The race to win the 2018 World Series is down to four teams. The Boston Red Sox will take on the Houston Astros in the American League Championship Series, and it’ll be the Los Angeles Dodgers against the Milwaukee Brewers in the National League Championship Series.

Neither team that has home-field advantage is favored to reach the Fall Classic. According to 5Dimes, the No.2 seed Dodgers (-150) have better odds to win the NLCS than the Brewers (+130), who finished the regular season with the NL’s best record. The 108-win Red Sox (+100) are slight underdogs against the Astros (-120), though they did open with the same odds at Bovada.lv.

Either AL team would be favored in any World Series matchup. The Astros (+190) have slightly better than 2/1 championship odds at 5Dimes, and the Red Sox (+260) are given better than a 3/1 chance. The Dodgers (+310) have been one of the top favorites in the NL all season long, despite needing a 163rd game to win the division. The odds for the Brewers (+450) don’t necessarily reflect how well they’ve played in late September and October.

Milwaukee didn’t have much trouble in the NLDS, sweeping the Colorado Rockies and outscoring them 13-2. The Brewers are coming off two consecutive shutouts. Milwaukee ended the regular season on an eight-game winning streak, which included a victory at Wrigley Field over the Chicago Cubs to give them the NL Central title.

Los Angeles needed four games to beat the Atlanta Braves in the NLDS. Aside from their 6-5 loss in Game 3, the Dodgers outscored the Braves 15-2 with two home shutouts.

Houston took care of the Cleveland Indians in three games, outscoring them 21-6. The defending champions have just two losses over their last 13 games.

Boston was the last team to punch their ticket to the league championship series. After becoming the only team with home-field advantage to lose in their own ballpark in the division series, the Red Sox defeated the New York Yankees 16-1 and 4-3 in the Bronx.
