Astros vs Rangers Pick, Prediction, & Best Bet
Astros Moneyline (-105)
Astros (Urquidy) (-105)
The Astros got the win last night and they will be trying to even up the series tonight. They will face Andrew Heaney who they come in hitting .281 against but if you take away Maldonado and Tucker’s numbers, the Astros lineup is hitting .315 against him.
The Astros beat Heaney 13-6 in early September & 5-3 in early July.
Andrew Heaney only has 1 career start in the playoffs and he only lasted 3.2 innings.
Jose Urquidy will pitch for the Astros and he’s held this Rangers lineup to a .218 avg in 78 at bats.
Urquidy also has plenty of Postseason experience over the last few years with 13 games pitched in the playoffs.
He did not face this Rangers lineup this season but I like his long term history against them.
