Astros Have Been Blasting Through September

Justin Verlander helped the Astros to a sixth straight win in his first ever start for a franchise not named the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday evening and his new team is now on the verge of a sweep over the AL West rival Mariners.

SHARK BITES
  • The Astros are 6-0 on the runline during their winning streak.
  • The Mariners are 0-6 SU and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games against teams with winning records.
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Astros’ last 4 games against the Mariners.

Lance McCullers Jr. (7-3, 3.92 ERA) will be the man tonight as he and the displaced ’Stros try to spoil the Mariners’ bid for a spot in the postseason. The young righty will be making his first start since hitting the DL at the end of July and it’s likely he’ll be on a short leash after struggling mightily before being placed on the shelf.

Seattle will call upon Andrew Moore in the contest and he too will be seeing his first major-league action in quite a while. The orthodox hurler was optioned to Triple-A after a bitter cup of coffee in which Moore posted a 6.34 ERA in seven appearances. The edge on the bump most definitely goes to McCullers in this matchup.

Houston will be a moneyline favorite on the road tonight but at an opening price of -140 you’re probably getting decent value given the Astros’ winning streak.
