Houston may have the best record in the league but they keep finding new ways to impress. Case in point their huge outburst on Monday night to steal a road game after being down 8-2 after 7 innings against Minnesota. They are cruising through the first quarter of the season. It has been a total team effort too not just one player carrying the club.
Joe Musgrove made 10 starts last season and has made 10 this season too – his 2016 numbers were better. However, he is coming off his best start of the season, 7 shutout innings against a good Baltimore lineup, with no walks. He seems to be the kind of pitcher that just has to trust his stuff. Navigating the Minnesota lineup won’t be as challenging.
Minnesota has surprised everyone this season but perhaps the gig is up. They are scoring high on the defensive metrics and that is helping the pitching staff but how long can they really keep it up. Their lineup has only a couple of hitters that you really need to worry about and the pitching staff may not be even that deep.
Hector Santiago is having a mediocre season. When he was with the White Sox he seemed to be a hard luck guy but now I think he is just a guy who average and maybe even that would be a stretch. He made a rare emergency relief appearance a few days ago and it did not go well. I am sure that is not helping with his overall ability to produce what is needed.

Free Houston Astros vs. Minnesota Twins MLB Prediction:
The pitching matchup is probably even here so Houston will have to be the favourite when this line is posted. Especially if they also win on Tuesday and could be in position for a sweep.

The value with Houston is going to be tougher and tougher to find. It is probably gone when Keuchel or McCullers is on the fill but with Musgrove you might still be able to find some situations where the plays still make some sense.
