UNDER the Hot Bet When the Yanks Travel to Houston

The New York Yankees are still trying to establish their dominance in the AL East, and a series victory over the AL-leading Houston Astros would go a long way to doing that. Sportsbooks opened the ’Stros as -137 home favorites with a total of 9.5.

Shark Bites
  • The OVER is 4-1 in the Astros' last 5 home games.
  • The Yankees are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Houston.
  • The Yankees are 4-1 in Jordan Montgomery's last 5 starts.

Jordan Montgomery and Francis Martes will get the start for the Yanks and Astros, respectively. Montgomery (6-4, 3.53 ERA) has won four straight starts and shut down the Chicago White Sox in his last appearance when he gave up one run and five hits over seven innings of work.

Martes (2-0, 5.51) won his first two major-league starts but ran into a speed bump in his third while escaping with a no-decision against Seattle on Sunday. The 21-year-old has registered 16 strikeouts in 16 1/3 frames but has also allowed 11 free passes in that span.

UNDER bettors have been profiting in a big way when these teams collide in Texas of late. In the last 14 meetings between the Yankees and Astros in Houston, the UNDER is 11-3.
