Game Preview


The Arizona Diamondbacks are starting Zachary Gallen at Minute Maid Park at 8:10pm EDT in Houston against the Astros’ Justin Verlander. To no one’s surprise, the almighty Astros featuring a 17-4, 1.82 ERA pitcher are favorites and as of now the run line sits at -1.5 while the total is 6.5 for the game. Despite some unexpected poor performances from the Astros in the past few weeks, it remains an act of bravery to go against them with a 84-71 record against the spread. Some handicappers have turned to first 5 innings bets lately to avoid bullpen shenanigans and with the Astros having hit the team total over in 28 of their last 50 games, that’s certainly an angle that bettors are looking at. However, if you’re interested in the Diamondbacks instead, they’ve hit the team total under in the first five innings 3 times in their last 5 games which represents a larger ROI.


The Arizona Diamondbacks have claimed victories in 49 of their 117 matches this year and 9 of 35 games when listed as heavy underdogs of at least +160 on the moneyline. Even though this Arizona team has become a solid dog to back, the Astros carry too much firepower for many handicappers to get behind them. The Houston Astros have won 96 of their 137 games in which they’ve entered as favorites which represents 70.1%, a fearful stat for sure. Additionally, the Astros have hit over 58 times out of their 159 games that they’ve played this season.


Generally speaking, it seems the numbers point at an over and a clear Astros win and while some brave handicappers may find value in the Diamondbacks, it certainly looks like a tall task for the Arizona team.
