Yankees get back to winning

After having their nine-game win streak snapped on Monday, New York bounced back with a 4-0 win on Tuesday despite losing starter Jordan Montgomery after the first inning. New York is now 19-10 overall and 8-5 on the road. The Yankees are scoring 5.79 runs per game this season while allowing 4.07 per contest.

Luis Severnio is getting the start for the Yankees today. He is 4-1 through six starts with a 2.61 ERA and a 0.89 WHIP. Over 38 innings of work, Severnio has 42 strikeouts with 11 walks.

Astros blow Verlander’s start

After eight scoreless innings from Justin Verlander, the Houston pen gave up four runs in the ninth on Tuesday for the 4-0 loss. Houston is now 20-11 on the season and 10-7 at home. The Astros are putting up 4.81 runs per game this season while allowing 2.77 per contest.

Dallas Keuchel is getting the start for the Astros tonight. He has struggled this year, going 1-4 over his six starts. Keuchel has a 4.00 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP. He has pitched 36 innings and has 28 strikeouts with 12 walks.

MLB Betting Trends

New York

The Yankees have won five of their last six road games and 13 of their last 16 overall. They have also won 20 of Severino’s last 26 starts.

Houston

The Astros have won 9 of Keuchel’s last 13 Wednesday starts. However, they are 1-4 in his last five starts against a winning team.

Prediction:

This series has been about pitching and that should be the case again tonight. Severino has been stellar this year and I think he will be able to best Keuchel, who hasn’t been able to find his best stuff this year. New York also has the better hitting on average, so I think the Yankees will be able to grab the victory.

 

The Pick: New York Yankees -115
