Oakland Athletics – Houston Astros Match Prediction | 10-09-2019 20:10

Theres also former Astros farmhand turned rookie sensation Ramon Laureano, who just recently made his return from the IL. Hes had a couple of knocks in as many games since coming back. The rest of the offense for the As can certainly bring the pain though, with Mark Canha, Matt Olson and Marcus Smeian all being names to circle in the lineup.

Houston Astros at Oakland Athletics: Picks and Betting Tips

The southpaw is holding an ERA of 3.25 and is 8-4 on the season with 36 BBs and 94 Ks. The leading batsman with hits and an average of .332 is Michael Brantley. When it comes to home runs and RBIs, the Astros is looking towards Alex Bregman as their leader. Houston is all set to start with Wade Miley as their pitcher against Oakland. Houstons batting squad in averaging .270 and opponents are hitting .223.

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.

Justin Verlander is on a Cy Young and Hall of Fame trajectory this season. Utter dominance. JV entered another gear in mid-August and has been absolutely ridiculous in his last five starts. He is 30 strikeouts away from 3,000 for his career with four more cracks at it before the regular season ends. All of that even with getting run early from a game by the home plate ump. During that time hes tossed a no-hitter, had three double-digit strikeout games, struck out 47 batters while only walking 2, and sports a 1.21 ERA and 0.43 WHIP in 37.1 innings.

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.

From The Web

Oakland Athletics and Houston Astros will continue their series fromMinute Maid Park in Houston, Texas on Tuesday. The Twins were stronger at the plate as they smashed seven runs and restricted Oakland to six. The Athletics were unable to get past Minnesota Twins on Sunday, but the managed to put up a decent number on the scoreboard. The Athletics will need to make up for their loss and they are looking forward to win this match against Houston.

But he did have to grind in his last start against the Angels, giving up 4 runs across 5 innings. Fiers makes the start as the winner of his last 12 consecutive decisions and hasnt been handed an L since May 1st. He was roughed up the last time he faced the Astros, surrendering 5 runs across 6 innings of work in that one, including 4 home runs. While he will have starts where his command is elusive and he walks a bit of a tight rope, you cant argue that Fiers is the ace of this staff and has turned his career around in Oakland.

Tanner Roark has turned into a solid pickup for the As and has helped to steady out the rotation behind Fiers. He had perhaps his best start as an Athletic in his last game, having tossed 6.2 innings of scoreless ball. The Astros did have their chances in that one though, as they were able to get 9 men on base against Roark. He also looked good in his lone start against the Astros this year where he went 6 innings, holding Houston to just 2 runs.

The Rangers were restricted to three runs from Houstons pitching squad and they smashed five from the plate. Houston won five games in a row and they look all set to extend their victory. Overall. The Astros were able to defeat Texas Rangers with easy in their last game. Houston Astros are doing a good job from the plate with their talented batting squad.

Astros

Since coming over from the Royals, Bailey has a 4.98 ERA in 10 starts with a big chunk of that coming from his appearance against the Astros. He only tossed 2 innings in the one while getting shelled for 9 runs. Homer Bailey will take the ball after a string of good starts for the As, who Im sure are happy to see that after his disastrous debut with the team. There was one other start like that against the Cubs for him, but Bailey has been mostly solid otherwise.

Last outing: Tossed three-hit ball over seven scoreless innings with no walks and eight strikeouts in a 7-0 victory at the Chicago White Sox Friday. Career vs. Astros: 1-2 with a 5.29 ERA in six starts, including three no-decisions with a 5.63 ERA (10 ER, 16 IP) in three starts this season. Misc.: 9-0 with a 2.12 ERA in last 17 starts. Fiers, who no-hit the Cincinnati Reds May 7, is 11-3 with a 3.30 ERA and a 99/42 K-BB ratio in 25 starts.
