1.
Atlanta, for the second straight year, went up 3-1 over the heavily favored Dodgers and then lost Game 5, but it shut down the Los Angeles bats in Game 6 to advance to its first World Series since 1999. Now, the franchise will pursue its first world title since 1995.
Believe it or not, the 2021 World Series will not be the first time the Astros and Braves have met in October. It’s easy to forget now, but Houston spent the first 51 years of its baseball existence in the National League, playing the Braves in the regular season multiple times each year, more than 700 times total.
When the Braves moved to Atlanta in 1966, the Astros were the third team to come visit. (They lost on a Henry Aaron walk-off, a pain so many others knew.)Atlanta holds a 12-7 advantage over Houston in the postseason.

A similar issue persists at second base, because when you get to the World Series, you’re of course delving into two skilled rosters, so to make a choice is to have to pick between one extremely good player and another.
This is what confronts us at the keystone, where you can expect to hear entirely too much about how small Ozzie Albies (5-foot-8, 105 OPS+) and Jose Altuve (5-foot-6, 127 OPS+) are, and not nearly enough about how fantastic their on-field work is. They both hit 30 or more homers this season; Altuve did so with a 40-point edge in on-base percentage.
