2 units on Texas -170 (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: WIN
These teams are nearly mirror images as Houston comes in at 29-45 while Texas is 44-29. The Rangers have done it with a potent lineup that has pounded in 6.1 runs per game at home this season. That's nearly double what Houston manages on the road. How will this lineup fare against Roy Oswalt? Consider that Texas has taken care of business vs. Oswalt the last five times these teams have met. He's allowed the Rangers .331 batting and hasn't notched a win. Tommy Hunter has numbers that rival Oswalt's as he has put up a 2.31 ERA and hasn't yet lost a game. As a road dog of +100 to +150, the Astros are just 14-33 since last season. Too much offense for Houston to handle here.
