The odds for MLB's League Championship Series have been announced http://www.astrosfanproshop.com/authentic-jimmy-wynn-jersey , and interestingly, the teams without home-field advantage are the favorites.B/R Betting provided the latest look at each team's odds to win, as well as the overall odds to win the World Series:B/R Betting br_bettingNLCS and ALCS prices, via BovadaOfficial:Dodgers (-175) vs. Brewers (+145)Astros (-155) vs. Red Sox (+125) DqjicIcc0ZB/R Betting br_bettingWho ya got? 鉁嶏笍 ngi8mJYAFWThe Milwaukee Brewers will host Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 1 of the National League battle Friday, while the Boston Red Sox will be home against the Houston Astros in Game 1 of the American League matchup Saturday.It's unsurprising to see the American League teams having an advantage in World Series odds, especially considering their success during the regular season.The Red Sox led the league with 108 wins, while the Astros weren't too far behind them at 103. Four AL teams had a better record than anyone in the NL, including both participants in the Wild Card Game.However, the odds to reach the World Series are a bit more shocking.While the Astros are the defending champions Francisco Liriano Jersey , the Red Sox have been dominant throughout the year with the best offense in baseball. They also had a more impressive first-round win by taking out the rival New York Yankees.Considering the team went 57-24 atFenwayPark this year, home-field advantage could also go a long way.In the NL, the Dodgers are favored to win even with the Brewers entering theNLCSwith an 11-game winning streak. The team has a shutdown bullpen, and ChristianYelichhas been nearly unstoppable for the past couple of months.Still, Los Angeles' depth and experience could go a long way toward winning the pennant for the second year in a row. MIAMI — On Wednesday night, Miami Marlins rookie right-hander Sandy Alcantara will get another chance.Alcantara (1-0, 1.80 ERA), set to face the visiting Philadelphia Phillies in the rubber game of a three-contest series, will be making just his second major league start.Still http://www.astrosfanproshop.com/authentic-charlie-morton-jersey , he doesn’t lack for confidence. The Dominican native with the golden right arm — his fastball has reached 102 mph — wasn’t too happy earlier this summer when he was still in New Orleans, which is Miami’s Triple-A affiliate.Article continues below ...“I have to wait for (the Marlins’) decision,” Alcantara said in Spanish at that time. “But I feel I should’ve been in the majors a long time ago. Sometimes it makes me mad. I attack hitters so that they know I should not be in the minors.”Alcantara, 22, finally made his first major league start on June 29, beating the New York Mets while allowing three hits, five walks and one run in five innings.Immediately following that game, however, Alcantara landed on the disabled list due an infection in the armpit area.Now Alcantara will be matched up against Phillies right-hander Nick Pivetta (7-10 Andy Pettitte Jersey , 4.66 ERA), a 25-year-old native of Canada.Pivetta took the road less traveled to the majors — from Canada to New Mexico Junior College and then the Washington Nationals, who drafted him in the first round in 2013.Last year, Pivetta made his major league debut, flashing a high-powered fastball that averages 94.8 mph.Pivetta has a 4.28 ERA in 16 home appearances this year, including 15 starts. On the road, Pivetta has been worse — a 5.19 ERA in 12 starts.In six career starts against the Marlins, Pivetta is 2-1 with a 5.83 ERA.The Phillies are counting on Pivetta because they gained a game on the first-place Atlanta Braves on Tuesday. The Phillies are now three games behind Atlanta in the National League East.“We have a ton of confidence,” Phillies manager Gabe Kapler told philly.com.The Phillies certainly played with confidence on Tuesday Jose Cruz Jr. Jersey , getting three RBIs each from Cesar Hernandez and Asdrubal Cabrera in a 9-4 win over the Marlins.Carlos Santana also homered and had two RBIs for the Phillies, and Jake Arrieta struck out a season-best 11 batters to earn his 10th win of the season.Cabrera, acquired from the New York Mets on July 27, hit a two-run double and a solo homer. He has 23 homers this year — seven of them against Miami and five of those at Marlins Park. In fact, Cabrera has a home run in four straight games against the Marlins.Hernandez, who went 2-for-3 with two walks, a single and the triple, snapped out of a slump — he had gone 1-for-18 in his past five games.As for a hot Marlins hitter heading into Wednesday’s game, watch out for catcher J.T. Realmuto http://www.astrosfanproshop.com/authentic-nolan-ryan-jersey , who homered twice on Tuesday. He has 20 homers this season as a first-time All-Star.Realmuto will also be in charge of guiding Alcantara from his crouch behind home plate.“(Alcantara) throws hard, but they will hit you as you go up levels if that’s all you have,” New Orleans manager Arnie Beyeler said. “He needs to continue to develop his fastball command.”
