Colorado Rockies vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction:
The Astros need to start playing better if they wish to stay atop their division. I look for them to look good in this series.
Houston did not play well against the Twins in their past series. I do not seem them having 2 bad series in a row.
The Astros may not crush Gray, but I feel they will do enough against him to get a win.
Give me the Astros on the run line.
