3 units on Houston PICK runs +120 (runline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
Barry Zito has turned out to be a big contract bust for the Giants. He has dropped all seven decisions this season, pitching to a 6.95 ERA. The Giants have now lost 22 of his last 29 starts - the worst in baseball - over that length of time. To compound things, the Giants have scored just 9 runs in the seven games he has started. Roy Oswalt after a couple bad starts early, has now delivered five startight quality starts, with the Astros winning four of them. This is a guy with a career winning percentage of over 67%, and we will ride him vs a struggling Zito in this one.
