Betting Analysis

The Red Sox are reeling losers of 7 straight games and they are in the basement of the AL East 11 games back of the New York Yankees. In losing 6 straight games on the road they are batting under .500 as a team and in their 7-game losing streak they only have 1 HR.

The Astros rank 3rd in the Majors in runs scored and they have hit the most HR in baseball. In the first 2 games of this series the Astros have goon deep 4 times.

Lance McCullers is 3-0 with a 1.20 ERA in five home starts.

Wade Miley was stellar in his last start, but the bullpen lost the game for him after he left in the 7th after giving up no earned runs. In his previous 3 starts he had an ERA of 6.88, but 3 career starts against Houston he is 2-0 with a ERA of 3.00.

Pitching has been the main weakness of the Red Sox this season, as they only rank 28th in the Majors in team ERA.

I think Miley will have a good outing tonight and the Red Sox will snap their winning streak in Houston avoiding the sweep.
