It’s expected to be a chilly evening in Atlanta, with temperatures hovering between the low-50s and high-40s. That will be a challenge for both sides, although the Braves have likely dealt with these conditions more frequently than the Astros as members of the NL East.
There is some scattered rain in the evening forecast for the Atlanta area, although it is unlikely to result in delays. The Astros and Braves are tied at 1-1 heading into Game 3. Houston is favored on the run line but is a +100 underdog on the moneyline according to DraftKings Sportsbook.
