Houston Astros vs Atlanta Braves 10/31/2021 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Houston Astros will go against the Atlanta Braves in MLB action in Truist Park, Atlanta, GA, on Sunday, October 31, 2021, at 8:15 PM (EDT). For this vital Game 5 showdown at home, the official starter is yet to be revealed. Charlie Morton pitched this match at home for the Braves, but he fractured his fibula in Game 1 and will not come back this season.

 

Atlanta had the fewest victories of the 10 playoff teams this year, and after trading Ronald Acuna Jr., they had a narrow chance of making the playoffs at the trade deadline. It wasn’t until August 6 that they had significant success. They went 40-21 since then, including the playoffs, to become only the fourth club to reach the World Series with a losing record at the All-Star break. They’re a scrappy bunch, to say the least.

 

Freddie Freeman, Atlanta’s first baseman, is one of the team’s most consistent hitters these playoffs, coming up clutch on many occasions. In the 2021 MLB playoffs, he is the Braves’ second-leading hitter, batting. 293 with 2 doubles, 3 home runs, and 8 RBIs. In addition, he drew 11 walks in 12 matches.

 

He went 1-for-3 with a walk and an RBI in Game 1 against Houston, and he homered in Game 4 of the NLDS to help the Braves beat the Milwaukee Brewers 5-4. In this match, they’ll need Freddie in a major way.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Atlanta’s last 5 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 10 of Atlanta’s previous 14 matches against Houston.
  • Atlanta is 9-0 SU in their last 9 matches at home.

Houston Astros vs Atlanta Braves Predictions 10/31/2021

 

The Astros are yet to name their official starting pitcher. After throwing Game 1, they are anticipated to send left-hander Framber Valdez to the mound, but no official announcement was made. If Houston’s lefty is used up in Game 4, don’t anticipate seeing him again.

 

Jose Altuve, the second baseman, is returning from a 2-for-5 performance in Game 2 of the World Series, with a home run, two RBIs, and two runs scored. During the regular season, he was a key component of the Astros’ success. Altuve batted .278 in 146 games, with 31 home runs, 83 RBIs, and 117 runs scored.

 

Throughout his career, he had a good track record against the Braves. He is hitting.340 in 13 regular-season matches, with 2 doubles, 1 home run, seven RBI, and 6 stolen bases.

 

The Astros’ hitting is consistent. Houston has the second-best postseason team batting average in the league at .276. With the talents of Yordan Alvarez, Carlos Correa, and the aforementioned Altuve, the Astros topped the AL in average and on-base percentage during the regular season, and we understand how much power they can generate.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Houston’s previous 5 matches.
  • Houston is 6-3 SU in their previous 9 matches against Atlanta.
  • The Houston Astros are 3-8 SU in their previous 11 away matches. 

Houston Astros vs Atlanta Braves. The MLB pick for this game is the Houston Astros. With the caliber of their explosive bats and bullpens, it’s no wonder that these clubs progressed this far. Both offenses have a high ceiling and the capacity to put up huge numbers in important games.

 

The Braves demonstrated this in Game 1 when they hit two home runs. With the likes of Yordan Alvarez, Carlos Correa, and the aforementioned Altuve, the Astros lead the AL in average and on-base percentage, and we know how much impact they can generate. The Braves dropped Charlie Morton to a broken fibula in Game 1, so it’ll be interesting to see which bullpen arm/starter they’ll use in Game 5.

 

The opening two innings are expected to be either by Tucker Davidson or Jesse Chavez. Unless Valdez is brought out late in Game 4, the Astros have a distinct advantage here, with Valdez (probably) completing the game on short rest. For both teams, Game 5 is essential, and the Astros will win because of their better pitching. The Houston Astros will win to a predicted score of 4-3.
