Houston are 8-0 SU in their last 8 games.
Houston are 6-0 SU in their last 6 games against NY Yankees.
Houston are 11-2 SU in their last 13 games on the road.
Houston are 4-2 SU in their last 6 games when playing on the road against NY Yankees.
NY Yankees are 2-5 SU in their last 7 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 5 of NY Yankees' last 6 games against Houston.
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of NY Yankees' last 5 games at home.
NY Yankees are 2-4 SU in their last 6 games when playing at home against Houston.
The Astros continue to dominate the Yankees beating them in the last 6 meetings and are just one win away from eliminate them. Lance McCullers will take the mound for this game who has been pretty solid lately and has allowed only 1 run in his last 2 starts but hasn't faced the Yankees since last season. Nestor Cortes will start for the Yanks who has also been solid this season but allowed 3 runs against the Astros the last time he faced them. The Yankees offense has been dominated by the Astros bullpen and with Cortes starting for the bombers I expect another low scoring game. Take the under.
PICK: Under 6.5 (-110)
