We came through with an easy winner on Monday night as the Houston Astros and San Diego Padres played under the total. As we said J.A. Happ was an upgrade pitching against the anemic hitters from the Padres lineup and we liked the fact the game was being played at Petco Park where the ball doesn’t carry and aids pitching. Houston’s offense once again allows no margin for error as the club produces just two runs all game long. With our top play from Tuesday we stick with this National League contest as the Houston Astros and San Diego Padres play game two of this series. This Major League Baseball game will begin from San Diego at 10PM Eastern Time and the MLB Package will deliver the live national television broadcast.

Money early has shown on the Astros as San Diego is now favored by -125 odds with the return on the Houston Astros now at +115 odds. The run over under has not moved off the opening line of 7 runs.

The pitching matchups for game two of this series will feature Jordan Lyles on the hill for the Astros as he will oppose Ross Ohlendorf for the Padres. Ohlendorf gets his first start this season at home. Lyles faced San Diego at home on June 26th and allowed just one earned run and six hits in 6 1/3rd innings. The Houston Astros offense has been pathetic as the club has pushed across two runs or less in six of their past eight games and in four straight games. San Diego has averaged two runs per game in their past four home games and gets shut out last night. Two bad offenses in a good pitchers ballpark lands us on the under once again with our sportsbook betting.
