(MLB) Houston vs. Kansas City, 08/16/2021 8:10 PM, Score: 6 - 7
Point Spread: -1.50 | -107.00 Houston (Away)
Result: Loss
I like the Houston Astros on the runline against the Kansas City Royals on Monday. The Astros had their 4 game win streak broken on Sunday and they will want to get back in the win column here. Before falling 3-1 to the Angels on Sunday, the Astros won their previous 4 games by 3+ runs in each. Jake Odorizzi (5-6, 4.59 ERA) will be starting on the mound for the Astros and he has been alright this season. The team has won 3 games in the last 4 he has started in, all of those wins by 2+ runs. The Kansas City Royals have definitely hit a rough patch getting swept by the Cardinals over the weekend, currently on a 4 game losing skid. The Royals will be starting Carlos Hernandez (3-1, 4.11 ERA) on the mound and he has been having a decent season. He has pitched well in his last 3 starts, allowing no more than 1 earned run in each game. He has yet to see this Astros lineup this season though, and I think he is due for a let down here. The Astros have been pouring on the runs lately and I expect that to continue here. Astros win by -1.5 runs.

T.M. Prediction: 7-3 Astros.
