Yankees Favorites Over Astros

The New York Yankees have been surpassed by the Toronto Blue Jays as the team atop the AL East. Now every win matters for the Yanks as they try and reverse their slump that they have been in since the beginning of July.

Since July, New York is 5-17 on the road and have hit the UNDER in 15 out of 22 games, meaning their hitting is lacking.

The Yankees are -135-point favorites tonight against the Houston Astros.

Scott Feldman is 5-5 with a 4.05 ERA and will take the ball for the Astros. He has put in a quality start in all but one of his last 10 starts away from Houston. Feldman leads teams to the UNDER in seven of his last ten outings. He holds teams to an average of 3.3 runs per game.

Nathan Eovaldi will take the mound for the Yankees. Eovaldi is 13-2 with a 4.24 ERA this season. Eovaldi’s numbers have been padded thanks to the Yankees offense who average 6.4 runs a game when Eovaldi is on the mound.

The total is set at 8.5 runs. The UNDER has been hit 11 times in these two teams last 13 meetings.

The game starts at 7:05 p.m. ET.
