Oakland Athletics vs Houston Astros. The MLB pick for this game is the Houston Astros. Although either position may be justified in this instance, I’m going to go with the Houston Astros on the run line.


Even if the Astros are not sweeping opponents in recent games, they are still by much the superior club in this one. One has to wonder how much longer it will be until the A’s make their first move and completely dismantle everything this season.


To gain any value out of the wager, you might need to increase the bet to -2.5, but I’ve been betting on Houston all day. The Houston Astros will win to a predicted score of 5-2.
