Betting on the Houston Astros (odds)
Regular Season Record: 45-27
The Astros are coming off a split in a four-game series in the Bronx against the New York Yankees. They have lost just three times in their last 11 games, and that stretch includes their two wins over the New York Mets at home. Houston now gets its turn to be visitors in this matchup, with Luis Garcia, who has a 5-5 record along with a 3.68 ERA and 1.07 WHIP this season. In his last start, Garcia allowed 3 earned runs on 6 hots in a 5-3 win over the Mets on June 22 at home. The Astros are 3-2 in Garcia’s last five starts. Offensively, the Astros are not averaging a bunch of runs per game, but are third in wRC+ (114 ) and fifth in wOBA (.323). The return of rookie shortstop Jeremy Pena from a 10-day stint on the injured list also boosts the potential of Houston’s offense.
Betting on the New York Mets (odds)
Regular Season Record: 47-27
The Mets are coming off a 3-2 road loss to the Miami Marlins on Sunday, but they won that three-game series, 2-1. Carlos Carrasco will be starting for New York this Tuesday. He is currently labeled day-to-day with a back issue, but Mets manager Buck Showalter said that the pitcher is just going to be fine and is expected to make the start Tuesday. Carrasco is 8-3 with a 4.42 ERA and 1.29 WHIP this season. The 35-year-old Venezuelan is 5-0 in seven home starts to date this season, racking up a 3.00 ERA and .244 opponents’ batting average in those contests. That should inspire confidence on Carrasco, especially since he was tagged for 5 earned runs on 4 hits in his last start, which was a 5-3 road loss to the Astros.
The Mets win, 5-3.
