Houston -1.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: Houston’s Cy Young candidate Justin Verlander has been remarkable this season (7-1 at home with a 1.93 ERA) and hasn’t given up more than one run in each of his last seven starts anywhere. He is also backed up by the majors' No. 1 bullpen (2.64 ERA). Yesterday the Astros were able to get seven runs off the Rangers' All-Star ace Martin Perez. Texas' starter on Wednesday, Glenn Otto, holds a road record of 2-4 with a 4.02 ERA and opponents hitting .248. The Rangers are also 16-35 in their last 51 games in Houston. Play the Astros on the run line (-140).
