The Houston Astros and the Cincinnati Reds will meet in a divisional series from Houston. All odds and trends for this game can be found at Top Bet sportsbook.
It’s been a tough year for the Astros to say the least as they now have the worst record in baseball. It has been a combination of bad hitting and bad pitching that has led to their demise. They will send Wandy Rodriguez to the mound who has lost for his last five decisions. Rodriguez is pitching to a 3.75 ERA in 124 innings of work so far this season.
The Reds on the other hand come into this series as one of the top teams in baseball and maybe one of the dark horse to make the World Series. Today they will pitch Mat Latos who has a no decision and two losses in his last three starts. Latos has allowed just 106 hits in 114 innings of work but still sees his ERA at just 4.33.
Houston is 13-39 in their last 52 games overall, 1-7 in their last eight game one of a series, and 1-5 in Rodriguez’s last six starts. Cincinnati is 11-2 in their lst 13 games as a favorite, 6-2 in their last eight road games against a left handed starter, and 8-3 in Latos’s last 11 starts.
With Latos and Wandy Rodriguez we think is a sound pitching matchup, but the line maybe a little bit too low for runs scored. We’ll take the over for total runs scored at best online sportsbooks.
