Sean Zerillo: Oakland Athletics at Houston Astros
Tanner Roark (3-1, 2.70 ERA) vs. Wade Miley (13-4, 3.35 ERA)
- Athletics Moneyline: +146
- Astros Moneyline: -156
- Over/Under: 10
- First pitch: 8:10 p.m. ET
Starting with line value, I see the Athletics as a 44.6% underdog in this game, equivalent to fair odds of +124; so I show more than 20 cents of value on Oakland.
They’re also coming off of a 15-0 drubbing at the hands of the Astros, and the public will be all over Houston on Tuesday – with their offense having scored 36 runs in their past two games.
