The baseball divisional standings are often set in stone at this stage of the season, with one team often dominating in each division. The good news for baseball betting fans this year is that there isn’t much of that going on, and it looks as though the majority of the races are going to go down to the wire. The Houston Astros and New York Yankees both have a fight on their hands, and they will meet in the Big Apple on Tuesday night in what promises to be a great series.
A Brief Look at the Houston Astros vs NY Yankees Baseball Betting Odds Matchup & TV InfoDate/Time: Tuesday, August 25th, 7:05 PMVenue: Yankee Stadium, Bronx, NYTV: ROOT SPORTS, MLBNRadio: KBME 790, KLAT 1010Opening line: Houston -115Dallas Keuchel (14-6, 2.37 ERA) will get the start for the Astros on Tuesday. His numbers really do speak for themselves this season.It was something of a strange week for the Yankees (68-55), as they got the division lead back, lost it, and also lost a couple of key players in the process. New York were on a high after taking down the Blue Jays to once again assume control of the AL East, and it looked as though they were about to go on a roll, sweeping the Twins to start the week. That all fell apart, though, when they dropped 3 of 4 to the Cleveland Indians over the weekend, losing the services of Mark Texeira and CC Sabathia in the process. Those two veteran were going to be crucial to the Yankees in the stretch run, so it’s going to be interesting to see how this team handles those losses, as well as being behind the Blue Jays once again. Ivan Nova (5-5, 3.72 ERA) will be the man in charge of trying to slow down the high flying Astros.
