Travis Wood squares off against Brett Myers in this one. Wood has posted a 3.34 ERA on the road this season while Myers has posted a 2.16 ERA at home. The Astros are averaging just 3.8 runs per game this season. Surprisingly, they've actually been worse on offense at home. The Astros have gone 42-31 to the UNDER at home and deliver especially low-scoring games versus left-handed pitchers where they have gone 27-11 to the UNDER this season. When facing solid defense teams they play to the UNDER going 28-16 UNDER versus teams averaging under 0.7 errors per game. When facing NL teams that allow under 4.4 runs per game since the All-Star break, they are 22-10 to the UNDER. Cincinnati is 28-16 to the UNDER in day games this year and with Myers on the mound, they are 19-9 to the UNDER this season. That includes 12-1 to UNDER since the All-Star break. I'm behind the UNDER in this one.
