The Houston Astros have been a losing team for about a month running now, and currently they are struggling. Houston has claimed but a single win in their last six games, and wasted a strong effort by Colin McHugh yesterday in a 2-1 loss to the A's. they definately need to win the games that McHugh and Keuchel start, especilly against losing teams, but they started both of them to open this series, and came away empty in both games. Houston has scored just 2 runs in this series. Oakland may be 50-62 on the season, but that is where the value is coming from as the A's opened the season a woeful 25-39, but have been 25-23 since. Houston can't seem to win on the road where they are 6-20 in their last 26 as a road favorite, and 113-223 in their last 336 road games. Houston is also 11-2 to the UNDER in their last 13 on the road vs. a right hander, and 8-1-1 to the UNDER in their last 10 to a total of 7-8.5. The A's come in at 18-6-2 to the UNDER in their last 26 at home vs. a right hander. Houston scores 0.8 runs less vs. right handed pitching, and a long term total situation, pointing to the UNDER has been 551-409 over the last 12 years. Make the play on Oakland and the UNDER in this one.
