1 unit on Houston +130 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 1) RESULT: loss
2 units on Game Total UNDER 6 +100 (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: win
3 units on Houston +1.5 runs -140 (runline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: loss
This looks like a perfect setup for one of those 2-1, 3-2 type games with Ubaldo Jimenez, squaring off vs. Roy Oswalt. Houston’s offense has been lacking punch all season, and the Rockies suddenly run-deprived offense has plated just 13 in their last five games, suggesting a good day for both aces to do their thing. The Rockies stand at just 6-13 on the road behind Jimenez facing a losing team, while the Stros coming up big long-term behind Oswalt with a 64-28 mark in his last 92 starts at home. This looks like a live dog here, so I'll go with Houston as well as the UNDER which is now 20-4-2 in a Houston game when facing a pitcher with a WHIP of under 1.15.
