The Philadelphia Phillies have scored 19 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 4 of their last 5 games. The Phillies have won 5 of their last 7 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Alec Bohm leads the Phillies with 163 hits and 72 RBI, while Rhys Hoskins and JT Realmuto have combined for 283 hits and 162 RBI. Ranger Suarez gets the ball, and he is 10-6 with a 3.37 ERA and 127 strikeouts this season. This will be Suarez’s first career game against the Astros.

The Houston Astros have scored 5 runs in their last 3 games and 3 or fewer runs in 5 straight games. The Astros have lost 5 of their last 7 games when scoring 3 or fewer runs. Jose Altuve leads the Astros with 155 hits and 57 RBI, while Alex Bregman and Kyle Tucker have combined for 279 hits and 196 RBI. Justin Verlander gets the ball, and he is 17-4 with a 1.80 ERA and 175 strikeouts this season. Verlander is 2-0 with a 1.93 ERA and 16 strikeouts in his career against the Phillies.

The Phillies are 10-22 in their last 32 Tuesday games and 3-8 in their last 11 road games. The Astros are 38-15 in their last 53 home games and 42-17 in their last 59 Tuesday games. The under is 4-1 in Phillies last 5 interleague road games. The over is 5-2 in Astros last 7 overall. The Phillies are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings in Houston.

The Philadelphia Phillies have had issues all year stringing wins together, so excuse me if I'm not a believer in their recent stretch over the last 5 games or so. Also, Justin Verlander has been probably the best pitcher in baseball this season with his 1.80 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and .190 allowed batting average. The only option here for me is to take the Astros and the RL for max betting value.
