You could play this for u5.5 as well for less juice, but while we’re hot I’m cool laying more juice. This is a really simple bet, six quick outs in the second inning and for Houston to not go absolutely bananas on Tarik Skubal day.

Skubal has been an absolute delight and the main bright spot for my hometown Tigers. He is actually better on the road this year with a 1.80 ERA in 35 innings pitched. If you take away Jose Abreu's stats against Skubal who has been strangely good against him then Skubal has a more than fine track record against these bats.

Hunter Brown is someone we just need three clean outs from. His season stats are still nothing to be proud of but he has been significantly better as of late and has stringed together some nice stuff making him look like he did last year. This game has a seven run total for a reason, this feels good!

Not going to overthink this one, two hot pitchers and likely avoiding Yordan Alvarez, Jose Altuve, Riley Greene here. We have won 11 of our last 13 bets, I know the juice isn’t everyone's favorite but you only really pay the juice if the bet loses. I’ve made up my mind, we’re gonna win this one too. Let's roll!!!
