Atlanta (64-48) at Houston (48-63), 8:05 p.m. EDT, Sports.com Line: Atlanta -144, Houston +134 Total: 8
The Astros had lost four straight before beating Atlanta last night with six runs in the 7th inning against the Braves bullpen. J.A. Happ (2-1, 4.03 ERA), who came over from the Phillies in the Roy Oswalt trade, will try to rebound from being bombed in his last start against the Cardinals (7 ER in 1 inning). With Philadelphia, Happ was 2-0 with a 1.78 ERA in five career starts against the Braves. His mound opponent will be Jair Jurrjens (4-4, 4.48 ERA), who is 0-4 with a 7.63 ERA on the road this season. Betting Lines
FoxSheets tells us to play against road teams (Atlanta) after a game where the bullpen was rocked for 6 or more earned runs against opponent with a hot bullpen whose ERA is under 3.00 the last 15 games. (67-22 over the last 5 seasons.) (75.3%, +41.6 units. Rating = 4*). That’s reason enough to go with the home underdog. Football Odds
