The Houston Astros will fight for their maiden World Series crown later this month after beating the New York Yankees on Saturday to set up a title-deciding encounter against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The 5/4 (2.25) World Series underdogs beat the Yankees in back-to-back home matches on Friday and Saturday—dominating the latter meeting 4-0—to book just their second World Series appearance.
Houston lost their only other World Series to the Chicago White Sox in 2005, when they suffered a 4-0 defeat in the best-of-seven series, and the Dodgers are tipped to ensure they lost again 12 years on.
The series will get underway on Tuesday, and Sky Bet have Los Angeles priced as 8/13 (1.62) favourites. They beat the Chicago Cubs 4-1 in the National League Championship Series (NLCS).
