MLB Baseball Gambling Total: 10
Houston won the series opener last night. They jumped all over starter Martin Perez and then coasted in a 7-1 win. They are 7-3 in their last 10 and are just a half-game back of Oakland in the AL West.
Jake Odorizzi moves around a lot. He has not found a rhythm with Houston yet though. He is striking guys out so I do think he eventually settles in and is productive. This is a tough spot though.
The Houston bullpen has not been a strength this season. They just don’t have those massive arms that intimidate and the results are below average. They did pitch well in support of Framber Valdez yesterday though.
Boston Red Sox
Boston has one of the best offenses in the Majors so it was a surprise they started the series with a whimper scoring just one run against Valdez. Normally that lineup is very good against lefties.
Nathan Eovaldi has seven wins this season and that has him tied with a bunch of others for second the Majors. His other stats are ordinary though and he pitched better away from Fenway Park. Not really a surprise.
Boston has had one of the best bullpens this season even though the only arm we all know is closer Matt Barnes. That is only of value when the team has the lead though so the lineup and starters need to do better.

Free Houston Astros vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction: under.
I do like Houston as a plus value to take the second game of this series but the bet I like even more is the over. Yesterday we got 8 runs even though most of the scoring was done early. With these starters likely to get hit hard and expose the middle relief I think the over play is the way to go in Boston tonight.
