3 units on Pittsburgh +161 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
Roy Oswalt is coming off a concerning performance last game. Versus Florida, he gamve up five runs in just six innings. In addition, as good has he has been, he's just 6-7 on the road this season. The fact is, Houston really struggles to score on the road, putting up just 4.1 runs per game. Over the last seven games, this Astros offense has managed just 2.0 runs per game! So here we have a pitcher with a losing record on the road, coming off a very bad game, and backed by a horrible offense - and they are laying heavy wood. I see value on the other side.
