Although Houston (-165) hasn’t announced its starter yet, rest assured that we’ll see either fellow lefty Dallas Keuchel or the unbeatable righthander Justin Verlander. Both pitchers have Cy Young awards on their resume, and have been playing some outstanding baseball. Keuchel has surrendered a total of four runs over his previous three starts (18 innings pitched) while Verlander has been basically unhittable since joining the Houston Astros. He’s won all six games that he started as an Astro, and has given up only four runs.
In the 2017 regular season, Houston won the season series but October is when things start heating up in MLB Postseason. The winner will be determined by who is able to carry momentum into each game and who will capitalize on the other’s mistakes. It’s finally here – playoff baseball.
