Severinus Snape and the Yanks vs Astros MLB betting

Posted by: Mariela Miranda

Luis Severino will have, in game 6 of the American League Championship MLB betting series, a chance to finish what he started in game 2 against the Houston Astros. Severino surrendered one run on two hits in four innings on that occasion before he was, out of an abundance of caution, pulled out after being hit, by a comebacker, on his left wrist. The New York Yankees lost that game but won the next three in the Bronx to take a 3-2 lead in the series.

Judge not lest ye be judged

Right fielder Aaron Judge and catcher Gary Sanchez went a combined 9-for-21 with eight RBIs to help keep the Yankees undefeated at home this postseason, as are the Astros. But let’s let Houston catcher Brian McCann explain. “You see, we won the first two, they won the next three, so we want to go home and keep that trend going.” Thank you, Brian, for that insightful insight. Severino (RHP, 14-6, 2.98 ERA, 230 K) threw a bullpen session on Wednesday without problem, and claims to be “healthy and hungry.” Most clubs that have broken a 2-2 tie in a league championship series since expanding to best-of-seven in 1985 have taken that momentum all the way to the World Series, but only four teams have crawled out of a 0-2 hole to win four straight in a best-of-seven playoff series, and the Yankees could become the fifth – or third, considering two of those four MLB betting teams were past iterations of the Bronx Bombers. “We don’t want to get ahead of ourselves,” Judge said. “We’ve still got a job to do in Houston. We’re going to keep taking it one pitch at a time, and we’ll be where we want to be at the end.”

Justin Verlander used to be a Tiger, now he’s a bulldog

Justin Verlander (RHP, 15-8, 3.36 ERA, 219 K) held the Yankees to one run on five hits (lowering his career postseason ERA to 3.18) and struck out 13 in nine innings in game 2. Verlander has pitched four, of which he has won three, elimination games in his career, and has allowed two runs or less in each of his nine outings since being traded front hw Detroit Tigers. “It’s big to have a guy like that,” Astros outfielder George Springer said. “He isn’t an easy guy to face. He seems to live for the big moment. He competes. He’s a bulldog out there.”

Teams that were behind 3-2 but playing the final two games at home have, in 13 out of 17 best-of-seven series dating back to 1985, come back to win the MLB betting series, including eight who lost Game 5. “The message to this team is going to be, keep fighting the fight,” manager A.J. Hinch said. “This series isn’t over.”
