Astros vs. Yankees prediction, line: Houston the pick

The Yankees entered into their series with the Houston Astros playing their best baseball of the season, having won five of their last six games, but those wins came against the Baltimore Orioles and Detroit Tigers and the Astros will look to silence the Bronx Bombers on Wednesday.

Despite an 0-3 record, Astros starter Luis Garcia has been solid with a 2.70 ERA while giving up 6.4 hits per nine innings and getting nine strikeouts per nine innings.

Jordan Montgomery will oppose him and look to keep things in the yard as he has given up five home runs in his past four starts, giving up at least three runs in three of those starts, and for the season has posted a 4.39 ERA.

The Yankees entered the series 24th in the league in runs per game and averaging fewer runs per game at home than on the road while hitting .219 at home.

With the Astros leading the league in strikeout percentage, striking out on 19.1 percent of their at-bats while every other team is striking out on at least 22 percent of their at-bats, the Astros should barrel up the Yankees for a road win.

The play: Astros, +130.
