It does help that the bullpen has been filled out a little with September call ups and that a couple of those arms can go extra innings if needed. With the dominance of Verlander and Cole this week they havent had to do much duty recently, but have been effective when deployed. The Astros bullpen has had a decent week, especially in light of having to cover for an ineffective Wade Miley in game 1 against the Mariners.

Void bets occur when the bet is not decided as a win or loss and the stake is returned to the player. This happens when a match is suspended, posponed, or cancelled e.g. Note: bookmakers' policies on voided matches changes so we always recommend players to check the specific terms of bookmakers they bet with to ensure they understand under what circumstances they void bets. a common void bet occurs in tennis when a player retires through injury.

When it comes to home runs and RBIs, Matt Chapman has taken the lead for his team. Oakland is looking towards Mike Fiers as their starter against Houston on Tuesday. The leading batsman is Ramon Laureano with an average of .284. Oakland is holding a batting average of .250 and opponents are hitting .241. The righty is holding an ERA of 3.64 and is 9-3 on the season with 35 BBs and 78 Ks.

I'll take the Astos and the RL for a better price. Verlander has allowed 35 hits and 13 earned runs in his last 43 innings, and he has a 3.01 ERA and .177 allowed batting average on the road. In 142 at bats against current A's hitters,Verlander is allowing a .225 batting average with 44 strikeouts. Roark has allowed 10 hits and three earned runs in the 11.2 innings since coming over from Cincinnati, and he's allowing a .268 batting average on the season. I love backing theOakland Athletics at home, especially when getting a favorable line, but it's so tough to bet against Verlander.

The As have kept up easily though, employing one of their characteristic second-half pushes to stay firmly in control of their playoff destinies. They also still have an outside chance at the division but time is growing short and Oakland will probably need to sweep the Astros in their own stadium, something that no team has done this year. The As arrive in the Houston in the midst of three-way fight for two wild card spots along with the Indians and Rays. Theyre currently in control of the second spot and just a game behind Tampa Bay for the first, but the Indians and Rays have been playing good baseball lately and keeping the pressure on Oakland.


The Astros have absolutely pummeled the AL West in Houston this year, and Im not just talking about yesterdays 21-1 drubbing of the Mariners. The Astros are deep in the hunt for home field advantage, running neck and neck with the Yankees as they come into this series. They are 27-2 against their division in Minute Maid Park this year, including a 5-1 record at home against the As. To add to that, their magic number for the AL West currently sits at 10 and they have a chance to break the club record for wins in a season. All of those are reason enough for the team to keep their foot on the gas.

The Athletics scored five and restricted the Twins to four. Houston Astros will remain at home to face-off against Oakland Athletics on Monday in the first game of a three-game series. Oakland done an amazing job by defeating Minnesota Twins on Saturday. The Athletics enter into this match with a two-game winning streak and are expecting to extend their victory.
