Houston Astros vs Cleveland Guardians 8/6/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Houston Astros will meet with the Cleveland Guardians in MLB action in Progressive Field, OH, on Saturday, August 6, 2022, at 6:10 PM ET.

 

After Friday’s 8-3 victory over Cleveland, the Houston Astros extended their AL West lead to 12 games, with the Mariners’ outcome versus the Angels still undetermined.

 

Houston is currently third in MLB with a +130 run differential overall and has an MLB-best road record of 36-21. Additionally, the Astros claimed their past seven meetings in Cleveland.

 

Even without manager Dusty Baker who tested positive for COVID-19, Houston’s win on Friday was achieved. Trey Mancini, who was obtained from the Baltimore Orioles at the trade deadline, had a significant influence on the game.

 

In the second inning, he blasted a single home run to level the score at 1-1. In the third inning, he crushed a grand slam to make the score 6-1.

 

Luis Garcia (8-7, 3.81 ERA) will start for the Astros on Saturday as they attempt to record their fourth straight victory. Garcia has a 2-4 record this year but a remarkable 2.72 ERA away from home.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 5 of Houston’s last 6 matches. 
  • The Houston Astros are 6-3 SU in their last 9 games. 
  • Houston is 11-2 SU in their last 13 matches against Cleveland.

Houston Astros vs Cleveland Guardians Predictions 8/6/2022

 

Going into Saturday, the Twins and Cleveland Guardians in the AL Central are separated by only two matches.

 

At the deadline, Cleveland did not make any deals to enhance their squad, but it’s difficult to blame them given that they have the MLB’s youngest team and are still missing several key players from being regarded as a serious American League Pennant candidate.

 

In Cleveland’s first two matches against the Astros, it was outscored 15-3. Amed Rosario’s home run in the first inning gave them an early 1-0 lead on Friday.

 

The advantage did not last long, and by the time the Guardians got their last two runs in the seventh inning, they were down 8-1.

 

On Saturday, Cal Quantrill (7-5, 4.08 ERA) will start. He made 11 starts at home this year and is 5-0 with a 3.44 ERA. On May 25, he lost 2-1 against the Astros while pitching on the road.

 

  • The total went OVER in 6 of Cleveland’s last 7 matches. 
  • The total went OVER in 4 of the Guardians’ previous 5 matches at home. 
  • The Cleveland Guardians are 0-7 SU in their last 7 matches at home against Houston.

Houston Astros vs Cleveland Guardians. The MLB pick for this game is the Houston Astros. On Thursday and Friday, my “best bet” was the Astros at -1.5.

 

I still have greater confidence in the Astros, even if the Guardians have a far better opportunity to win on Saturday than they had in the previous two matches.

 

Since the start of last year, Houston won 10 of its previous 12 games versus Cleveland. The Astros are also the fourth-most lucrative road club for sports bettors.

 

Although the competition was not as fierce, Quantrill still conceded four runs or more in three of the Guardians’ previous five victories despite their victories. The Houston Astros will win to a predicted score of 6-3.
