The Houston Astros simply look like a team possessed right now, with a full-on take no prisoners mentality and they don’t care who’s standing in their way, they’re just mowing them down with a point to prove that they don’t need to cheat to beat anyone. The A’s have their backs up against the wall here and while Oakland’s bullpen is fantastic, I just don’t trust Jesus Luzardo to limit the damage and he’s not necessarily the guy I’d want starting for me in a must-win game. Jose Urquidy isn’t the most reliable arm in the rotation, but he does have a 1.26 career postseason ERA and I think the bats can lift Urquidy if he stumbles. I’ll side with Houston for the win on the money line as my premium pick for this game.
