Ben Rolfe picks his best bet for tonight's MLB playoff action

The World Series might not be far away now. The NLCS is already wrapped up and now the Houston Astros have a 3-1 lead over the New York Yankees with Justin Verlander due up on the mound next.

Here are Today’s MLB Picks:

Houston Astros @ New York Yankees

1u – Houston Astros ML @ +120

- Justin Verlander has allowed two or less earned runs in two of his three starts in these playoffs

- James Paxton has allowed four earned runs in just seven innings this postseason.

This line does not make sense to me. Yes, the Yankees are at home, yes, it is a must-win game for New York, and finally, yes, Verlander struggled in his road game against Tampa Bay. However, this is Verlander against Paxton, and I am taking Verlander and the Astros every single time in that situation, especially if I can get plus money on him. The Yankees might win this with their backs pressed tight to the wall, but even so there is no way I would regret picking Verlander with positive odds. He is just simply too good.
