3 units on Houston +130 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
The San Francisco Giants were a tremendous home team a year ago, but did not fare well on the road. The Giants led the National League a year ago with 52 home wins, but were nine games under on the road. Matt Cain is a rising star on the mound, but the Giants could do no better than break even in his 16 road starts. They are an even worse road team with Cain on the hill playing on the road with a total set at 7-8.5. The Giants have managed just an 11-25 mark in their last 36 in this situation. The Astros have taken the money in 11 of their last 15 as a home dog and they have some bark. I'll go with Houston in this one.
