Athletics tips and predictions at Astros


Astros 6, Athletics 3

money line

The Houston bullpen situation kills the value on this side. Oakland being Oakland offers no value in this regard.


Race line / Against the spread


Houston -2.5 may have added value in some pitching scenarios, but not this one. Maybe at a price of +110 or better this game will become viable.


Verlander has seen some cheap pricing on the margins and is backed by a bullpen that has been in fatigue territory with its backend usage lately. Mix Verlander’s free time and Oakland’s questionable pitch.

Now add the fact that athletics scored 25 runs in 3 games before this series.

Over 7.5 was a solid game in Thursday’s opening game, but both sides combined 3-of-15 with runners in goal position and Under prevailed.

BACK ABOVE 7.5 (-102).
