Cleveland Indians Fantasy Spin
Tyler Naquin went 1-for-3 and drew a walk as the Indians fell to the Astros on Saturday afternoon. Naquin also stole a base and scored a run in the contest. The 28-year-old outfielder is now slashing .246/.278/.348 with one homer, seven RBI and three stolen bases through his first 21 games.
Houston Astros Fantasy Spin
Carlos Correa clubbed a two-run homer on Saturday, helping to lead the Astros to an extra-inning victory over the Indians. Correa belted a go-ahead two-run shot off of Indians' starter Shane Bieber in the sixth inning that gave the Astros a 3-1 advantage. He also singled, finishing the day 2-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts. On the season, he's slashing .277/.340/.553 with six long balls, 15 RBI and one stolen base in his first 24 games
MLB Betting Trends
The Indians are 2-6 in Carlos Carrasco’s last eight road starts.
The Astros are 14-6 in their last 20 games overall.
Carrasco is an excellent pitcher but he was limited to just four innings in his last start against the Marlins due to bruised left leg. Jose Altuve also owns Carrasco to the tune of 10-for-23 with a home run and I like the Astros splitting this series after dropping the first two games of this four-game set.
The Pick: Houston Astros -110
