While there are still three games to be played to decide which teams advance to the American and National League Championship, tickets are available for all teams on the secondary ticket market. Most teams have already put their LCS tickets on sales, which means that the secondary ticket market is the best option to see the Yankees and some combination of the Astros, Rays, Cardinals, Dodgers, Braves, Nationals. Right now, the Nationals have the most expensive of any potential team, with the Yankees and Cardinals 2nd and 3rd. The Braves have the cheapest tickets for any potential LCS games at Suntrust Field.
With the Astros returning home tied 1-1, they'll potentially have an opportunity to secure a 2nd straight World Series berth during Thursday's Game 5. Due to the circumstances, secondary market ticket demand in Houston has unsurprisingly increased.
The average asking price for ALCS tickets at Minute Maid Park has increased 10.5% from $276 before the series began, to $305 as of Monday morning.
Even with the increase, average listing price is still 28% below Astros 2017 ALCS tickets vs the Yankees ($425).
Cheapest ticket currently listed for Game 3 is $129, Game 4 is $138, and Game 5 (currently the potential series clincher) is $151.
While it's easy to assume that secondary market ticket demand would increase for Games 3, 4, and 5 in LA; we here at TicketIQ have seen the opposite.
The average asking price for NLCS tickets at Dodger Stadium has actually decreased 28% from $214 on October 11th to $153 as of the morning of October 14th. Cheapest ticket listed is $71, $74, and $67 respectively.
That $153 average price is by far the cheapest of the Dodgers NLCS trilogy ($375 in 2017 and $339 in 2016) and is now the cheapest LCS we've tracked since 2011 (previous low being Detroit's $188 average in 2013).
