Atlanta lost ace Charlie Morton but won Game 1 over the Houston Astros, shifting the Braves into the role of favorites according to oddsmakers.

Morton threw 10 pitches with a fractured leg before the Braves' bullpen finished off the Astros in Houston on Tuesday with Game 2 set for Wednesday night.

Atlanta vaulted into the favorite role at -155 to win the World Series with Houston at +135 odds, according to BetMGM.

But an Astros' victory on Wednesday could flip the Series winner odds, as was the case in the ALCS.

Houston fell behind Boston 2-1 in the best-of-seven series and the Red Sox climbed to +200 to win the American League. But a 9-2 win in Game 4 at Boston pushed the Astros to +180 to claim the ALCS.

The Braves are favored in Game 2 with left-hander Max Fried on the mound. At FanDuel, Atlanta is -1.5 (+164) and -104 moneyline. The over-under was set at 8.5 runs (over is -115).
