Result: Loss

*3 Star MLB Dog of the Day* The Houston Astros aren't a good team, and the Texas Rangers are a very good team. It might seem strange that I am siding with the Astros here, but that shows just how much I think of Wandy Rodriguez. Rodriguez is dominating at home, and Neftali Feliz is still unproven as a starter. The Astros are 12-8 at home this season. Texas is a big favorite here, so we don't have to pay much juice at all to get Houston +1.5. Rodriguez has a 1.99 ERA this year, so I expect this game to stay close. Take Houston +1.5.
