Schule's TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE
NY Yankees vs. Houston,
05/02/2018 20:10 EDT,
Score: 4 - 0
Point Spread: +1½/-144 Houston
This is an 8* play on the Houston Astros +1.5.
The Yankees are on a roll, but I am not quite ready to accept that they should be a favorite on the road against the defending World Series champs. Dallas Keuchel hasn't had a great start to the season, but his numbers in Houston over the last three seasons are nothing short of incredible.
Keuchel (1-4, 4.00 ERA) was torched for six runs on seven hits in seven innings in a home loss to Oakland his last time out. His other three losses all came on the road, and he's 25-9 with a 2.29 ERA in his last 43 starts at Minutemaid Park.
The Yankees hand the ball to Luis Severino, and the 24 year old has been lights out this season. He was 0-1 with a 10.57 ERA in two starts against Houston last season.
The Astros lineup is batting .395 over a combined 38 at bats versus Severino.
