Lack Of Offense Leading To UNDERS Between HOU, CLE

Runs have been hard to come by when the Houston Astros and Cleveland Indians clash, which has led to the UNDER hitting in 15 of the past 18 meetings. The first game in the series between these two clubs just barely went UNDER when they combined for eight runs with an 8.5 closing total Monday.

  • Corey Kluber has a career 2.73 ERA in six appearances against the Astros.
  • The Astros are 7-17 in their past 24 games against the Indians.
  • The Astros are 7-3 SU and against the runline in their past 10 road games.

Corey Kluber has been lights out recently and has thrust himself into the AL Cy Young conversation. Kluber posted a 2.08 ERA across his past seven starts while lasting at least six full innings in each. However, Kluber has struggled a bit with the long ball, as he has surrendered seven home runs in his past five starts.

Brad Peacock will make his first start of the season for the Astros after being called up from Triple-A to replace Dallas Keuchel, who is dealing with shoulder inflammation. Peacock has made just five appearances with the ‘Stros this season – all in relief – with a 3.86 ERA in 7.0 innings of work.
