Houston is 10-4 in their last 14 road games and 35-16 in their last 51 Tuesday games. The over is 6-1 in Houston’s last 7 game one’s of a series. New York is 20-6 in their last 26 game one’s of a series and 12-4 in their last 16 Tuesday games. The over is 5-1 in New York’s last 6 game one’s of a series. The over is 4-1-1 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.

This should be a very entertaining series between two very good teams. In Game 1, we have Carrasco against Valdez on the mound. Carrasco has been inconsistent and has allowed five runs in two of his last three starts. Valdez has been very good and has thrown five consecutive quality starts. I am going with the over in this matchup as both teams have been consistently hitting the over to start their series.
