BBB Betting Tips: Yankees vs. Houston Astros (5/2)
After one month of BBBetting, we sit with a positive record of 13-10-1. It was a huge turn around, after starting the season 3-8. Today is the first BBBetting of May, and as always, I anticipate we will start off with an easy win.
New York Yankees @ Houston Astros (5/2)
Luis Severino (4-1, 2.86 ERA) vs. Dallas Keuchel (1-4, 4.00 ERA)
Today should be a fantastic pitcher’s duel in Houston. For those who recall, BBBetting expected a rough outing for Luis Severino his last start in LA. He threw seven strong innings, eight strikeouts, and a no-decision. Hands up, I was wrong on that one. Severino is an absolute stud, and I will not make the mistake of expecting him to bomb again.
Dallas Keuchel on the other side has the potential to be an absolute monster, and really has had the unfortunate Sonny Gray effect. He's had a few high scoring outings but always with minimal run support. Against a Yankee lineup like this, he easily could recreate his last outing and give up another six runs.
I think the interesting part with today’s game is the really low over/under line. Currently it’s sitting at 7.5 runs, which is begging (and working) the public to bet the over. I think with two really good pitchers, and two really good lineups, we should take today to play a different line.
The total hits + runs + errors line is sitting at 26. The Yankees have only sniffed that 26 number once in the past two weeks when they blew out the Angels. With these two pitchers, I don’t foresee anything like that happening. Play the fun total hits + runs + errors line under 26.
Final Call: total hits + runs + errors under 26 (-135)
