Pick
HOU (-120) @ Betamerica
Our pick on the Astros yesterday was actually made on the premise that Rich Hill was starting for Tampa. He didn’t, and he gets the start today against an even better Astros pitcher than we had yesterday.
 
-Cristian Javier has a 0.87 ERA this year and has 25 runs in run support in his 4 starts this year. He hasn’t allowed an earned run since his season debut, and he’s been phenomenal with RISP (.125 BA against). 
 
-Astros offense goes against a lefty with a 7.45 ERA who was just scratched from his start and is out of rhythm. I like them even more than I did yesterday, but we’ll keep it to 20u as we continue to climb back.

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
We are constantly evaluating online sportsbooks and line feeds to ensure accuracy with our Expert picks.
