Point Spread: -1½/+113 Houston

Result: Loss

*3 Star MLB Bookie CRUSHER* The Houston Astros send Scott Kazmir to the mound, and short of Clayton Kershaw there hasn't been anyone in baseball throwing the ball better than him of late. He's a really streaky pitcher, and he can go on prolonged stretches like this. Since Kazmir is capable of getting lit up from time to time, I'm taking the plus money on the run line instead of laying nearly -150 on the moneyline (though it was a tough call). Houston's bullpen is one of the best in baseball. Texas has the worst bullpen in baseball. Nick Martinez has been really bad in the last month, and Houston's offense is much improved. Take Houston -1.5.
