The 2021 World Series will shift to Truist Park for the Games 3, 4 and 5 starting Friday. The Atlanta Braves and Houston Astros split the first two games of the series in Houston. This will be the first time Truist Park has hosted a World Series game as the Braves were playing their home games at Turner Field in 1999 when they last made it to the Fall Classic.

The Braves are undefeated at home so far this postseason and have won 10 of their last 11 games overall dating back to the regular season. Despite getting the split they needed in Houston, they are still underdogs to win the series according to DraftKings Sportsbook.

Braves vs Astros World Series odds

Astros: -145
Braves +125

When the series open, the Astros were at -155 so the line has moved slightly. The Braves opened at +130. Ian Anderson will get the ball for Atlanta in Game 3 while Luis Garcia is expected to start for Houston. The teams haven’t announced their pitching plans for Games 4 & 5 but bullpen games are a strong possibility for Atlanta following the loss of Charlie Morton.
