Colorado Rockies vs Houston Astros Prediction

The Houston Astros should win this game at home as a chance to get back to a .500 record. However, instead of playing with big prices, I'm going with the over. Ryan Feltner has been awful this season with a 6.02 ERA and Spencer Arrighetti is similar and has been a mess at home. The numbers suggest we're going to see some fireworks. I expect a high scoring game between the Rockies and Astros. Give me the over 8.5 runs in game 2.
