The Houston Astros are 18-11 this season and have won seven games in a row. Houston is coming off of a series win against the Tigers, where they won all four games in the series. The Houston pitching staff has a 2.95 ERA, a 1.10 WHIP, and a .216 opponent batting average this season. The Astros offense has scored 110 runs with a .217 batting average and a .297 on base percentage. Alex Bregman is batting .235 with five home runs and 17 RBI’s for the Astros this season. The projected starter for Houston is Justin Verlander, who is 3-1 with a 1.93 ERA and a 0.70 WHIP over 32.2 innings pitched this season.
The Minnesota Twins are 18-11 this season and have won seven of their last nine games. Minnesota is coming off of a series win against Oakland, where they won all three games in the series. The Minnesota pitching staff has a 3.11 ERA, a 1.12 WHIP, and a .220 opponent batting average.

Houston is 7-0 in their last 7 games and 18-7 in their last 25 Tuesday games. The under is 6-1 in Houston’s last 7 road games. Minnesota is 9-0 in their last 9 home games and 14-3 in their last 17 games. The under is 3-0-1 in Minnesota’s last 4 games. The under is 6-2-1 in these two teams last 9 head to head meetings.
This is going to be a very good pitching matchup and runs should be at a premium in this game. Both teams have been playing very good baseball in recent games and we should be in for a very competitive series. This game is a toss up to me, but I really like the under. The total is low, but these are two very good pitchers and could easily see a 2-1 or 3-2 final score.
