Houston is 15-2 in their last 17 games and 8-2 in their last 10 road games. The under is 9-2 in Houston’s last 11 road games. Washington is 9-4 in their last 13 interleague games and 17-35 in their last 52 Saturday games. The under is 18-5 in Washington’s last 23 home games. Houston is 9-23 in these two teams last 32 head to head meetings.

These two teams are headed in different directions this season, with the Astros being the team going in the right direction. Houston has been very good in their last 11 games and has not lost. Washington is starting Fedde for this game, who has only allowed three runs in his last three starts. I think this game could go either way and also like the value that the Nationals have, but I am taking the under here.
