Philadelphia Phillies vs Houston Astros  Predictions 4/30/2023


The Houston Astros will continue a homestand looking to prevent a series sweep when hosting the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday.

The right-handed starter is 1-2 with an ERA of 5.64 while striking out 20 batters in his starts. Urquidy had issues controlling the ball through his last two starts after opening the series with three satisfactory performances after relinquishing a combined 10 earned runs in his past two contests through 7.0 frames.


In his last appearance on the mound facing the Tampa Bay Rays, Urquidy finished just 2.2 innings of work and yielded 6 earned runs.   


The totals went UNDER in 5 of Houston’s last 6 outings while the Astros are 6-3 SU in their last 9 games played.

Though Philadelphia’s Nola took control of Houston’s batters in game 1 allowing them to score just one run on 3 hits, the Astros’ batting unit is too good to beat in three consecutive games at home.


Moreover, Houston is 4-0 in its last 4 inter-league contests against a team with a winning record. The prediction: Houston Astros will win 5-4.
