The Astros need to keep winning to give themselves the best positioning in the postseason, but while Zack Greinke’s turned into the staff ace with Justin Verlander needing Tommy John, Greinke’s still yet to win on the road this season, going 0-2 with a 4.40 ERA across five starts. Nick Margevicius is by no means a world-beater, but he pitched well against the Astros earlier this season, allowing two runs in six innings in a 2-1 loss, but Greinke’s allowed three runs in 3.1 innings against Seattle earlier this season and if Seattle’s offense wakes up a bit here, they could steal this one from under Houston’s nose. I’ll take Seattle and the huge plus money as my premium pick for this game.
