New York is 36-16 in their last 52 Wednesday games and 1-4 in their last 5 ALCS games. The under is 19-9-1 in New York’s last 29 road games. Houston is 7-1 in their last 8 Wednesday games and 4-1 in their last 5 playoff games. The under is 7-2-1 in Houston’s last 10 playoff games. The under is 4-1-1 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.

New York had to play yesterday after their original date for Game 5 was postponed due to weather, meaning they will not get a day off between series. Houston has been waiting since Saturday, when they defeated Seattle in 18 innings. Both of these pitchers have struggled this postseason and will have to face very dangerous lineups in this matchup. I like the over in this game.
