I don’t believe there is a home field advantage for Wednesday’s seventh game of the World Series.
The 2016 and 2014 fall classics went to a deciding game and on both occasions the visitors won.
There have been 38 deciding games in World Series’ history, and 50 per cent of the time the visitors have claimed the championship.
History doesn’t show a sizeable edge to the home team.
I think Los Angeles will win because of their manager Dave Roberts. Roberts has done a terrific job in managing his bullpen.
Kenley Jansen’s six out effort on Tuesday gives L.A. some interesting options on Wednesday, including that of having starter Clayton Kershaw come on in relief.
Left hander Tony Watson got the win in game six, and only had to get one out to do it. Watson hasn’t given up a run in five World Series appearances. The Dodgers are deep.
It’s ironic that in such an offensive series, the focus switches to pitching. But I believe that Dodger starters and relievers will lift L.A. to a championship.
