Best Bets for Miami Marlins vs. Houston Astros

Full-Game Side Bet

Insiders Status:

Rating:

The Astros have won seven of their last eight home games. They are playing very well offensively, scoring at least five runs in six straight home games. Expect them to play well offensively in this game because they have had a lot of success against left-handers and Rogers has struggled on the mound, giving up seven runs in his last three starts. He gave up six runs in his last three road starts and with Miami having one of the worst bullpens in the league, they will have a hard time slowing down the Astros in this game.

The Marlins have lost two of their last three road games. They have struggled offensively and scored only nine runs in their last three road games. Their offensive struggles will continue in this game because they haven’t hit the ball well against right-handers and Blanco has done a great job on the mound, giving up nine runs in his last four starts. He gave up one run in his last two home starts and won’t have trouble keeping Miami’s offense in check. Go with Houston to cover the run line.

Prediction: Houston Astros -1.5

The Marlins are averaging 3.51 runs per game and 2.98 runs per game on the road. They averaged five runs per game in their last three games against the Astros. With Houston giving up 2.44 runs per game in home games started by Blanco, the Marlins will be held under their average in this game. The Astros are averaging 4.77 runs per game and 5.14 runs per game at home. They averaged 6.33 runs per game in their last three games against the Marlins. With Miami giving up 5.42 runs per game in road games started by Rogers, the Astros will score enough runs to push the score over the total. The Astros and Marlins played over the total in three of their last four meetings.
