Th Houston Astros continue to be my lead pick for the World Series this season. The numbers they have put up on offense have been amazing. First in runs scored (480) first in batting average (.282).
Some critics say the Astros need another strong pitcher to add to the rotation, but the Astros staff ranks fifth in ERA (3.91).
Lance McCullers Jr. (7-1, 2.69 ERA) takes the mound for the Astros. McCullers has been one of the best pitchers in the AL this season. He was given a beating in his last start on June 30th, at Yankee Stadium.
He pitched five innings, allowing six hits, three runs (all earned) two walks and six strikeouts.
That is a decent day for some guys, but McCullers is an all start level pitcher with elite talent.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Blue Jays are headed back home after winning a three game series against the New York Yankees 2 games to 1. Including a thriller in yesterday’s 7-6 win.
Dellin Bestances walked in the winning run in the bottom of the 9th with the bases loaded.
Veteran Francisco Liriano (4-4, 5.66 ERA) has not faced the Astros this season. His ERA is one of the highest in the league among starting pitchers.
In his last start on July 1st, Liriano looked like he should be headed to the bullpen, instead of in the starting rotation.
He pitched seven innings, allowing five runs (all earned), three walks and four strikeouts in a 7-1 loss to the Red Sox.

Free Houston Astros vs. Toronto Blue Jays MLB Prediction:
Lance McCullers Jr. is one of the best young arms in the game.
Coming off a tough last outing, I don’t see him repeating those same mistakes. Liriano is in for a short night as he should get relived in the fifth inning in this game. Take the Astros.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER the Number
With as hot as the Astros bats can get, I like them to generate runs by the bunches. The Blue Jays will struggle to get hits off McCullers, but the Astros by themselves will tie the over. The over is what I would take in this one.
