Afternoon Annihilation - Rickenbach MLB Rotation #926 Friday 10* Top Play Houston Astros -1.5 runs -100 vs Tampa Bay Rays @ 2:05 ET - The opportunity to have arguably the best home team in baseball with the best pitcher in baseball at even money is something I won't pass up on. Yes we have to lay 1.5 runs to get it but Houston, with Justin Verlander on the mound, should win this one in a rout. Keep in mind, the Rays Tyler Glasnow missed a lot of this season. While it is true that he has performed well since coming back, the fact is that Glasnow did not see a lot of action and particularly not against a very tough lineup like he will face here. Adding value for the Astros here is they did face him very early this season and they hit .316 against him in that 5-inning start. Note as well that Glasnow did have a strong season on the road this year but that was in limited appearances. That is noteworthy because Glasnow entered this season having gone 3-10 with a 5.85 ERA in road games in his career. Verlander went 2-0 against the Rays this season and he dominated them as Tampa Bay hit just .159 against him in those two outings. Verlander went 8-1 in his 11 day game starts this season. More domination here and, of course, I am not laying a -220 price on the money line but I'll gladly grab the even money price on the Astros run line for this one! 10* HOUSTON -1.5 runs
