Fargo's 10* MLB Wednesday Sweet Spot (156-113 MLB Run)
2018-10-17 20:35:00

This is a play on the HOUSTON ASTROS for our MLB Wednesday Sweet Spot. Boston reclaimed home field advantage with an 8-2 win on Tuesday behind a gem from Nathan Eovaldi. Now it is up to the Astros to take home field back and most importantly, avoid a 3-1 hole heading into Game Five on Thursday. The game was close through seven innings, but the Red Sox posted five runs in the eighth inning, breaking it open and seizing back the momentum with two straight wins. The Astros loss at home in Game Three was only their second in their past 12 playoff games at Minute Maid Park since the start of last season. The Astros are 7-0 in their last seven games after scoring two runs or less in their previous game. Charlie Morton has been the forgotten man in this deep Astros rotation but he has a chance to show what he is capable of tonight. He pitched in the regular-season finale against the Orioles and worked just three innings by design, capping an odd final month that saw him limited to 15 innings in four starts because of lingering right shoulder discomfort. This time of year, rest is your best friend and Morton has plenty of it. He is 9-2 with a 3.21 ERA and 1.09 WHIP in 16 home starts. Rick Porcello has made one start and two relief appearances and he has been solid, allowing just one run over 6.2 innings but he has struck out only three. He has pitched three times against the Astros this season, going 1-0 with a 4.15 ERA. Here, we play against road underdogs with a moneyline of +100 to +150 with a winning percentage of .620 or better after having won three of their last four games, playing a team with a winning record. This situation is 173-88 (66.3 percent) since 1997. 10* (914) Houston Astros
