Not much of a surprise to learn that Vegas prefers the Dodgers, who won the most games in baseball this season (104) and have mostly coasted through the postseason thus far. They’ve only lost one game up to this point. But the Astros were good too, winning 101 games themselves, and they feel a little more battle-tested after beating the Yankees in seven games.
Game 1 of the World Series is set for 8 p.m. ET Tuesday at Dodger Stadium in L.A. The pitching matchup is expected to be Clayton Kershaw against either Dallas Keuchel or Justin Verlander.
