Disappointing loss in last night’s Marlins-Cardinals Under 8.5 bet, as Jack Flaherty had a tough go, although it’s hard to blame him when shortstop Yairo Munoz is making three errors behind him to churn out some unearned runs. Nothing we can do about it now, though, so let’s just try to get back into the win column tonight going into the weekend.

Yesterday’s Result: Marlins-Cardinals Under 8.5 (LOSS)
*Each bet graded as if it were to win 1 unit
Houston Astros @ Texas Rangers | O/U: 9
8:05 p.m. ET
Probable Pitchers: Gerrit Cole (6-1, 2.20 ERA) vs. Cole Hamels (3-5, 3.63 ERA)
Once instate rivals during their many years in the National League, Cole and Hamels will pick up their rivalry in a different state and in a new league when they start a four-game iteration of the Lone Star Series on Thursday evening.
Technically, these two former All-Stars already resumed the rivalry with their first Texas meeting back on April 13, when Cole and Hamels engaged in a duel that saw both pitchers trade mostly zeroes into the seventh inning. The result was a 3-2 victory for the Astros, powering the under to a decisive win.
Can you expect more of the same this time around?
