PUBLIC BETTING INFORMATION

As of this writing, 70% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks on tonight's game are on the Astros to win on the money line. Meanwhile, 83% of the betting tickets are on the under.

OUR PREDICTION

Keuchel looked like the same pitcher that won the American League Cy Young Award in 2015 last year when he dominated for the 'Stros. He's 40-24 with a 3.29 ERA in 89 career games (82 starts) prior to the All-Star Break and was outstanding against the Rangers last season, posting a 3-1 record with a 2.92 ERA in four starts.

Fister, meanwhile, pitched well for the Red Sox before fading poorly down the stretch. With wind a potential factor tonight in Arlington, I like the under to cash for bettors.
