Why Astros have an edge over the Red Sox in the ALCS

SportsPulse: USA TODAY Sports' Bob Nightengale and For The Win's Ted Berg tell us who they think is the favorite to win the upcoming ALCS between the Red Sox and Astros. After the Boston Red Sox secured an American League Championship Series berth with a nail-biting win over the Yankees in Game 4 of the ALDS on Tuesday, they returned to Boston to prepare for a best-of-seven set with a Houston Astros club that swept the Cleveland Indians in their first-round matchup. The Red Sox finished the regular season with an MLB-best 108-54 record, but they face a tough draw in the 2018 ALCS against an Astros club that went 103-59 – the league's second-best mark – after winning the World Series in 2017.
