FOX Sports MLB Betting Analyst Will Hill says during such a competitive postseason, Houston has an advantage over the other teams.

“While there is certainly an intangible with the Astros and a reason they win year after year, there is also a tangible advantage that I think will be the difference in this series: the bullpen,” Hill said.

“The Astros had the sixth-best bullpen ERA this season (3.56), while the Rangers were 24th (4.77). These teams had identical records, playing in the same division. With two teams so evenly matched, the bullpens are often what decides these close games.”
