The New York Yankees look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Yankees have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 10 games.

The Astros are 11-5 in their last 16 during game 1 of a series and 6-15 in Feldmans last 21 road starts. The Yankees are 27-13 in their last 40 home games and 6-1 in Eovaldis last 7 starts. The Astros are 3-7 in the last 10 meetings in New York and 7-16 in the last 23 meetings overall.
The Astros have been brutal on the road in the second half of the season and Eovaldi has been nothing but money for the Yankees. Give me the home team at the reasonable price.
