The Houston Astros are by far the biggest exposure of the day in Major League Baseball with a larger than usual Monday slate due to the Memorial Day holiday.

The Astros were coming in at around -128, making the Yankees a rare home underdog at +118.

The Yankees won the last three meetings between these two teams, all on the road, while the home team won the previous seven.

PITCHING MATCHUP: Astros RH Justin Verlander (6-2, 1.08 ERA) vs. Yankees RH Domingo German (0-2, 5.59)

Verlander is only 2-2 in his five starts this month despite allowing a total of four runs (three earned) in that span, but he won his second straight by limiting San Francisco to one run on three hits in six innings on Wednesday.  He is 1-4 with a 4.38 ERA at the new Yankee Stadium.

German has struggled since a brilliant performance in his first career start on May 6, when he did not allow a hit and struck out nine against Cleveland.  He worked four scoreless innings in Houston May 1.
