League: MLB, USA
LESS THAN 8.5 RUNS IN THE GAMEFinal result: 3 - 2
Profit: 13.76 - 8 = 5.76
Miami Marlins hasn't achieved much in the average runs per game. Overall, they scored average 3.59, and 3.22 runs away from home. In the last 14 road games, they scored a total of 39 runs, but remember that only on one game they scored 9 runs, so if you look at other games, without this one, their average is only a little over 2 runs per game.
The starting pitcher for the Houston Astros is Aneury Rodriguez, to whom this will be the first start of the season. In the minors he was bad with 1-3 and 4.97 ERA. Last season as a rookie had eight starts and 1-6 with 5.27 ERA. Not expect much from him, but as already noted, neither the offensive line's of Marlins.
On the other hand, the Marlins starting pitcher, the Anibal Sanchez (2-0, 2.43 ERA), should be good enough to keep the Houston Astros on a small number of runs. Sanchez was on each of five starts this season, allowed two runs or less. In his career against the Astros was always good, in the six starts against them is 3-1 and 2.48 ERA. Expect him to throw for at least 7 innings tonight, and even Marlins bullpen is not so bad so you should expect to retain Astros lineup on less than their average of 4.55 runs per game.
