Houston is 8-1 in their last 9 Sunday games and 5-2 in their last 7 road games. The under is 6-2-2 in Houston’s last 10 Sunday games. Oakland is 3-7 in their last 10 Sunday games and 15-37 in their last 52 home games. The under is 7-1 in Oakland’s last 8 games. Houston is 6-1 in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings.

Oakland has been one of the worst teams in baseball this season and has really struggled to score runs at times. On the flip side, Houston has been one of the best teams this season and leads the AL West by 12.5 games. Houston will turn to Jake Odorizzi in this game, who allowed five runs against Kansas City in his last outing. Oakland will start Cole Irvin, who allowed one run over eight innings against Toronto last time out. I like the under in this game. I also like Oakland because they have the slight edge in pitching, but going against Houston with one of the worst teams in baseball is a tall task.
