#977 ASA PLAY ON 8* Houston Astros -125 or -130 over Milwaukee Brewers, Tuesday at 7:40 PM ET - Action on pitchers. The Astros have won 8 straight games. A good measure of a team is how well they play against other winning teams. Houston is #1 in that category this season. The Astros are 14-8 for 64% winning rate when facing teams with a record above .500 on the season. Compare that to Milwaukee who has a losing record against winning teams. Also, Houston is 14-8 in road games this season as well. The Astros are 11-5 in interleague games this season and we like them here to make it 9 straight wins overall whether these slated starting pitchers go or not. We will mention them here as the projected match-up is JP France versus Colin Rea. Both are off tough starts but the difference is what had transpired prior to that. France had been rolling in both his minor league outings before his call-up plus each of his first two MLB appearances. Both of those were on the road and France should resume his strong road run after a tough home park debut in his most recent start. As for Rea, he has a 6.20 ERA in his last 5 starts and is 0-3 overall this season plus has a 5.00 ERA in his career. In terms of bullpens, the Brewers ERA ranks 21st in the majors while the Astros are ranked #2 in MLB for bullpen ERA. In terms of hitting, the Brewers .234 batting average at home is dead last in the NL. The Astros .255 batting average in road games is #5 in the AL. To top it all off, we get line value because the Astros are on the road so the money line is held down to a reasonable price here. The value is on the Astros in this one and Houston is currently available at a price range of -125 to -130.
