The Houston Astros will play the New York Yankees in Game 2 of their series at Yankee Stadium on Friday night.
The Houston Astros are 43-26 this season and have won three of their last four games. Houston lost Game 1 of this series by a score of 7-6 on Thursday. The Houston pitching staff has a 3.10 ERA, a 1.14 WHIP, and a .221 opponent batting average this season. The Astros offense has scored 300 runs with a .240 batting average and a .318 on base percentage. Yordan Alvarez is batting .317 with 22 home runs and 54 RBI’s for the Astros this season. The projected starter for Houston is Justin Verlander, who is 8-3 with a 2.30 ERA and a 0.89 WHIP over 82.1 innings pitched this season.
The New York Yankees are 52-18 this season and have also won three of their last four games. Prior to winning Game 1 of this series, New York won two out of three games in their series against Tampa Bay. The New York pitching staff has a 2.94 ERA, a 1.07 WHIP, and a .214 opponent batting average. The Yankees offense has scored 360 runs with a .245 batting average and a .327 on base percentage this year. Aaron Judge is batting .304 with 27 home runs and 53 RBI’s for the Yankees this season. The projected starter for New York is Luis Severino, who is 4-1 with a 3.27 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP over 66 innings pitched this season.
Houston is 8-3 in their last 11 road games and 83-40 in their last 123 Friday games. The under is 25-11 in Houston’s last 36 road games. New York is 45-12 in their last 57 games and 16-5 in their last 21 Friday games. The under is 5-2-1 in New York’s last 8 game two’s of a series. The over is 4-1-1 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings in New York.
This should be another exciting matchup between two very good teams and two outstanding pitchers. Verlander has been one of the best pitchers in all of baseball this season, but did give up four earned runs over 3.2 innings last time out. Severino allowed five runs over five innings in his last start for the Yankees. I like the under in this game between these two pitchers and Houston has been an under machine on the road.
