Schule's MLB *TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE* (+$7,780 MLB Run)
Minnesota vs. Houston,

Score: 6 - 2
Money Line: -179 Houston
This is a 9* play on the Houston Astros.
It's been a brutal start to the 2016 season for the Astros. They sit dead last in the AL West, six games back of Texas. Houston will host the Twins in Game 1 of a new series Monday, and this looks like a perfect spot to break out of a slump.
Dallas Keuchel will toe the slab for Houston, and he's been unbeatable at home. Keuchel (2-3, 4.41 ERA) allowed five runs on six hits over six innings in a loss at Seattle his last time out. He's only had one start at home this season, and he tossed eight scoreless innings in a 1-0 win over Detroit. He was 15-0 with a 1.46 ERA at home last year.
The Twins will hand the ball to Jose Berrios, who made the move from shortstop to starting pitcher just a few years ago. He was rocked for five runs on six hits in four innings in a loss to Cleveland in his major league debut. This figures to be a tough spot for the 21 year old, on the road opposite last year's Cy Young winner.
The Twins have lost 10 of their last 11 road games.
