Tuesday night’s line of the Astros -385 was an insane price but it’s what you’d expect with Cy Young candidate Justin Verlander on the mound vs. Texas. Houston came through in the series opener winning 4-1.
The line is even higher for Wednesday’s tilt with the Rangers a +375 underdog and bettors having to lay -450 on the Houston ML. The Rangers are up against Gerritt Cole in this one and have a .235 team average vs. the Astros starter.
The Rangers had been playing good ball. They put together a 4-game sweep at Baltimore and and actually took 2 of 3 at home to Tampa Bay. Since then though, it’s been four straight losses for Texas with their offense scoring just 2 runs total in the last two.
It will be Kolby Allard making his first appearance against any Houston batter on Wednesday.
The left-hander served up 4 ER to the Rays in his last start but has largely buckled down since becoming a member of the Rangers, holding 4 of 7 opponents to 2 runs or less.
The Astros inch closer to clinching a division title with their 4-1 win on Tuesday. It wasn’t the most convincing as Houston managed just 4 runs after plating 12 on Sunday.
The Astros have now won 4 in a row but that followed a 3-game losing streak at home to the A’s to prove that Houston is mortal. The Astros have scored at least 4 runs in 7 of the last 10 and have outputs of 21,15, and 12 over that span.
Houston likely won’t need a ton of runs on Wednesday with Gerritt Cole getting the start.
The right-hander has allowed 2 runs total in his last 3 starts and has allowed a run or less in 6 of his last 7 outings.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Rangers are 4-0 last 4 road games
