Houston Astros vs. New York Yankees Betting Analysis

The New York Yankees host the Houston Astros at Yankee Stadium for Game second of a four-game series on Friday, June 24, 2022.

Houston Astros vs. New York Yankees Betting Prediction

The Houston Astros enter this matchup first in the AL West standings with a 10 and a half game lead over the second-place Texas Rangers. The Astros went 2-0 SU in their most recent series against the Mets and have won seven of their last 10 games, but lost game-one of this series 7-6 on Thursday night. The Astros bullpen blew a 6-3 lead in the bottom of the ninth inning, giving up four hits and four runs. Aside from Thursday, Houston has been great over their last 10 games, averaging six runs per game and a team ERA of 3.74. The first baseman Yordan Alvarez has been a big part of the offense's success with a batting average of .315 (69-219), 21 home runs, and 51 RBIs.  

New York is currently first in the AL East standings, 11.5 games ahead of the second place Toronto Blue Jays. The Yankees won two of three in their most recent series against Tampa Bay and have won and have won eight of their last 10 games. The Yankees secured game-one of this series thanks to a game tying three-run shot by Aaron Hicks in the bottom of the ninth followed by New Yorks ninth walk off hit of the season a few batters later. The Yankees are having a fantastic season and lead the league in both runs per game (6.0) and team ERA (2.93).  

I like the value in the Astros moneyline with Justin Verlander (8-3) taking the mound. Verlander has an ERA of 2.30 this season and should be able to give the Yankees offense a run for their money. Luis Severino will get the start for the Yankees. Severino has been solid this season with an ERA of 3.27, but the Astros bats have been hot as of late. Backing the Astros moneyline here. 

Score Prediction: Astros 6, Yankees 4
