New York will have Luis Severino on the mound as the Yankees look to join the Los Angeles Dodgers for this year's MLB World Series. Severino was taken out of the game in just four innings of work in Game #1 against the Houston Astros after getting hit on the wrist by a comebacker. Before being replaced by Tommy Kahnle, Serverino looked really sharp and I expect him to have a quality start. Servino will be on 5 days of rest and I expect he will pitch 7-8 innings deep tonight. Yankees are 13-3 in Severinos last 16 starts with 5 days of rest.
The offense is finally clicking for the Yankees and their bullpen is holding up to their end of the bargain. The middle order of the Yankees has been so clutch in this series, Judge, Sanchez, and Gregorius went a combined 5 for 11 with four RBI's. The Yankees have outscored the Astros 19-5 at home and will bring plenty of momentum into this game. Justin Verlander will be facing the Yankees for the first time this season and I think many bettors are using this as a reason to bet on the Astros. Verlander has a 6-7 record with a 3.87 ERA in 18 career appearances against the Yankees.
5 Yankees 3 Astros
Pick: New York Yankees ML (+130)
Best of luck!
