Verlander will be on the mound in the 2nd game of the series for the Astros. In 3.2 innings against the White Sox on Saturday, Verlander took the loss after allowing seven runs (four of them earned) on nine hits and no walks while striking out three. He has a record of 8-7 with an ERA of 3.55 and 135 strikeouts in 22 appearances versus the Yankees in his career.

BETTING TRENDS

Houston are 2-5 SU in their last 7 games against NY Yankees.

Houston are 8-3 SU in their last 11 games on the road.

NY Yankees are 12-2 SU in their last 14 games.

NY Yankees are 10-0 SU in their last 10 games at home.

Prediction

The Astros pounded Taillon early in the first of the series but the Bombers came back to tie and win the game in the 9th inning. Houston will send now thier ace Justin Verlander who's coming from a loss against the White Sox where he allowed 4 runs. Severino will start for the Yankees who also struggled in his last start allowing 5 runs in 5 innings. This should be another close game as both starters should be sharp on this game and given how the Astros played on Thursday I think they have the edge with Verlander on the mound. Take the Astros.

PICK: Astros ML (+105)
