Score: 0 - 15
Money Line: +169 Oakland
Todays starter for the Astros Greinke has surrendered nine earned runs on 14 hits over 11 2/3 innings in his last two starts, with the Astros losing both of those contests. Meanwhile, Athletics starter Fiers is 12-0 with a 2.59 ERA over his last 21 starts, a streak that began with his no-hitter against the Cincinnati Reds on May 7. He has allowed a .639 OPS during his winning streak, with the Athletics going 17-4 in those starts. Oakland has won Fiers' previous two starts against the Astros and gets my support tonight on a value line.
FIERS is 16-2 against the money line vs. poor baserunning teams - averaging 0.5 or less SB's/game in the second half of the season over the last 2 seasons. (Team's Record)
