Now, in what is Atlanta’s first World Series appearance since 1999, the Braves have home advantage again on Saturday evening, as the best-of-seven series heads into Game 4.

Braves tipped to win out in Game 4 too

Overall, it’s an extremely closely-matched series which, it is widely felt, may well go the distance. However, having moved ahead on Friday, the Braves appear to be slightly favoured to win again in Game 4 and take a commanding 3-1 lead.

At the time of writing, for example, Moneyline had the Braves at -118 favourites to follow up their Game 3 triumph with another victory.

That would leave the Astros, who lost out to the Washington Nationals in 2019, with work to do to avoid a second World Series defeat in three years.
