MLB Same Game Parlay Odds & Picks: Rangers vs. Astros
- Leg 1: Framber Valdez Over 6.5 Ks (-122)
- Leg 2: Jose Altuve 2+ Total Bases (-125)
- Leg 3: Yordan Alvarez 2+ Total Bases (-115)
The Astros will send Framber Valdez to the hill against the Rangers. Valdez has a 3.55 xFIP, but more importantly, he has struck out 21.4% of batters faced in the last 30 days.
The Rangers’ projected lineup has struck out 29.9% of the time against lefties in that same time frame. It’s safe to say that Valdez will have plenty of opportunities to earn strikeouts against the Rangers.
Meanwhile, Cole Ragans will take the hill for the Rangers. Through his last 22 plate appearances, he has a 7.12 xFIP. He’s walked more than he’s struck out between those 22 batters and will now take on a couple of hard-hitting, consistent batters in the Astros’ lineup.
Jose Altuve is hitting a .320 ISO with a wOBA of .455 against lefties through his last 28 plate appearances against them. On the other hand, Yordan Alvarez has hit a .588 ISO with a wOBA of .557 against lefties in his last 21 plate appearances.
Look for the Astros to control today’s game.
