Here's the full ALCS schedule:

  • Game 1 will be Saturday, Oct. 13 at 7:09 p.m. in Boston
  • Game 2 will be Sunday, Oct. 14 at 6:09 p.m. in Boston
  • Game 3 will be Tuesday, Oct. 16. in Houston at 4:09 p.m.
  • Game 4 will be Wednesday, Oct. 17 in Houston at 7:39 p.m.
  • If necessary, Game 5 will be Thursday, Oct. 18 in Houston at 7:09 p.m.
  • If necessary, Game 6 will be Saturday, Oct. 20 in Boston at 4:09 p.m.
  • If necessary, Game 7 will be Sunday, Oct. 21 in Boston at 6:39 p.m.


The 108-win Red Sox will have home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. But Astros' fans say it doesn't matter where the team plays. They can still defeat Boston.

"We can beat them there. It doesn't matter who has the best record, and they get the best of seven. We can still beat them there, I saw it happen so I know it can happen," said fan Jennifer Lopez.

The Astros played the Red Sox seven times during the regular season, with Houston winning four of those match-ups.

The series tickets are already hard to come by if you're trying to see them in Boston. Resale tickets there are going for $150 for standing room only tickets. You'll be out a couple thousand dollars for good seats.

What fans will pay when the series returns to Houston depends on how the Astros do over the weekend.

"If we go over to Boston and lose the first two and come back here, it is still going to be reasonable. If we go over there and win the first two, it is definitely going to be a hot ticket because everyone wants to see them clinch," said Kayla Ramsey with Midtown Tickets.

Bookies give the Astros the best chance to win the World Series at 2-1 odds. The Red Sox have 3-1 odds.
