The 2021 World Series gets underway on Tuesday with a Game 1 matchup between the Houston Astros and the Atlanta Braves. First pitch from Houston is scheduled for 8:09 p.m. ET. Houston is the -135 favorite (risk $135 to win $100) on the money line in the latest Braves vs. Astros odds, while the over-under for total runs scored is 8.5.

Before making any Dodgers vs. Braves picks, you NEED to see what SportsLine expert John Bollman has to say.

Bollman combines MLB front-office experience with a deep statistical background. Bollman, who has a master's degree in biostatistics, worked in the Toronto Blue Jays' analytics department in 2018, focusing on high-performance sports science and player development.

In his last 315 MLB picks, Bollman has gone 183-132, returning more than $5,500. Anyone who has followed his picks has seen HUGE returns!

Atlanta has the starting pitching advantage on paper with Charlie Morton. Morton posted a 3.34 ERA this season, one of the top marks in the National League, and he owns a career 3.45 in playoff action. He also ranked in the top ten in myriad categories among NL starters, headlined by wins above replacement, innings pitched and strikeout rate. Offensively, the Braves led the NL in home runs after the All-Star break, and this is a potent lineup.

The Astros have the best statistical offense in baseball. Houston set the pace by leading MLB in runs, hits, batting average and on-base percentage in 2021, blasting away at opposing pitching staffs. The Astros can also take solace in their offensive depth, with ALCS MVP Yordan Alvarez backed up by Kyle Tucker, Jose Altuve, Yuli Gurriel and many more. Houston is also playing at home, where the team has been lights-out this season.

Now, Bollman has set his sights on Braves vs. Astros. We can tell you he is leaning over on Kyle Tucker's total bases, and he also has a money-line pick you won't want to miss, as well as multiple prop plays that return higher than 2-1! You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any MLB picks of your own.
