Houston Astros at Washington Nationals
Nationals are playing well and it has been impressive to see them come from behind to take late game wins. Today the Astros will go against Edwin Jackson coming off a complete game winner not even breaking 100 pitch count. Stros in danger of getting swept and has not won a series since opening against Colorado April 6 to 8th. Houston will send Bud Norris to salvage the 4th game of this series. The road has been brutal for Houston 1-5 so far, but Norris has been the man on the mound for 2 of 4 game winners and likely scenario will be another close game. Take the Astros Run line +1.5 with decent shot to take this on the ML, but RL is the strong play. Houston 4-8 ML record is just the opposite of 8-4 RL record. Astros yet to be swept in 2012 and Norris is a good pitcher to back.
HOUSTON ASTROS RL +1.5 at -165(W)
*smaller play on Houston ML at +143(W)
Houston takes this one with ease. Did not need the extra run and win both wagers!
