The Houston Astros are the best team in the majors again this season. The team is complete from top to bottom, but could use another arm in the bullpen for extra support. The Astros will be looking to get the bats going after yesterday’s loss.
Today, Justin Verlander (9-3, 1.82 ERA) will take the mound against the Rays. Verlander has faced the Rays once this season, getting a no decision. He pitched six innings, allowing six hits and one run. The Rays hit .231 against him in that start.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Tampa Bay Rays are one of the more competitive teams in the majors. Despite their lack of a big name in the lineup, the team plays hard every game. If the Rays are going to get it done against Houston, they must hit off Verlander.
The Tampa Bay Rays are going to start, Ryan Stanek (1-1, 1.85 ERA). Stanek has seen the Astros lineup three times this season (two starts). He has pitched a combined four innings, allowing no runs, no hits and two walks.

Free Houston Astros vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction:
This game is going to be closer than people think. Look for Justin Verlander to pitch well, but give up some early runs. Ryan Stanek could possibly shut down the Astros lineup until he is pulled. Take the Astros for the close in.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER 7
Both pitchers have performed well against each others lineups this year. Look the Astros to ride Verlander’s arm until the seventh or eight inning. Not many runs will be scored in this one. Take the Astros for the win.
