The total has gone UNDER in 6 of NY Yankees' last 8 games.
NY Yankees are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games against Houston.
NY Yankees are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games on the road.
NY Yankees are 0-5 SU in their last 5 games when playing on the road against Houston.
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Houston's last 5 games.
Houston are 6-0 SU in their last 6 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Houston's last 7 games against NY Yankees.
Houston are 5-0 SU in their last 5 games at home.
The Astros continue to dominate the Yankees at home as they have won the last 5 head to head games at the Minute Maid Park. Framber valdez will take the mound for this game who has been solid lately allowing only 2 runs in his last 10.2 innings pitched but allowed 3 runs the lasst time he faced the Yankees. Luis Severino will start for the Yanks who struggled in his last start and the Yankees have lost twice vs Astros this season with him on the mound. I think both offenses will hit these pitches and with the total set in 7 I like the over.
PICK: Over 7 (-110)
