New York Yankees vs. Houston Astros: 2017 ALCS Prediction, Betting Odds, Preview

New York Yankees vs. Houston Astros: 2017 ALCS Prediction, Betting Odds, Preview

He attributed that to the attraction of the Yankees plus the certainty of knowing that the first two games of the series would be played in Houston. Houston pitchers this season have actually quelled Judge.

The Astros, by virtue of winning their ALDS in four, will have been off for three days before they face NY, giving their bullpen (which certainly wasn't overtaxed) time to regroup.

The median ticket price for Game 1 increased by 47 percent overnight, and Game 2 prices went up by 43 percent on SeatGeek. Cleveland last lost a third straight game on August 1. In his 14-5 record during the regular season, Keuchel posted a 2.90 ERA with 125 Ks. In his 162.2 innings and 10-12 record this year, Gray put up a 3.54 ERA with 153 Ks.

The Astros boast some big hitters this year.

The feat is indeed quite remarkable, and shows that Martial is moving on well from the struggles of last season. The forward has scored five goals and made six assists in all competitions for Jose Mourinho's men this term.

Dallas Keuchel will pitch Game 1 and Verlander Game 2 for the Astros.

-David Robertson came out of the bullpen in the fifth to give NY the first 2 2/3 innings of 4 2/3 innings of no-hit relief. He then notched two wins over the Red Sox, one as a starter and the other in the first relief appearance of his 13-year career, allowing three runs in 8 2/3 innings. He finished the series 8-for-15 with four walks. However, as it seemed like the Cubs would come away with game two as they had a 3-1 lead in the bottom of the eighth, Washington unraveled the faults in their bullpen as outfielder Bryce Harper crushed a towering two-run homer to tie the game, followed by first basemen Ryan Zimmerman hitting a go-ahead, three-run blast later to make it 6-3 Nationals, which would be the final score. Gardner had three hits, a run and a key RBI in the ninth on Wednesday in Game 5, but Judge came up empty 0-for-5 with four Ks. It was Frazier, still fairly new to the club, who said before all of them, "We have your back". Carlos Correa and Alex Bregman both had two home runs to help lead Houston to the series win.

I'm not so sure the Houston Astros are glad the Yankees won.

It is also a story of divergent underdogs, with the Wild Card-winning Yankees regularly rebuilding and rebooting on the run this season to reach their first ALCS since 2012. But the lineup of the Astros is a minefield to navigate through and it's hard to see them being slowed down for an entire series as Boston found out very quickly. NY might win a couple games in the ALCS when hitters like Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez are able to carry them, but ultimately it's hard to envision Houston not winning the series.
