MLB Weekly Odds
Houston Astros vs Philadelphia Phillies
Game 6 of the World Series between the Philadelphia Phillies and the Houston Astros is underway at Minute Maid Park. The Houston Astros and Philadelphia Phillies split the previous five MLB World Series head-to-head matches, with the Astros winning three and the Phillies winning two. Jeremy Pena hit a home run on baseball’s grandest stage in the fourth inning of the prior game between these teams, which the Astros won 2-3. The Phillies must win two games on the road despite their bats’ recent slump, which has lasted the last two games. Therefore, the Phillies is running out of time to recover. This would be their final chance to show caste their talents on the mound. On game day 6, Zack Wheeler was formally named as the Phillies’ starting pitcher for Game 6. Meantime, Dusty Baker, the manager of the Houston Astros, will start Framber Valdez in Game 6 of the World Series. The 2022 postseason has seen absolute dominance from Framber Valdez. In 2019, Houston faced the Washington Nationals at home in Games 6 and 7, where they went on to lose. The hardest victory is always the final one. With two opportunities to win one game, the Astros have a good chance of winning the second championship in the team’s history.
