Yankees vs Astros Betting Lines

 

 

Yankees vs Astros Best Pick: Yankees +123

Placing a bet on the Yankees to win against the Astros seems like a smart move, considering the current scenario. Game 3 looks close, but there are several reasons why the Yankees have the upper hand.

The key to the game could be Stroman’s performance. It would set the tone for the whole game if he starts strong. In their last game, the Yankees showed off their hitting skills with 11 team hits. Oswaldo Cabrera stood out by getting four hits and driving in three runs, while Juan Soto added three hits and an RBI.

The Astros had a hard time keeping the Yankees’ hitters in check, with three of their four relief pitchers allowing at least two runs. While the upcoming game might not have as much drama as their last encounter, the Yankees look well-positioned for another win. Their strong offense and strategic gameplay make betting on them a good choice.

You could add the Yankees to your MLB picks against the spread today, but I prefer the value on an outright upset in Game 3.

 

 

Yankees vs Astros Prop Pick: Marcus Stroman Under 3.5 Strikeouts (-106)

Betting on Marcus Stroman to get fewer than 3.5 strikeouts against the Astros is a smart move. Stroman is known for his ground-ball pitching, not his strikeouts. Last season, he managed to keep his opponents’ power in check but only struck out about 21% of batters, relying on a 57.4% ground ball rate.

The Astros, with their lineup, present a tough challenge. They had a low strikeout rate of 20% against right-handed pitchers last season, showcasing their ability to handle pitchers like Stroman. Given Stroman’s tendency to induce ground balls over strikeouts and the Astros’ strong performance against righties, betting on Stroman to go under 3.5 strikeouts in his Yankees debut seems like a solid bet.
