MLB Wagering Advice: Aces Duel in the Lone Star State as Sabathia Faces Fister
Posting a number of “quality starts” recently, RHP Doug Fister (6-4 ERA 3.42) toes the rubber for Houston tonight. Fister has recovered from a sluggish April as he allowed three runs or less during 13 of his last 15 starts. His last outing was a beauty as pitched seven innings and allowed just four hits during a 7-0 Astros win over the Athletics in Oakland. We see Fister staying hot in this contest.
Appearing to have found a fountain of youth, LHP CC Sabathia (5-8 ERA 4.04) gets the call to the bump for New York. Solid during the first three months of the season, after allowing 27 runs over 76.2 innings pitched, Sabathia may be running out of gas as he has allowed 18 runs over 23.2 innings pitched during four July starts. Back the 'Stros with a ten-unit (-141) ML bet at William Hill.
