Cleveland Indians vs. Houston Astros

MLB Baseball: Thursday, April 25th 2019 8:10 PM EST TIME

Here are today’s Top three picks

The Cleveland Indians are looking to take the battle to one of the AL’s best as they head into Houston to take on the Astros. As for the Astros they are looking to bounce back from a couple of tough losses.

Indians Notes

The Cleveland Indians are looking to get back to their winning ways as they enter this important series with the Houston Astros. As for the Indians, they enter this series with losing the past three of four games with practically losing back to back series against the Atlanta Braves and Miami Marlins. The Indians split the two games series with the Marlins a couple of days ago. Now they head onto the road where they have won the past three of six games.

2. Leonys Martin (L) CF
3. Jose Ramirez (S) 3B
4. Carlos Santana (S) 1B
5. Carlos Gonzalez (L) RF
6. Jason Kipnis (L) 2B
7. Kevin Plawecki (R) C
8. Jake Bauers (L) LF
9. Mike Freeman (L) SS

As for the Indians, they will be sending out Trevor Bauer. Bauer is one of the best in the Indians rotation, but had a hard time getting around the Braves in his recent start. He reached 120 pitches after just 6 1/3 innings and could not continue any longer.

Astros Notes

The Houston Astros are ready to get back into shape as they are ready to bounce back their couple of bad recent series. Just like the Cleveland Indians, the Astros have won only the past two of five games with losing back to back series against the Texas Rangers and possible the Minnesota Twins. The Astros take on the Twins Wednesday night with the series all tied up. For the Astros they are looking to have yet another long winning streak as their 10-game winning streak to start the season helped them to their current 14-9 overall record. They sit in the second spot in the AL West.

1. George Springer (R) RF
2. Jose Altuve (R) 2B
3. Alex Bregman (R) 3B
4. Michael Brantley (L) DH
5. Carlos Correa (R) SS
6. Josh Reddick (L) LF
7. Aledmys Diaz (R) 1B
9. Jake Marisnick (R) CF
For the Astros, it is unknown who will be starting as of Wednesday morning, but they do have one of the best lineups in the league that can easily help out who is starting. The Astros come into this game with having a team batting average of .280. They are scoring an average of 4.9 runs per game.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Leaning with the Indians here in Game 1. Cleveland will be on rest while the Astros will be playing into the night with the Twins. Also Bauer loves playing against the Stros as he the Indians are 8-0 in Bauers last 8 starts vs. the Astros.

Prediction: INDIANS

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Total line is way too low here. Even though choosing the Under might be like the play with Bauer on the mound, always put money on the actually number and not the lineups. The Over is 3-0-1 in Bauers last 4 starts vs. Astros as well as 6-1 in the last 7 meetings.

Prediction: OVER
