There is still an imbalance between these two teams that makes Houston significant favourites. The mound matchup is not nearly as imbalanced as the opener though.
This is being written before we have results from the opener but I doubt much is going to change from that one game.
This is only game number two so we might not have full confirmation of how lame this Seattle offense is going to be this season.
I am assuming that Justin Verlander is going to make them look pretty meek in the opener but they might be able to wait out McCullers who is coming off an injury and might be a little unsteady with his trademark curveball.
The key is going to be getting some runs early. Though this team is not exactly deep playing with a lead will help mentally.
Taijuan Walker has not pitched much since 2018. Even then he was more of an underperformed to expectations. I am not confident in him.
The heat may be on the Astros but they are so good they should be able to handle it easily. They still have a bunch of players in their prime, they are not fading.
Lance McCullers Jr. will be making his first start in more than a season due to injury. The jury is out on what he can be in his reincarnation but I am trusting the Astros that he will be ready.
One thing that helps is that with expanded rosters the Astros can keep McCullers on a pitch limit without worrying about it too much. They have lost of arms at the ready.
Houston is the far superior team and I expect that to be evident in every game this season. This one is not as much of a mismatch but they will still be the heavy side.

This pitching matchup is nowhere near as lopsided as the opener. Still I am making the same play with Houston getting a pretty easy win.

I know home run lines are sometimes not great value because you lose that final at bat but I don’t see this one going any other way.
