Offense on Display in Game One
Both teams have high-powered offenses no matter who takes the ball for the Yankees as we preview the Yankees vs Astros series game odds to begin this series.
These two teams couldn’t be more evenly matched from a betting perspective as was mentioned earlier, but even when we gaze at the odds to win a World Series there isn’t much separation. New York (+300) is either a favorite or co-favorite in most books, while the Astros (+450) are the third choice behind the Dodgers. New York owns the top offense in baseball, averaging almost five and a half runs a game. Houston is just 14th in runs per game but they are one of the most dangerous lineups in baseball with 128 homers.
Bettors Taking Safe Route in Game One
Early betting in this one has been predictable but reckless. So far, the betting public has looked at the Yankees vs Astros game series odds and decided that they’re going to take the safe route by placing their money on the Yankees and the run-line. That’s a safe option but the problem is, you have to give up -194 to be the odds-on favorite to win the World Series. We’re in the business of building a bankroll and laying that much money is a good way to get the second half of the season off to a losing start. Betting the Bronx Bombers has been kind to the public this year but hold off until the New York Yankees odds are bankroll friendly.
Yankees, Astros Game One Betting Odds Provide One Option
There are no numbers posted on game two, but game one gives a chance to get a decent total of eight with two teams that can put up runs quickly. It’s easy to grab the run and a half with New York but there will be plenty of chances to bet the World Series favorites when the Yankee odds are better.
This is a marathon and we’re just halfway through, so let’s grab the over in game one while properly managing our money. Yankees vs Astros Series Game odds is always worth pursuing as a baseball bettor. Take a hard look at what suits you best in this series and fire away.Follow us on Twitter
