The 2021 World Series kicks off on Tuesday with a Game 1 showdown between the Atlanta Braves and Houston Astros.

Here are three of the best prop bets for this World Series game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Braves vs Astros Game 1 Prop Bets Tonight - 10/26/2021

1. Kyle Tucker - Record an RBI (+175)

Few players have been as consistent as Kyle Tucker this postseason. The Astros right-fielder has recorded an MLB-leading 15 RBI in the playoffs and looks to continue his hot streak against the Braves. In fact, Tucker has 8 RBI in his last five games alone and has only been held hitless twice this postseason. Atlanta has also given up an average of 5.00 RBI over their last three games, so it's hard not to like Tucker recording at least one in Game 1.

2. Eddie Rosario - Record a Hit (-230)

Like Tucker is for the Astros, Braves left-fielder Eddie Rosario has been Atlanta's most consistent player at the plate. The 30-year-old veteran leads all active postseason players with 15 hits. If that wasn't impressive enough, he's recorded at least one hit in each of the Braves' 10 playoff games so far. Rosario also played the Astros four times this season as a member of the Cleveland Indians, recording four hits in nine at-bats for a .444 batting average. With a proven track record, it wouldn't be surprising to see him extend his hit streak to 11 games.

3. Framber Valdez - Total Hits Allowed: Over 4.5 (-108)

Astros left-handed pitcher Framber Valdez has had an up-and-down MLB postseason. He started things off rocky, allowing six earned runs and 13 hits over his first 7.0 innings pitched. Fortunately, he managed to turn things around when he allowed just three hits in 8.0 IP in the ALCS Game 5 against the Boston Red Sox. Still, Valdez faces a tough task against a Braves team that's been averaging 8.12 hits per game (13th). The southpaw has also given up at least five hits in 60% of his outings this year (regular season + playoffs). Even though he looked good the last time we saw him, history shows that Valdez hasn't figured out how to be consistent just yet.
