Houston Astros @ Philadelphia Phillies / MLB 2022 Predictions & Preview

Game 4 of the 2022 MLB World Series will take place on Wednesday as the Houston Astros vs. Philadelphia Phillies in Philadelphia as the Phillies lead 2-1.

The Philadelphia Phillies will be taking on the Houston Astros for game 4 of the 2022 World Series. Philadelphia is going to be coming into this game with a 2-1 series lead and has a real opportunity of making it 3-1 on Wednesday night.

What their offense has been able to do throughout the postseason is nothing short of impressive and has been the reason why this team currently finds itself in the position that they’re in.

If they can continue swinging the bats at an elite level and their pitching can continue doing the job, this Phillies team has a real chance of winning this year’s World Series against a star-studded Houston Astros team.

Philadelphia Phillies Overview

As we all know, with the Philadelphia Phillies, this team isn’t going to roll over to any team in all of baseball. They must realize at the moment that the Houston Astros are still one of the best MLB teams in the league, if not the best team in all of baseball, despite being down in this series.

They can’t take their foot off the gas just yet, and this is a good time for Philly to realize that. Maybe Houston is going to come out and do what they’ve done for the most part of the season, and that’s pitch and hit well at every given moment.

However, with what the Philadelphia Phillies have been able to do on the offensive side of the baseball, it would be tough to say that any team in all of baseball is going to beat them. Not only are the Astros one of the best teams in the league, but Philadelphia has completely shown them they can beat them on any given night.

Aaron Nola is going to be throwing in this game, and that’s not necessarily good news for Philadelphia. He gave up five earned runs in only 4.1 innings pitched against Houston in game 1 of this series and also has a 10.38 ERA throughout the postseason.

Houston Astros Overview

The Houston Astros have been one of the best teams in baseball throughout the past few seasons, and that’s not going to change anytime soon. The reason they’re losing these games is that their pitching has been able to get the job done, but it’s more so just the fact that Philadelphia is as good as they truly are.

Houston is going to have a tough task Wednesday, as Philadelphia is going to be going crazy for their home squad. However, the Astros have a great chance of winning this game if Christian Javier can come out and do what he’s done all season long.

He might not be the biggest name on the Astros roster, but he finished the regular season with a 2.54 ERA, and 194 strikeouts in only 148.2 innings pitched.

His stuff has been elite all season long, and although Philadelphia has had the best offense in baseball throughout the postseason, this is a good time for him to continue dominating.

Houston Astros @ Philadelphia Phillies Prediction

The best bet in this game is going to be taking the Houston Astros to win outright at +110 odds.

Houston has continuously shown us that they can bounce back at any given moment, and although their World Series track record isn’t necessarily the best throughout the past few years, I love this spot for them.

They have lost two of the first three MLB games of the series, and it would make sense if they find a way to bounce back in this game.
