Zac Gallen and plus money is tough to turn down, but as good as he's been, it's hard to trust the Arizona Diamondbacks given they find ways to lose more times than not. Also, as good as Gallen has been, it's Justin Verlander who is going to win the CY Young, and he has a 1.78 ERA and .208 allowed batting average at home. The Houston Astros offense is also on fire right now. Hard to step in front of the home team here. Give me the Astros and the RL for max betting value.
