Toronto’s 4-2 win over Houston on Tuesday made it three wins for the Blue Jays in the last four meetings between these two teams.
Toronto is 6-2 in their last 8 road games and 10-4 in their last 14 games overall while the under is 9-4 in their last 13 road games against a team with a losing record. Houston is 56-22 in their last 78 games against a team with a winning record and 42-15 in their last 57 games following a loss while the over is 9-2 in their last 11 home games.
I’m backing the Astros here. Toronto got the better of the Astros on Tuesday, but I’m not trusting Jose Berrios on the road as he has really struggled away from Toronto going back to last season. Houston has been inconsistent to put it nicely, but I think the ‘Stros tee off on Berrios here and get some revenge on Wednesday. Give me Houston.
