People hate the Yankees for a reason: they always seem to have the best team in October. This year, the proof is in the numbers.

New York has scored the most runs despite playing fewer games than four other teams in the playoffs. The Yankees also have the highest batting average of OPS in the entire postseason, but they aren't just getting the job done on offense. The team has the lowest ERA among all playoff teams.

The Astros may have gotten the better of them in the regular season, but the playoffs are where it matters. The Yankees are too hot for Houston to stop.

The Yankees might have the best team in the playoffs, but history matters, and the Astros have proved they can beat New York. Not only did Houston win the regular season series against the Yankees, but it also won against the pinstripes in the ALCS two years ago.

The Astros have gotten the best of New York the last few years and they have the magic to do it again this year.
