Astros score go-ahead run in 7th 

A George Springer RBI single scored Max Stassi in the top of the seventh inning Saturday night, breaking a 3-3 tie and sending the Astros to a 4-3 win at Texas. Springer finished 2-for-3 with a walk, a run and the RBI. Yuli Gurriel was 2-for-4 with an RBI. Stassi went 1-for-3 with a home run, a walk and two runs. Tony Kemp was 2-for-4 with a double. Charlie Morton started for Houston, but was ineffective as he gave up two runs (one earned) with four strikeouts and six walks over 3 2/3 innings. Chris Devenski earned the win in relief, while Hector Rondon picked up his second save.

Odor scores pair of runs

Two of the three runs scored by Texas on Saturday came via second baseman Rougned Odor, who had a double in four at-bats. Shin-Soo Choo drew three walks at the top of the order, while Delino DeShields Jr. walked twice and had an RBI. Joey Gallo also walked twice. Ronald Guzman was 2-for-4 with a double, a walk and an RBI. As a team, the Rangers drew 10 walks. Jose Leclerc allowed one earned run on two hits plus a walk in an inning of work to take the loss.

Dallas Keuchel (3-8, 4.13 ERA) will start today for the Astros, while the Rangers turn to Matt Moore (1-5, 7.47). 

MLB Betting Trends

Houston

The over is 7-2 in the last nine Astros games following a win. The under is 5-1-2 in Keuchel's last eight starts versus Texas.

Texas

The Rangers are 3-14 in their last 17 home meetings versus Houston. The under is 6-2-1 in the last nine Texas games overall.

Prediction:

Even with shortstop Carlos Correa out of the lineup with an injury, it's really difficult to see Moore slowing down this Astros offense. It fares well against lefties and Moore has been brutal this season Keuchel has been inconsistent, but this isn't the best offense he's faced lately. I think he'll provide at least an adequate if not a strong start today. While the moneyline has a lot of juice, consider the runline bet which is where my money is going.
