Yankees Aaron Judge Background

  • Wager Accomplished Thanks to Judge’s Walk-off.
  • Yankees Cover (-1.5) Once Again With the Win.
  • Yankees Subdue Another Astros’ No-No.

Yankees Net Cash for Lucky Fan

One fan took note of the fact that the New York Yankees, who have been a tough offensive team all year, were no-hit on Saturday evening. The odds on New York struggling at the plate for the third day in a row were not on point. The fan put $306K down on the Yankees (-1.5) on Sunday’s game against Houston and when Aaron Judge blasted that walk-off three-run homer in the 10th, New York covered the spread for the sixth time in the last ten outings.

Thus, the fan took home $330K on an afternoon where Houston broke to an early 3-0 lead after four innings, and the Astros were looking poised to take their third in a row at Yankee Stadium. The Yankees were handed a (-177) line on Sunday which made them the longest favorite since June 14 when Gerrit Cole shut out the Tampa Bay Rays, 2-0, and New York’s line was set at (-209).

Please Note:
New York went 9-1 overall from June 3 – June 14 as the Yankees’ highest moneyline was sitting at (-342) for a 3-0 shut out of the Detroit Tigers on June 4. Seven of those money lines in that period were (-200) or better and the lone loss was on June 8 when the Yankees were favored by (-181) against the Minnesota Twins at Target Field in Minneapolis, Minn.

New York dropped an 8-1 loss that afternoon as the Twins roughed up Nestor Cortes in 4.1 innings.

Yankees’ Offense Struggles in Weekend Split With Houston

The Houston Astros are 7.5 games behind the New York Yankees in the American League race and they really needed to win three of four to serve notice in the four-game set over the weekend.

When New York came back with a 6-3 win thanks to New York outfielder Aaron Judge’s walk-off home run in the 10th inning, it marked how far Houston or really any other AL team has to go to turn the AL into a two-team race that would result in home-field advantage for a team other than the New York Yankees.

On Saturday evening, Houston pitchers Christian Javier, Hector Neris and Ryan Pressly combined to toss the first no-hitter against the Yankees in 19 seasons. The 3-0 win gave Houston a 2-1 lead in the weekend tilt with Sunday offering the potential to give the Astros a weekend that could be underlined later in the season.

Sunday’s needed help never happened for Houston as Judge hit the walk-off three-run homer in the 10th inning to life New York to a 6-3 win and a split in the series.

Yankees Were Looking at Another Potential Houston No-Hitter

New York is averaging 5.03 runs per game, which is second in Major League Baseball, and the Yankees’ 121 home runs lead the sport as of now.

Judge is the team’s leading hitter at .294 while his 28 home runs leads MLB as the Angels’ Mike Trout, the Astros’ Jordan Alvarez and the Mets’ Pete Alonso have all netted 22 round-trippers.

This matchup should give the Astros and their fans reasons to believe as yesterday, Houston pitcher Jose Uquidry had taken a no-hitter for 7.1 innings.

However, Giancarlo Stanton broke up what could have been the second consecutive no-hitter as he homer 436-feet into centerfield in Yankee Stadium.
