Stephen Nover Astros vs Dodgers Expert Prediction

Play on: Astros +163

Start Time: August 03 2021, 10:10 PM

Is there anything that can propel you to step in front of Walker Buehler, who just finished July going 3-0 in five starts with a 1.67 ERA and 38 strikeouts in 32 1/3 innings?

Yes. Taking the Astros at a huge plus price like this.

The Dodgers haven’t been sharp going 6-8 in their last 14 games. Houston has a better overall record than LA, the second-best mark in baseball.

The Astros aren’t exactly pitching a stiff either going with Lance McCullers, who is 8-2 with a 3.23 ERA. McCullers has a 1.64 ERA in 11 regular-season lifetime innings facing the Dodgers.

Much was made of the Dodgers picking up Max Scherzer at the trade deadline. The Astros didn’t draw nearly that kind of attention. Houston, though, quietly upgraded its bullpen picking up four relievers, including closers Kendall Graveman and Yimi Garcia.
