New York Yankees vs. Houston Astros: 2017 ALCS Prediction, Betting Odds, Preview

Houston Astros

Houston Astros

NY can not afford to fall into a similar deficit in the AL Championship Series, as the Houston Astros are playing World Series-caliber baseball at the moment, particularly on offense. In his 14-5 record during the regular season, Keuchel posted a 2.90 ERA with 125 Ks.

Verlander made only two starts at Minute Maid Park after his trade from the Tigers, but he was almost flawless in them, allowing just one run on four hits in 14 innings, while striking out 16. They were good enough to give Houston 101 regular-season wins, and they only didn't finish with the AL's best record because the Cleveland Indians went on a record-setting winning streak. NY was down 0-2 in the five-game series, but avoided elimination three times. The Indians would eventually win 9-8 in 13 innings, giving them the 2-0 series lead going back to the Bronx.

The Yankees will be facing Dallas Keuchel in Game 1, but it's unknown who Joe Girardi will counter with.

The New York Yankees shocked the world in the American League Division Series, coming back to win three straight games to knock out the AL favorite Cleveland Indians.

-David Robertson came out of the bullpen in the fifth to give NY the first 2 2/3 innings of 4 2/3 innings of no-hit relief.

New York's bullpen is a game-changer. Aaron Judge set a rookie record for home runs, and Gary Sanchez has become the MLB's best hitting catcher.

StubHub.com spokesperson Cameron Papp said about 3,500 tickets for Game 1 and about 4,000 for Game 2 were available on that site as of midafternoon Thursday. He finished the series 8-for-15 with four walks. NY has been propelled by the home run machine, rookie Aaron Judge. After being shut out in the first game in a 4-0 loss, the Yankees went into game two with an 8-3 lead after six innings.

One league MVP candidate is doing his best to secure a pennant for the Astros, while the Yankees' leading slugger is hoping to end his free fall in the ALCS.

The Bombers could also go with Masahiro Tanaka, who has struck out 22 combined in his last two starts, though both of those came at home, where the righty has better splits. Tanaka has been outstanding in his last couple starts and Severino rebounded from a round AL Wild Card outing to slow down Cleveland in Game 3 of the ALCS. The Yankees are good, but they aren't that good, and the Astros won't give Judge time to regroup and catch his breath. NY might win a couple games in the ALCS when hitters like Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez are able to carry them, but ultimately it's hard to envision Houston not winning the series.
