Free Betting Pick: Houston Astros -125
The Astros are on the road in this game, but the Astros have been able to play good so far this year at times. Look for the Astros to actually come into the game here and play great and potentially run Ohtani off the mound early again. The difference is Ohtani will actually make it through at least an inning in the game, but not much more as the Astros hitters are able to play consistent baseball to bring home the win. Final Score, Houston Astros win 6-2.
