Philadelphia Phillies vs Houston Astros MLB Preview

A match-up between the worst team in the National League East and the best in the American League West has gone as most expected it would so far. Two wins from the first two encounters have set up the Houston Astros with a chance of a three game clean sweep over the Philadelphia Phillies. It doesn't require a whole lot of analysis to see how the final MLB game is likely to develop.

Key Players to Watch

32-year-old right hander Mike Fiers will take the ball for his 20th start of the season for the away side. His recent record is 7-4 with averages of 3.59 ERA, 1.254 WHIP and 107 strikeouts with 38 walks over 107.2 innings since the campaign began. Also likely to affect our betting tips is 25-year-old Venezuelan batter Odubel Herrera who has 100 hits, 42 runs and 36 RBI in a fruitful season. He didn't have the best of days against the Stros last time out, however.

Both Teams Recent Form

Let’s scrutinise the clubs’ latest fixtures before divulging our Philadelphia Phillies vs Houston Astros betting pick. The home side are 2-3 in their last 5. They surprised the Brewers to take a 2-1 series win last week, but Houston have extinguished any new spark of confidence by inflicting 2 convincing defeats in a row on the Phillies. The Astros were 3-2 from the 5 games before their set started against the Fightin’ Phils.

Philadelphia Phillies vs Houston Astros Prediction

Unsurprisingly our Philadelphia Phillies vs Houston Astros prediction is still an away win. The Stros are clinical against what they would consider as lesser opposition. They are 8-0 in their last 8 interleague road games against teams with a losing record. They are also 8-0 in their last 8 against opponents from the National League East.

Our free pick opens with the selection of an outright win on the money line for Houston @ 5/7 with 10Bet. Elsewhere the same bookmakers have odds of 20/21 for there to be over 8.0 runs.
