Ronel Blanco (8-2 W-L, 2.34 ERA) vs. Jose Quintana (3-5 W-L, 4.58 ERA)


Ronel Blanco enters this game as one of the Astros’ shining lights this season, boasting an outstanding 2.34 ERA and 0.97 WHIP over 84.2 innings pitched – his ability to limit hits and runs has been key in his success on the mound, not to mention an outstanding strikeout-to-walk ratio which highlights his dominance on the mound – essential in recent victories for Houston; yet his road performance, being part of an inconsistent team will determine a key part of its fate on game night!


Jose Quintana faces his own struggles this season with a 4.58 ERA and 1.32 WHIP despite having significant experience. Due to this difference between their performances, however, the Mets may need to rely heavily on both bullpen capabilities as well as offensive capabilities against Blanco’s form in order to counter his dominance of their lineup.


MLB Odds/Point Spread: TBD, Total Odds: TBD


Given recent performances and pitcher match-ups, it would not be unexpected for the Astros to hold an advantage when betting odds become available; this ultimately depends on finalized conditions as well as any unexpected developments at gametime.


Houston Astros Betting Trends


The Astros are on an impressive win streak, having covered in four out of their last five games while winning outright and showing impressive form and momentum that may prove crucial given the overall inconsistency of this season. Their offensive stats point towards high scoring affairs favoring them regularly – particularly when their bat lineup performs at its full potential.


New York Mets Betting Trends


The Mets have played relatively evenly over their last five games but not as well against the spread. While this inconsistency might concern bettors looking to cover, their superior home performance could provide a means of compensating, potentially making them risky but rewarding bets when presented with suitable circumstances.

As the form and the pitching is concerned it seems that the Astros might be a little on the stronger side especially with Blanco on the other side of the pitcher’s mound; his wonderful season so far actually makes difference; but Mets are also not that far behind; their never say die attitude might actually make the difference in this game than you would think.


Speculatively, for choosing Straight Winners the Astros look a more secure and less risky proposition for Over/Under and ATS betting attention may be given to riskier propositions against Mets of which have potential to do well the longer the time they have remaining. It should also be pointed out that changes as far as line-up or possible injuries which might affect the betting line could drastically alter it as a result.
