Oakland 2 @ Houston 6 | 04/14 | 11:11 AM UTC

Houston -155

WIN

ANALYSIS: It's the home opener for the Astros -- the only place they won't be booed heartily this season in the wake of that cheating scandal. Houston will get back outfielder Michael Brantley. He hasn't played since Saturday due to a bruised wrist but got off to a great start, going 6-for-9 with four doubles, a homer, five runs scored and two RBIs. The Astros swept four games in Oakland last week, winning by a combined score of 35-9. Houston has homered in all six games so far, one shy of the team record to open a season. The Astros are rested after having Wednesday off, while the A's upset the Dodgers for their first win but had to use most of the bullpen, so some guys may not be available here.
