NY Yankees vs. Houston,

Score: 6 - 5
Money Line: -121 Houston
*3 Star Play on Astros ML* The Houston Astros look to avoid a 3 game losing streak on Thursday afternoon. The defending World Series champs are still a tremendous team, and it will be very rare to see them at this price level on their home field this year.
Masahiro Tanaka's short history against the Astros is about as bad as it could possibly be. Tanaka has a brutal 10.38 ERA in four career starts against Houston. The Astros lineup has an unreal weighted on base average of .510 against him, and they have 7 homers in only 47 at bats.
Lance McCullers Jr. can be shaky on the road, but he has been amazing at home. McCullers has a 2.33 ERA at home vs. a 4.97 ERA on the road in his career. He is in great form of late.
The Astros are a perfect 8-0 in McCullers last 8 starts when coming off a quality start. He's a streaky pitcher, and he's throwing it well of late.
Take Houston here.
