2021 Postseason MLB Series Prices: Championship Series

Chris Sale and the Red Sox face the Astros in the ALCS

The wild-card games and division series are done, the final four are set and the 2021 MLB postseason drama is ramping up. There is value to be found in these championship series matchups, and we break down the final playoff series to find that betting edge for you.

From the NL West-surviving Dodgers to maybe Carlos Correa’s last series in Houston, we’ve outlined every MLB series price and storyline for the 2021 championship series.

Bet On The World Series

2021 Postseason MLB Series Prices: American League Championship Series

Boston Red Sox vs Houston Astros

Red Sox vs Astros MLB Series Price
WinnerOpening Odds
Boston Red Sox+130
Houston Astros-155

Odds as of October 15 at Bovada

Stat of the Series:
► Nick Pivetta has a 3.12 ERA and 11 strikeouts in 8.2 innings pitched this postseason

Best Bet: Astros -155

With an inconsistent Chris Sale, a shallow bullpen and a beat-up lineup, the Red Sox run could come to an end against this deeper and more talented Houston squad. Even with strong outings from Nick Pivetta and Tanner Houck, and an injury to the Astros’ Lance McCullers Jr., the Houston pitching staff featuring Framber Valdez, Luis Garcia, Zack Greinke and a solid bullpen gives the Astros the clear pitching edge.

Then, comparing lineups, it’s clear why the Astros are big favorites in this seven-game series. Even before injuries  to J.D. Martinez and Rafael Devers, the Astros’ hitting core of Jose Altuve, Michael Brantley and Alex Bregman will be Boston’s biggest test yet. When Carlos Correa and Kyle Tucker are batting in the bottom half of your lineup, you’ll be hard to beat.

2021 Postseason MLB Series Prices: National League Championship Series

Atlanta Braves vs Los Angeles Dodgers

Braves Vs Dodgers MLB Series Price
WinnerOpening Odds
Atlanta Braves+185
Los Angeles Dodgers-225

Odds as of October 15 at Bovada

Stat of the Series:
► Atlanta starter Max Fried has allowed one earned run in his last four starts

Best Bet: Braves +185

The Los Angeles Dodgers chug on, escaping the 107-win San Francisco Giants and once again reaching the NLCS. They’re probably gonna win – they’re the Dodgers – but the rested and ready Braves present some significant value in these championship series odds.

Atlanta didn’t beat Milwaukee with a high-powered offense, but contributions from Freddie Freeman, Joc Pederson, Austin Riley and Ozzie Albies were enough to propel them over the Brew Crew. They did, however, get amazing pitching, and will need it again in this seven-game series. If Charlie Morton, Max Fried and Ian Anderson can match Max Scherzer, Walker Buehler and Julio Urias, the Braves will at least have a shot.
