MLB Betting Trends
The Astros are 5-0 in their last five interleague games. Houston is 4-1 in the last five Greinke starts.
The Brewers are 5-1 in the last six Lyles starts. Milwaukee is 1-4 in its last five home games.
Greinke has fit in well in the Astros rotation as was expected and it still seems like he has more to offer. While Lyles has been pretty solid for Milwaukee, I like the way the Astros have been carving out victories lately and I think it continues here. Go with the road favorites in this spot.
