Score: 7 - 1
Total: +102/+8 Under
This is a 10* TOTAL OF THE MONTH on the UNDER between the Houston Astros and the Texas Rangers.
The Astros are the hottest team in baseball and they enter this series off seven straight victories, most recently blasting the Twins 17-6. Houston has now seen the total go OVER the number in four straight. Texas is just 3-7 in its last ten, but it’s 16-11 at home overall this year. The Rangers have also been playing to some higher-scoring affairs of late, with all three of their contests against the Rays flying OVER the number in their latest series. However, with each team’s ace on the mound tonight, we’re finally expecting a lower-scoring pitchers duel.
Dallas Keuchel: He’s 8-0 with a 1.81 ERA. Keuchel most recently allowed one run off four hits and two walks while striking out eight over six innings in a 5-2 win over Baltimore on Saturday. Keuchel is throwing on an extra days rest tonight and note that he’s been particularly sharp on the road this year by going 4-0 with a 2.57 ERA.
Yu Darvish: He’s 5-3 with a 2.97 ERA. Darvish will be eager to get back on the winning track after allowing three runs off five hits and three walks while striking out four over six innings in a setback to red hot Toronto on Saturday. Darvish would make only one mistake, serving up a three-run home run to Jose Bautista. Note that Darvish has been excellent at home this season, so far 3-1 with a 2.97 ERA.
The bottom line: Note that Houston has seen the total go UNDER the number in 30 of its last 53 games played in the month of June, while Texas has seen the total go UNDER the number in 27 of 50 in the same position and in eight of 11 against southpaws. Play the UNDER.
