Houston at Oakland

1 unit on Oakland +108 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 2.08) RESULT: LOSS
The Houston Astros are a very young and talented team. They paid their dues with some really awful seasons, but the young players are coming of age, and they have some quality pitching at the top of the rotation. The issue of a young team is learning to win on the road, and not to panic when things are going badly. Houston is facing all of those issues, as they are 38-18 at home, but a very poor 22-31 on the road. Houston has started their road trip by getting swept vs. Texas, and it has extended their road losing streak to five games. Half of the Astros' road wins have been behind Kuechel, and McHugh. Feldman has not been the answer as the Astros are 3-13 in his last 16 starts after a team loss, and he is just 1-5 in his last six vs. the A's. Back the home team.
