The Astros did not have a lot to cheer about this whole season, but they gave their fans a little bit of something on Friday night to be proud of. They won with some late inning heroics and were led by Bud Norris on the mound who had a strong start. Tonight they will start Dallas Keuchel who has lost his last four decisions. He has allowed 52 hits in just 45 innings of work.
The Brewers bullpen has struggled all year on Friday and they did once again on Friday as well. They received a good strong starting pitching outing from Mark Rogers, but the bullpen could not hold on in the end. Tonight the Brewers will start Marco Estrada was looking for is first win of the season. Estrada is pitching to a 4.13 ERA 80 innings of work.
Houston is 8-19 in their last 27 home games, 11-43 in their last 54 games overall, and 0-6 in Keuchel’s last six starts. Milwaukee is 5-1 in their last six games as a favorite, 6-19 in their last 25 road games, and 0-5 in Estrada’s last five road starts. Milwaukee is 20-8 in the last 28 meetings of these two.
These are big odds on the road for the Astros considering they are not playing that well to begin with. We’ll take a chance with the Astros as a moneyline underdogs at home in this game at the sportsbooks.
