Houston at Texas

1 unit on Texas -110 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 1.91) RESULT: LOSS
The Houston Astros' offense was terrible in spring training and has been worse now that the real games have started. They've scored just three runs in three games! Houston failed to record a hit Thursday until there was one out in the ninth. The Astros are 90-200 in their last 290 road games. Texas is home and has a fine arm going in lefty Derek Holland (2014: 2-0, 1.46). Holland's most recent start came against Houston on September 22nd, when he yielded three runs - two earned - in seven innings to improve to 3-1 lifetime against the Astros. Texas is on a 15-5 run going back to last season and 24-8 when Holland faces the AL West. The Astros are also 6-20 in the last 26 meetings in Texas. Take Texas.
