Why Houston Astros are a good bet +100?

Behind yet another awesome performance from Gerrit Cole on Tuesday, the Houston Astros took a 2-1 series lead over the New York Yankees. Houston has a chance on Wednesday, depending on whether Major League Baseball decides to delay, push the game to tomorrow, or wait out the expected storm system, to go up 3-1. A.J. Hinch has plenty of advantages in this game, including which pitcher to start. Hinch has, so far, pulled the right levers in two straight. There’s no reason to believe he doesn’t pull the right lever on Wednesday.

Why New York Yankees are a good bet at -120?

When the Yankees backs are against the wall, they respond. Not only that, but the Astros have 3 choices of starting pitchers on Wednesday night: Zack Greinke off short rest, Jose Urquidy, who gave up 3 hits in 1.2 innings of work against the Tampa Bay Rays in a 3-10 Houston loss during the ALDS, or Wade Miley. The Yankees have had great success against both Greinke and Miley. They should hit well against Urquidy. No matter who starts for Houston, the Yankees should have a good night at the plate.

ALCS Game 4 Astros vs Yankees Betting Analysis

Neither team has stated who will start, mainly, because of the weather situation. MLB might try to wait out the weather tonight so that they don’t have to push things further out into the future. If that happens, expect A.J. Hinch to send Wade Miley to the mound. Zack Greinke pitched on Oct. 12. That’s only 4 days ago. Hinch won’t want to pressure Greinke knowing Zack hasn’t had his best stuff.

Can Miley get the job done? Possibly, because Aaron Boone is in the same boat as Hinch. He must start either Masahiro Tanaka on short rest or J.A. Happ, whom Houston averages a .297 batting average against. No matter what happens, Hinch has the advantage over Boone when it comes to the starting rotation and the bullpen. Take the Astros once MLB makes a decision on what to do about tonight’s game.
