Houston Astros vs. New York Yankees Prediction

The Houston Astros vs. the New York Yankees will take place from the Big Apple on Thursday night. These two teams have been two of the best in baseball, and this could very well be an early preview of the American League Championship Series.

The Astros have been one of the best teams in baseball over the last decade, led by their great offense. This is a team with multiple players on this active roster that has won the World Series, and they play with that championship DNA on a daily basis. The Yankees have not won the World Series since 2009, which feels like fifty years for the Yankees. This is the best Yankees team since that 2009 team in the eyes of many. They are on a historic pace led by slugger Aaron Judge who has put up video game-like numbers this season.

Judge has twenty-seven home runs this season to lead the majors. Combine that with the power of Giancarlo Stanton, who has fourteen home runs this season, and this one of the most feared lineups in all of baseball. The difference this season for the Yankees has been their pitching. They have one of the best staffs in all of baseball, and their bullpen has been outstanding. One of those pitchers who has really helped them this year is southpaw Jordan Montgomery. Montgomery will get the baseball tonight for Aaron Boone, looking to shut down this high-powered Astros offense. Fellow lefty Framber Valdez will oppose him. 

I am backing the Yankees tonight on the moneyline. I love this spot at home for the Yankees tonight. We know how good the Yanks have been this year as they are the best team in baseball, but these types of games should bring out the best version of themselves. There is a lot of history between these two teams, and you better believe the Yankees and their fans will be ready to go tonight. It is never fun fading either of these teams, but I will be fading the Astros tonight!
