- Nestor Cortes Jr. Under 4.5 Strikeouts -155
Cortes is the exact type of pitcher the Astros hit well. He had 2 strikeouts and 3 strikeouts in his games against the Guardians and the Astros are very similar in terms of how little they strikeout.
- Nestor Cortes Jr. Over 1.5 Earned Runs Allowed -140
I think he allows at least two runs in this game with how well the Astros hit lefties. They scored 3 off him when they faced him earlier this season. He’s been walking batters as well, I think the Astros are able to get plenty of baserunners off him today.
- Jose Trevino Under 0.5 Total Bases +100
No reason to get off this play, he is 0 for 5 in his career against McCullers and 1 for 18 this postseason. He is batting at the bottom of the order so he shouldn’t have more than 3 at bats.
- Oswaldo Cabrera Under 0.5 Total Bases -140
Cabrera has never seen McCullers so I think it will take him a couple at bats to see his stuff. He is also just 2 for 24 this postseason with his only two hits coming in the same game. He has looked completely lost after being the Yankees hottest hitter to end the season. The off time did not do him well.
