Texas is 7-3 in their last 10 Monday games and 0-8 in their last 8 games. The over is 4-1 in Texas’ last 5 road games. Houston is 5-1 in their last six games and 1-5 in their last 6 Monday games. The under is 5-0-1 in Houston’s last 6 game one’s of a series. The over is 5-1 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.

Houston has one of the best records in baseball this season, but will be starting a pitcher who hasn’t played in the majors yet. Texas is starting Martin Perez, who has been good this season, but a little bit inconsistent. The over has been hitting at a nice clip between these two teams and I think we have another over here.
