If you are looking tons of runs then you should not be watching the Houston Astros, but UNDER bettors have fallen in love with the club. The ‘Stros have gone UNDER in 17 of their past 23 games thanks to a middling offense and an above average rotation. The Astros will kick off a three-game set at Minute Maid Park with the Seattle Mariners Monday.
- The Astros have won their past six games against the AL West – though all against the LA Angels.
- The Mariners are 8-3 in their past 11 games when Wade Miley starts.
- The UNDER is 7-0 in the Mariners’ past seven games as underdogs.
Maybe Wade Miley should have stayed on the DL, as the lefty allowed seven hits and five runs across just four innings in his first trip to the bump since dealing with a sore shoulder. Miley has now posted a 7.63 ERA in his past six starts while allowing 41 hits in just 30.2 innings.
Lance McCullers should be well rested for his starts Monday, as he missed his last start with a blister on his throwing hand. The right-hander also has the luxury of pitching at Minute Maid Park where he has a 2.37 ERA in five starts this season.
