LA Dodgers 11/20 vs Houston Astros 13/10

Yasiel Puig's prediction was spot on as the Dodgers won game six to force the World Series into a game seven decider. The Houston Astros were restrained to only one run in a match that would've crowned them World Series Champions.

George Springer scored a solo home run in the top third to hand the Astros the lead. Justin Verlander kept the hosts quiet as he conceded no runs, two hits, from his five innings. But, in the bottom sixth, the Dodgers must have read him, as Chris Taylor and Corey Seager's hits saw Chase Utley and Austin Barnes score to take the lead, 2–1.

Kenley Jansen and Kenta Maeda kept the Astros' hitters nullified as Carlos Correa, Jose Altuve, and Alex Bregman failed to score any runs.

The Dodgers stretched their lead as Joc Pederson slammed a 154km fastball for a home run, handing the Los Angeles Dodgers the 3-1 lead.

Kenley Jansen had to save the game and he did as he struck out McCann, Reddick, and Beltran for his fifth save in the postseason.

Final Score: Los Angeles Dodgers 3–1 Houston Astros

WATCH HIGHLIGHTS HERE

With the Dodgers forcing game seven - this will make an incredible conclusion to this year's World Series title. Possible starting pitchers for game seven are: Yu Darvish for the Dodgers - who's on a high 21.60 ERA from the last seven days, conceding four runs and six hits, failing to claim a strikeout.

Lance McCullers will start the pitching for the Astros. He's on 5.06 ERA, three strikeouts, three runs, and four hits.

The LA Dodgers have a longer list of game winning hitters as, Joc Pederson, Justin Turner, Yasiel Puig, and Chris Taylor can all get the job done.

The Astros have a slightly shorter but more dynamic list of hitters as the duo of Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa has proved time and time again that when they are hitting in the same inning - one can expect a bit of magic. Alex Bergman and George Springer also provide the fire power to win the World Series.

Verdict: Houston Astros 13/10
With their first World Series title hopes on the cards and their lack of fear on the big stage, I have to side with the team from Texas to stun the Dodgers at home.
