Houston at Texas

1 unit on Texas +148 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 2.48) RESULT: WIN
The Houston Astros have come a long way in a short time, and the pitching certainly has been outstanding. The Astros have a dynamic duo at the top of the rotation in Dallas Keuchel and Collin McHugh, both already with 13 wins, and now have added another big pitcher in Scott Kazmir, who has a 2.10 ERA on the season. The problem for this young Houston team has been winning on the road. They are a dominating 38-18 at home, but on the road they are 22-30. They have hit left-handers hard at 4.8 runs per game, but just four runs per game vs. right-handers. Houston is in a very bad spot as they are 6-20 in their last 26 as a road favorite, and the struggles vs. right-handed pitching, especially on the road where they are 1-8 in their last nine, spells trouble tonight, especially vs. a Rangers team that is now 6-0 in their last six as a dog from +110 to +150. Take the home dog Texas.
