Money Line: +160 Houston
There is a lot of value on Houston today with Dallas Keuchel on the mound. Keuchel has performed well this season and in his last home start he gave up a mere 2 earned runs and 5 hits in 6 innings pitched. The Astros are averaging 4.7 runs per game over their last 7 games so they should have no problems providing him the run support needed to pick up his first win of the season. The Royals are really having trouble right now. They have lost 10 of their last 13 games quickly slipping to a .500 record. They have a lot of trouble against left handed starters posting a .224 batting average and scoring 2.9 runs per game. Jeremy Guthrie is coming off a confidence shattering performance against the Angels. Guthrie went 7 innings and gave up 5 earned runs and did not have a single strikeout. He has a serious problem with giving up the long ball allowing 11 home runs in just 8 starts.
