New York Yankees vs Houston Astros: prediction for the MLB game
New York Yankees
The New York Yankees are the strongest side in the American League, at the moment they are way ahead of all their direct opponents. The Yankees are solid on defense and are currently on a 15-game winning streak. The team suffered its last defeat at the Tampa Bay Rays - New York played well and lost by a narrow margin.
The Houston Astros are looking confident this season, but they have been unable to catch up with the Yankees. Before the trip to New York, the Astros lost one out of five games, to the Chicago White Sox (0:7). In the opening game of the current match, the Astros demonstrated solid performance, but were less fortunate and lost with a score of 6:7.
In 4 out of 6 head-to-head games, the teams scored more than 7 runs.
The first inning was tied in the last 5 head-to-head games.
The New York Yankees beat the Astros in the first game of the series, and we think the hosts have a good chance to record another victory in the upcoming game. The Yankees have excellent defense and have not lost in the last 15 games. We doubt this incredible streak will end today.
