It appears a lot more fans will be cheering for the Philadelphia Phillies over the Houston Astros in the 2022 World Series.

A map created by using geotagged Twitter data gathered since the matchup was set, including over 105,000 tweets containing official fan hashtags, shows the Phillies are favored in 44 states, while the Astros are favored in six.

Support for the Astros has increased since last year, though, as only three states were rooting for Houston in the 2021 World Series.

Game 1 of the World Series is scheduled for Friday night in Houston.
