The Houston Astros look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Astros have scored 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 10 games. The Astros have won eight straight games when scoring more than three runs. Jose Altuve leads Houston with 76 hits and 29 RBI while Evan Gattis and Luis Valbuena have combined for 78 RBI. The Houston Astros have won five of their last seven home games. Dallas Keuchel takes the hill, and he’s 8-3 with a 2.35 ERA and 83 strikeouts this season. This will be Keuchel’s second career game against the Yankees.
The Yankees are 5-2 in their last 7 games as an underdog and 4-1 in Warrens last 5 starts. The Astros are 5-2 in their last 7 games as a home favorite and 15-5 in Keuchels last 20 starts. The Yankees are 7-2 in the last 9 meetings in Houston and 14-5 in the last 19 meetings overall.
Although the Astros have the advantage with this pitching matchup, the Yanks are tearing the cover off the ball right now. I like the value of the plus money in this spot.
