MatchupL. Severino (Yankees) vs. F. Valdez (Astros)
First Pitch7:37 p.m. ET

Luis Severino finished the season 15-3 to the NRFI with a proficient 7-1 road NRFI split. Here is how he has done in the past against some of these Astros hitters:

  • Alex Bregman: 3-for-18
  • Jose Altuve: 2-for-7
  • Kyle Tucker: 1-for-5
  • Yordan Alvarez: 1-for-3

Impressively, Severino has absolutely dominated leadoff hitters. In 51 at-bats he’s only allowed seven hits, which is good for a .137 average.

The Astros will counter with Framber Valdez, who finished the season 25-6 to the NRFI with a 10-4 home NRFI split.

Valdez's most notable matchups today are against Giancarlo Stanton, who is 6-for-8, Aaron Judge, who is 1-for-5 and Gleyber Torres, who is 2-for-8.

Like Severino, Valdez also performed extremely well against leadoff hitters as in 94 at-bats he’s only issued 17 hits, which is good for a .181 average.

These two teams achieved the NRFI Wednesday and today we will have a better combination of pitchers. FanDuel priced this NRFI at -128 while I have it priced at -135, leaving an advantage to the NRFI.

Pick: NRFI (-128 at FanDuel)
