BETTING STRATEGIES

These two opened their series on Monday with Houston earning a 2-0 win over the Twins. Justin Verlander had a dominant start, pitching seven scoreless innings for the Astros to earn his second win. He allowed just four hits with one walk and nine strikeouts. Marwin Gonzalez and J.D. Davis drove in the lone runs in the game while Carlos Correa had two hits and scored both runs.

Lance Lynn pitched five scoreless innings in a start for the Twins. He allowed three hits with four walks and nine strikeouts. The Minnesota bullpen allowed two runs over four innings. Jason Castro led the Twins at the plate with a pair of hits.

Houston is returning where it left off last season behind its stellar pitching. The Astros are giving up just 2.27 runs per game thus far and that should continue tonight against a Minnesota lineup that isn’t too impressive. The Twins’ pitching isn’t bad but Houston has the capability to manufacture runs a lot more efficiently that Minnesota.
