Texas Rangers vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction:
Kyle Gibson has done a good job of keeping runs off of the board. He will be in for a tough test on Tuesday against this potent offense. I think the Astros will be able to produce some runs against him.
Like Gibson, Lance McCullers JR. has been a good pitcher this year. He got hit around when they met on May 22. I expect to see him pitch better this time around.
The Astros have been playing well at home this year and I see that continuing in this game.
I will take the Astros on the runline.
