What to expect from the Astros-Red Sox ALCS

Both of these clubs can score runs in bunches. Not only did the Astros have the league’s best offense during the regular season, but they went on to score 31 runs in four games against a Chicago White Sox team with plenty of strong pitching. The Red Sox are no chumps with the bats, either, which means this one could come down to who can get a shutdown pitching performance.

What to expect from the Braves-Dodgers NLCS

Although the Braves’ top three starters—Charlie Morton, Ian Anderson, and Max Fried—could give the Dodgers some trouble, it’s hard to identify any advantage for Atlanta in this one. There’s a reason Los Angeles won 18 more games during the regular season, and the Braves are without their best player, Ronald Acuna Jr. Stranger upsets have happened, and the Dodgers are coming off an extremely tough series with the San Francisco Giants, but it would be shocking to see the Dodgers go down.

Who’s going to win the World Series?

The Los Angeles Dodgers have put together a preposterously good team by adding Max Scherzer and Trea Turner to a roster that was already the league’s best. They’re dealing with injuries to key contributors Max Muncy and Clayton Kershaw, but it would be unwise to rule them out. This group had very little to prove entering the playoffs, but toppling the 107-win Giants was an impressive feat, and they may not face a tougher test from here on out.

The Atlanta Braves weren’t expected to get this far considering the relatively modest 88-73 record the club posted during the regular season—and the absence of Ronald Acuna Jr. In the ALDS Atlanta absolutely shut down the Milwaukee Brewers, holding them to six runs in four games. It seems unlikely that level of success can continue against a team like the Dodgers. If the Braves make the World Series, they will do so as a massive dark horse.

In the American League, the clear favorites are the Houston Astros, whose offense took the major leagues by storm during the regular season—and an ALDS matchup with the pitching-rich Chicago White Sox. It’s tough to imagine the Boston Red Sox keeping a lid on Houston, but they might be able to keep up on offense. Boston possesses a deep lineup that doesn’t give opposing pitchers room to breathe, and no lead against them is safe. Either team would be favored in a World Series matchup against the Braves, and take the role of underdogs against the Dodgers.

Here are every team’s title odds entering the championship series according to FanGraphs’ championship probability:

Los Angeles Dodgers38.7%
Boston Red Sox24.4%

Atlanta Braves13.3%

  1. This doesn’t work all the time. I’m not sure if the MLB app is getting wise to VPNs but the Boston Yankee game last night was blacked out no matter what VPN location I used in the states. I finally had success with a site in Canada, however it dumped every time there was a commercial break and it required reconnecting.

  2. Express VPN isn’t working for the package like this article states. It did work last year. Have you got this fixed yet? The only reason I have express vpn is for baseball and now it’s not working.

  3. Trying to watch MLB.TV on laptop with Express VPN turned on. When I attempt to stream a live game, I get an error. MLB.TV’s website says you may experience streaming issues while connected to a VPN.

    Any thoughts?

  4. I’m using express VPN on Android and my first two games worked, but today’s game is getting blocked. Same team and same city. Any tips?

    1. Hi Richard,

      Please try the connecting to the closest server location you previously connected to. Also, please decline sharing your location with the app if possible.

  5. Why are Astros games still blacked out using a vpn and setting location as UK? I’ve followed instructions. This has been worthless so far

  6. Hello …
    Can you provide me with a streaming site that could provide Fox Sports Midwest via a Roku device?

    Thanks … bud hodge

  7. I have the ExpressVPN service. Can I use ExpressVPN to sign into MLB.TV to stream blackout games and then cast to a chromecast, or will it note that my Chromecast is on a router located in a blackout area?

  8. tried to stream Baltimore Orioles games on IPVANISH vpn using amazon firetv. miserable failure. why would YOUR vpn be better ? and i’ve heard VPN’s have some sort of trouble with Amazon fire products (by FAR the best and most commonly used streaming devices. Obviously your vpn is not helpful to us if it doesnt work with FireTv/stick products ) what’s a roku/ an australian animal ?) thanx

      1. Hello. Can I get around the mlb blackouts with your service. I have a mlbtv subscription and a roku with my Samsung smart tv

  9. I am having the same issue with my appletv too (4th gen) i have my router (netscape) with expressvpn on it. MLB is still blackout through both systems.
    I got this specifically for watching baseball.

      1. I am going through all your youtube videos, and redoing everything step by step hopefully this will work.

        1. This didn’t help. I’ve tried attaching mediastreamer, but everything else is set up through router. I don’t know how to attach this through expressvpnrouter. Any suggestions?

      2. I got it up and working now. I had to add Media streamer to my expressvpn router. Thankyou for all the youtube videos that walked me through this.

  10. I have my AppleTV set up with Mediastreamer and MLB does not work. I then changed my router’s L2PT settings to be out of the blackout zones, and now every game is blacked out. I’ll be honest, this was one of the big reasons for me to subscribe in the first place.

  11. Just got signed up today and used the step by step guide for setting up with a 4th gen Apple TV by first creating a ddns account, then doing the Dynamic DNS Registration, then manually
    configuring the DNS server IP on the Apple TV’s settings. After restarting via settings (per instructions) I still get blacked out of local games. Any suggestions?

  12. I want to watch Carribean Baseball tournament in Jalisco Mexico. Is there any way to stream it live?

    1. Hi Michael,

      A VPN secures your connection and let’s you enjoy baseball streams no matter where you are. Just fire up ExpressVPN, connect to a location near the tournament locale, and you’ll be all set.

      If you run into any issues, be sure to get help from Support:

  13. MLB at bat is not working for me. I tried a GPS location spoofer in conjunction with VPNexpress and it still doesnt work. I am using device gps only, not advanced tracking.

    1. Hi Vic,

      Try not to use a GPS location spoofer with ExpressVPN. With a VPN, your IP address is already hidden and replaced by the server address you connect to. If you have further problems, please contact the Support team at for further assistance.

    1. Hi Bill,

      ExpressVPN does not interfere with any streamimg service you choose to use. In fact, it helps you access your favorite sport streams no matter where you are.

      If you have problems using ExpressVPN to watch NESN, please contact the Support team at 🙂

  14. It’s not working for the World Baseball Classic on only watchable in the US. I need help or a refund on my money.

  15. I think MLB has gotten wise to the VPN trick. I’m trying to stream the World Baseball Classic in the UK (where it’s blacklisted). Have used Express VPN to both DC and NY and MLB TV says,

    “We’re sorry. We have determined that you are blacked out of watching the game you selected, due to television broadcaster restrictions. An archive copy of the game will be available 90 minutes after the game ends.”

    Is there a solution to this, or are we stuck?


    1. Hi Christian,

      A VPN can help you stream sports no matter where you are. Simply pick a broadcaster that is showing the South African cricket tour, connect to a VPN server in that location, then you’ll be able to watch the games in New Zealand or anywhere else!

  16. Is there any chance that I can get VPN Express to use in Spain and UK while I am away in Europe this month. We are huge baseball fans and don’t want to miss a minute. If it’s possible, can I use wifi to connect in our hotel room? Thanks for your help.
