Houston at Arizona
Sunday 10/04 03:10 PM Eastern
1 unit on Arizona +150 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 2.5) RESULT: WIN
Houston has plenty to play for, but they've been a bad road team all year. The Astros are 18-40 in their last 58 road games, including 2-6 in interleague road games against a left-handed starter. Houston trots out righty Lance McCullers (6-7), but he's no stopper at 2-6 with a 4.68 ERA in 11 road starts this season. The Astros are 1-9 in McCullers' last 10 road starts. He faces a terrific Arizona offense, one ranked eighth in baseball in runs scored, on-base percentage, and slugging. The Diamondbacks are 5-1 against a righty starter and a good bounce back team, 5-2 after a defeat. Lefty Robbie Ray (3.50 ERA) has very good stuff with the team 3-1 his last four starts. He's allowed two total earned runs his last two starts (12 innings), and the Astros are 3-7 in the last 10 meetings in Arizona. Play Arizona.
