Yankees vs Astros Betting Prediction

The Astros have lost the first two games of the season, and it’s not going to be any better here. Hunter Brown wasn’t good in the last game, and it’s going to be a problem again here. Marcus Stroman is going to have a strong start for the Yankees and that will be the difference here as New York is going to get the job done with ease. Back the Yankees to win this game on the money line.
