Astros have been red hot the last few games stealing two from the Rangers, two from the Sox, and two big ones from the Mets. In yesterdays 5-3 win vs Mets, Houston rocked 8-2 Carrasco scoring 4 runs in the 1st and 1 run in the 3rd. Houston's bats have been on absolute fire!! Going into tonight's game will be a test for two of the best teams in the AL. Yankees are 51-18 and Astros are 43-25. People need to realize the Yankees cant win every game and after their last few games, teams seem to be hitting their pitching more than we thought.
Below are some statistics and notes I have researched:
*Yankees are striking out almost 25% of the time
*Valdez completed 6 innings 11/13 times, while Taillon has failed to complete 6 in his last 3 games...
*Taillon has 4.07 xFIP which points to regression, while allowing .145 ISO to right and .162 to left, Yordan Alvarez has a killer matchup vs him W/4.09 ISO vs RHP!!!
*Yankees might be without closer as he pitched Monday and Wednesday
As much as I hate both teams and love betting Yankees, I will be fading the Yankees and rolling with the Astros as they are the hotter team coming into this game! I will be rolling with Astros +2.5 and Yordan O 0.5 hits -120 as a safe bet. I do feel like Astros ML can hit as well. If you cant get +2.5, take +1.5 and Alvarez Over 0.5 hits.
PICK: Astros +2.5/ Yordan Alvarez O 0.5 Hits
