Houston Astros Form
The Astros are the best team in the league this season. Moreover, they have taken the first two games of this series. However, they lost the last game with a score of 10-3.
But this is a good team and they will surely bounce back from this disappointment, The Astros away record stands at 47-34 and they have averaged 5.32 runs per game and have allowed 3.93runs per game in those games.
On the offensive side of the game, the Astros score an average of 5.68 runs per game which is the 3rd record in the league in scoring. Also, they are 1st in hitting at .274 and 3rd in homers with 288. On the mound, they are 3rd in the league in ERA at 3.68, while also ranking 2nd in WHIP at 1.13 and 1st in K’s with 1671.
Tampa Bay Rays Form
The Rays are one of the most solid teams during the regular part of the season. Moreover, they had a run of 4 wins in a row before losing 2 games in a row against the Astros. But this team has quality and they showed that yesterday as they won the game with a score of 10-3. The Rays home record stands at 48-33 and they have averaged 4.52 runs per game and have allowed 3.79 runs per game in those games.
On the offensive side of the game, the Rays score an average of 4.78 runs per game which is the 18th record in the league in scoring.

The Rays are 3rd in WHIP at 1.17 and 3rd in K’s with 1621.
I expect the Astros to win this one. They lost big in their last game and will surely show some different performance this time around. Also, Justin Verlander has a solid 8-0 record with a 2.14 ERA in his career in the ALDS. Verlander is also 11-2 on the road this year and 8-1 in day games. Also, the Astros are 8-2 in their last 10 away games so their form on the road is quite good. Take the Astros to get back on winning ways this one out tonight.
