New York Yankees
Given the fact that they were down 3-0 to Minnesota before their first AB it is pretty surprising that the Yankees are in the ALCS. Having beaten Cleveland no less.
Houston is the target now and you have to give the Yankees a bit more of a chance than against the Indians. It might be novel to think of the Yankees as underdogs but they are still hard to root for.
I liked the pickup of Sonny Gray but he has not been great for New York. He is familiar to the Astros from his time in the AL West, He has had mixed results against the lineup he is likely to see.
I was happy to see the Astros dispatch the Red Sox with relative ease. They have continued their strong regular season play into the playoffs.
Now in the second round they can relax a little more. They were excellent at home this season and their strengths play well in that ballpark.
Dallas Keuchel is especially comfortable at home. His ERA is more than a full run lower at Minute Maid Park this season.

Free New York Yankees vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction:
The Yankees should acquit themselves respectfully in the series but I think they shrink in the first game on the road.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Houston RL
There are very small sample sizes for most Yankees against Keuchel. Still neither Aaron Judge nor Gary Sanchez has a hit and Hicks is the only one to take him yard over the last 5 years.
