Why The Astros Could Cover The Spread

Javier has been having a great season and the Astros perform well when he is on the mound. In his 10 starts, Houston has a record of 8-2 and they have covered a -1.5 spread in seven of those 10 starts. In the month of May, Javier has taken his game to another level. He has a 2.52 ERA in 25 innings pitched while allowing just 12 hits and striking out 29. The Athletics have the worst batting average in the MLB coming into this game, so Javier should have no problem shutting them down. Oakland has also struck out the third most times in the MLB, so Javier has a chance to rack up the strikeouts as he shuts down the Athletics.

Why The Athletics Could Cover The Spread

Houston does not hit for a lot of power outside of Yordan Alvarez. Luis Medina has allowed seven home runs in four starts this season, but he should not be worried in this one. Medina needs to attack the zone and go right after the Astros lineup. In each of his four starts, Medina has lasted at least five innings. He had a rough outing in his first start, but the rest of his starts have been respectable. Medina will need to shutdown the Astros as much as possible in this game because he will not get a lot of run support. If Medina can hold the Astros to two or three runs, the Athletics will cover this spread.

Final Astros-Athletics Prediction & Pick

More times than not, you will win if you bet against the Athletics. Oakland is just 20-34 against the spread this season and Houston has covered in both games this series. Expect the Astros to roll through the Athletics and complete the sweep Sunday, especially with Cristian Javier on the mound.

Final Astros-Athletics Prediction & Pick: Astros -1.5 (-154), Over 8 (-115)
