The Astros will play a host to the interstate rival Rangers in a rubber game.
The idea of pitting Verlander and Colon says from the beginning that the teams consider this game as a very important showcase feature on the night many important baseball games got postponed while NBA playoffs are drawing much more attention and the ratings.
However, this matchup is nothing someone can overlook.
After the first 4 games this season between the teams all ended in a run lines wins (3 times for the Astros and once for the Rangers) - these series produced so far a single run won games. I strongly believe we are going to see another thriller tonight. While the Astros Run Line is attractive at -145, the odds movement clearly show that the real value lays within the Rangers +1.5 at +125 where it moved from +155. That is a pretty strong movement in reverse direction when 9.5 dollars out of every 10 supports Astros Run Line.
