Houston Astros -1.5 +116

The Astros return home to take on the Minnesota Twins and hold a solid edge in this pitching matchup here.

Houston as been the most disappointing team out of the gate, there is no doubt about that. However, this team has plenty of talent and it starts with Monday's starting pitcher, Dallas Keuchel.

The LH has struggled this season on the road, but when he gets the nod in Houston, things are totally different. He shut down the Tigers in a 1-0 victory this season as he allowed just 5 hits in 8.0 innings of work. Keuchel has won 2 of 3 games against the Twins with his most recent outing coming with 12 strikeouts.

The Twins have been horrific on the road, which makes this play even nicer. Minnesota has gone just 1-10 SU away from Target Field. They've struggled to score runs as they sit just at 3.09 runs per game on the road. Combine that with them getting Dallas Keuchel here, things will be tough Monday night,

Some trends to consider. Astros are 6-0 in Keuchels last 6 home starts vs. a team with a losing record. Astros are 4-0 in Keuchels last 4 starts vs. American League Central.

Look for Keuchel to dominate the Twins here on Monday, as the Astros cover the RL.

Back Houston RL.

Good Luck, Razor Ray.
