The Houston Astros and the St. Louis Cardinals meet for game two of their series tonight in Houston. All MLB odds and trends can be located at Bovada sportsbook.
The Astros are not a top flight team by any means, but they play extremely hard on a night in and night out basis. The Astros offense, defense, and pitching all clicked last night in route to the win. They totaled 9 runs on 13 hits as a team and got a very good pitching performance from Lucas Harrell who notched his 5th win of the season. Today, Bud Norris gets the start. Norris has been struggling as of late and has pitched to a 4.52 ERA overall I n 63 innings of work.
The Cardinals continue to struggle as of late as they had another rally fall short on Tuesday. They lost 9-8 as their bats were up to the ask, but their pitching staff was not. Adam Wainwright will try and right the ship for the champs. Wainwright is still struggling coming off injury and has an ERA near 5 as he tries to round back into form.
Houston is 2-8 in their last 10 games overall, 7-2 in their last nine games against the N.L. Central, and 8-3 in Norris’ last 11 starts. St. Louis is 1-6 in their last seven road games, 0-5 in their last five games as a road favorite, and 1-4 in Wainwright’s last five road starts. St. Louis is 11-1 in Wainwright’s last 12 starts against Houston.

We liked what we saw from the Cardinals bats yesterday. So much so that we think the quality offense will continue tonight and we like them as a solid M/L pick at best sports books.
