1 unit on Seattle +122 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 2.22) RESULT: win
1 unit on Game Total UNDER 7 -120 (risk 1 to return 1.83) RESULT: push
Houston is a long way from home and playing the third road game of an eight-game trip. Houston's offense is not good against southpaws, as the Astros are 28-62 on the road against a left-handed starter, as well as 13-5 UNDER the total vs. a lefty starter. It's tough to back the erratic Astros in the role of favorite at 3-9 as a road favorite. They have a good starter going in young Lance McCullers (2.00 ERA) and he should keep this low scoring in Seattle's Safeco Field, a big park. But Seattle has a fine arm going of its own in lefty Roenis Elias (3-4, 3.67), with a 3.20 ERA at home. Seattle is 4-1 as an underdog and 5-1 following a loss. Seattle is also 18-7-1 UNDER the total when Elias starts, plus 18-7-1 UNDER as a home underdog. Take Seattle and play the game total UNDER.
