Houston is 4-1 in their last 5 road games and 15-6 in their last 21 Tuesday games. The under is 8-2-1 in Houston’s last 11 games. Arizona is 5-14 in their last 19 home games and 0-6 in their last 6 Tuesday games. The under is 3-1-1 in Arizona’s last 5 games. The Astros are 4-1 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.

Arizona has not looked good on offense and will face a good Houston team here. I do think there is a little bit of value here on the Diamondbacks given the day off and benefit of not traveling yet this season. With that in mind, I am taking Arizona at home.
