Stephen Nover's MLB Wednesday Underdog Special
NY Yankees vs. Houston,
05/02/2018 20:10 EDT,
Score: 4 - 0
Money Line: +111 Houston
The chance to get Dallas Keuchel as an underdog is too much to pass up.
Keuchel was back on track in two starts before his last outing. I see him bouncing back against the Yankees, a foe he has dominated. Keuchel is 4-2 with a 1.41 ERA in six career regular season starts versus New York and 2-1 with a 2.04 ERA in three career playoff starts against the Yankees.
Houston has won 71 percent of Keuchel's last 52 home starts. The Yankees are 1-7 in their past eight games at Minute Maid Stadium.
Yankees starter Luis Severino emerged as a star last season. My handicap is based far more on Keuchel and the Astros than a fade on Severino. However, Sevrino is 0-1 with an 8.38 ERA in three career appearances against the Astros.
