The Houston Astros are starting Lance McCullers Jr. He has a 6-1 record and a 2.97 ERA.

The Pick: Astros ML
The Why: Astros bats stay hot
We have been really good betting on the Astros, so why not go back to it. the come into this game first in runs scored, hitting and OPS. Everyone knows the two big Astros stars Carlos Correa and Jose Altuve. However, they have another slugger in their lineup in Yordan Alvarez. In the game against the Athletics on Tuesday, he went 3-3 and hit two homers.
Frankie Montas started the year out pitching well for the Athletics, but his record has fallen off. In his last six starts, the Athletics have only won two games. This Astros lineup will definitely be the best he has faced in his last six outings. I expect Jose Altuve and company to be able to hit Montas hard and get some runs on him, like they’ve done to every pitcher.
We’re taking the Astros again in this matchup. Lance McCullers has pitched well in his last three starts, earning wins in both. These two teams are going in opposite directions. We’re going to trust Jose Altuve and the Astros lineup to complete the sweep.
