Houston Astros vs New York Mets Prediction

Runs are going to be hard to come by in this game. Blanco has been strong this season, and in his last start he gave up only one run. Quintana gave up only run in his last start, and he’s also going to have a strong start against the Mets. The Mets and Astros are both going to have some major issue getting the offense going here, and this game is going to end up lower scoring. Back the under to cash.
