Houston is 8-2 in their last 10 road games and 22-6 in their last 28 Thursday games. The under is 10-1-1 in Houston’s last 12 Thursday games. New York is 5-0 in their last 5 Thursday games and 4-0 in their last 4 games against the AL West. The over is 10-3 in New York’s last 13 game one’s of a series. The over is 3-1-1 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings in New York.

This should be a very good pitching matchup between two pitchers with ERA’s below 2.80. Framber Valdez has allowed eight runs over his last 27 innings for the Astros. Jameson Taillon has allowed eight runs over his last 22.2 innings pitched for New York. I like the under in this game with this pitching matchup.
