To WIN 1 UNIT, return to HOUSTON (-155) Valdez has been at home 10-3 since his debut in 2018, including 2-0 in 4 starts and 3-1 in each previous season.

When Valdez is on his mound, the Astros win almost every time. They are currently 6-2 in Valdez’s 8 starts and 7-4 in his 11 previous starts.

Taillon may be on a 3-game winning streak but the Yankees are only 7-9 in 16 of his starts this season. He’s also 1-3 on the road and 1-2 away in 2020.
