Why The Astros Could Cover The Spread

Hunter Brown is having a pretty good rookie campaign. He has a 5-2 record with a 3.61 ERA, 1.24 WHIP, and 74 strikeouts in 62 1/3 innings pitched. Brown has at least eight strikeouts in his last four starts, so the stuff is there. If he can be on his best game, he is very hard to hit. On the road this season, Brown is 4-0 with a 3.28 ERA and 43 strikeouts in 35 2/3 innings pitched. He is comfortable away from home, so the Astros will have a chance to win this game.

Houston has already faced Gausman this season. Although Gausman has been pitching well overall, the Astros are one of the few teams that have roughed him up. In 4 2/3 innings, Houston scored eight runs on seven hits and hit two home runs. The Astros do not need to repeat that performance, but four or five runs will help them cover the spread. Having seen Gausman already, the Astros know what they are up against and should be able to have a good game.

Why The Blue Jays Could Cover The Spread

Gausman is having a fantastic season for Toronto. He has a 2.76 ERA through 12 starts this season. Gausman also has a 1.12 WHIP while striking 100 in 75 innings pitched. Gausman has not given up more than two earned runs in each of his last five starts and nine of his 12 total starts. With him on the mound, the Blue Jays are very confident that they can win.

Toronto has a good offense if everything clicks at once. Bichette, Varsho, Vladimir Guerrero Jr., George Springer, and Whit Merrifield are all solid hitters. Hunter Brown is a tough matchup, but he does allow opponents to hit the ball hard a good amount. If the Blue Jays can hit the ball hard and find some barrels in this game, they will cover the spread.

Final Astros-Blue Jays Prediction & Pick

This is going to be a fun pitching matchup. The under is definitely in play here. I do expect a lot closer of a game in this one, and with the Astros being the underdogs I will roll with them to cover the spread.

Final Astros-Blue Jays Prediction & Pick: Astros +1.5 (-184), Over 7.5 (-118)
