Analysis

New York Yankees @ Houston Astros - Thursday, July 21st, 2022

The New York Yankees are playing some of the best baseball in the whole history of the sport.

Largely due to the fact they have multiple able hitters paired with some great pitching, you have yourself one of the most complete squads in all the majors.

They are currently sitting at the top spot in the AL East with over ten games ahead on anyone else wanting to catch up.

Aaron Judge continues to light up the field with clutch hits and home runs that have put the faith back into Yankee Stadium.

Gerrit Cole and his pitching staff continue to bring elite stuff day in and day out which makes everyone’s job easier.

Overall, this team has the talent to win the world series, and this will be a huge test of their willpower.

Having already faced the Astros in a tough four game series earlier in the year, the Yankees will want to get revenge and make sure their dominance is known.

Astros fans know that their team is capable of being the best team in the world once again and they have a further chance to make their case known this upcoming week.

Jose Altuve and the offense is finally picking up from where it left off in 2021 and there are several hitters that pose threats to opposing pitchers.

Stealing the series from the Yankees at the home environment could be crucial for future endeavors.

Prediction - Astros Money Line in a clash between two of the best currently

San Francisco Giants @ Los Angeles Dodgers - Friday, July 22nd, 2022

This game will mark the start of another series between the California rivals in Los Angeles and San Francisco.

The Giants are currently on a downswing and need to get hot quickly before the division race gets further out of hand.

Hitting and pitching have gone hand in hand to quickly deflate the Giants hype train for the year.

Good offense only comes in spurts so the need to find consistency within the lineup is something key to look out for in this series.
