Houston Astros vs. New York Yankees

Money Line Pick

New York will be trying to tie this series up at home where they’ll be throwing out their ace Masahiro Tanaka to oppose Houston’s Zack Greinke. New York got the better of Greinke in his last start where he went 6 innings and gave up 3 earned runs, while he posted a 1.17 WHIP to go with 6 strikeouts. He has fared well against New York though where in 18.2 innings of work against them this season, he’s only given up 6 earned runs to go with 20 strikeouts. Tanaka will be looking for a repeat performance against Houston where he pitched 6 scoreless innings, while he struck out 4 batters. Greinke hasn’t been that hot where he’s given up 9 earned runs in his last 2 starts, but has struck out 11 batters. New York has won 8 of their last 11 matchups against Houston. Tanaka proved to be in good form, while Greinke has been off in the playoffs. Rolling with New York’s potent lineup to come alive here against Greinke and Houston at home.
