Texas is 4-0 in their last 4 games and 21-54 in their last 75 road games. The under is 8-3 in Texas’ last 11 games. New York is 7-0 in their last 7 home games and 27-11 in their last 38 games. The over is 4-1 in New York’s last 5 home games. Texas is 0-6 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.

The Yankees have been on an absolute roll over their last 12 games, but are coming off of a loss. Texas has also been playing well and comes into this game on a four game winning streak. Gerrit Cole has not allowed a run in his last two starts and has looked very good. I like the Yankees to win the game by a couple of runs.
