AAA’s AFTERNOON AMERICAN LEAGUE “ASSASSIN!”
NY Yankees vs. Houston,

Score: 6 - 5
Money Line: -121 Houston
This is an 8* ASSASSIN on the Houston Astros.
We don’t think that home field advantage can be overlooked in this particular matchup. The visitors hand the ball to Masahiro Tanaka (4-2, 4.37 ERA) who looks poised for a letdown here in our opinion off a gem against the Angels on Saturday, giving up one run off two hits and two walks over six frames. Note that Tanaka was a poor 4-7 with a 6.48 ERA on the road last year. The home side counters with Lance McCullers (4-1, 3.71) who gave up two hits and walked none while striking out seven over seven scoreless to earn a win against the A’s on Saturday. It was McCullers third straight strong start; note that he owns a 1.50 ERA at home this season. We like McCullers to take advantage of familiar surroundings and to get the better of his counterpart today. Great price, play on the ASTROS.
