With the Cleveland Indians now out of the playoffs, the Houston Astros are considered the favorites to make it to the World Series. Houston finished the season with the second-best record in the American League and defeated the Boston Red Sox in four games in the ALDS. 

The New York Yankees finished the season as the first wild card team and beat the reigning American League Champion Cleveland Indians in five games to get to the ALCS.

Both teams have similar strengths and weakness which makes this series a fun one to watch.
