Baltimore Orioles vs Houston Astros Prediction

This game is going to be a pitchers duel. Brunes sits with an ERA of 2.14 and in his last start he gave up only two runs. Blanco sits with an ERA of 2.42 and in his last start he was dominant. Both pitchers are going to lockdown here and that is going to be the difference here. Both teams are going to really struggle to get the offense going here, and this game is going to stay under the total.
