The Houston Astros and New York Yankees face off on Thursday in an MLB showdown at Minute Maid Park. 

The Astros come into this game with a 47-27 record overall and they have won two straight games against the New York Mets. Over the last two games the Astros have given up only one run total, and they need the pitching to continue to be strong in this series. The Astros strength all season has been the pitching and they are giving up only 3.35 runs per game which is 1st in the league. The top offensive player has been Yordan Alvarez who has hit 23 home runs and driven in 56 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Yankees who sit with a 56-20 record overall and they have won four games in a row. Over the last two games the Yankees have given up only four runs total, and they need good pitching again in this game. The Yankees offense is ranked second in baseball while the pitching staff is ranked 1st overall. Aaron Judge has hit 29 home runs and driven in 59 RBIs.

On the mound for the Yankees is Luis Severino who sits with a 4-2 record and an ERA of 3.38. In his last start against the Astros, he went six innings giving up five hits and three earned runs. 

On the mound for the Astros is Luis Garcia who sits with a 5-5 record and an ERA of 3.68. In his last start against the Mets, he went five innings giving up six hits and three runs. 

The Yankees are 6-0 in their last six games played on Thursday. The under is 4-0 in Severino’s last four starts on grass. The under is 8-1 in the Astros last nine games played on Thursday. 

These are both pitchers that have good seasons, but this total is a bit too low. Both pitchers are coming off games where they gave up three runs, and especially the Yankees offense is going to find success early here. Look for both offenses to score four or five runs and the over is going to cash.
