Betting Impact:

Oakland will send rookie Jesus Luzardo to the mound on Sunday. He has yet to record a decision in the young season, but has pitched to a 2.31 ERA. He has a 3.00 ERA in his career against the Astros. The Astros will counter with fellow rookie Cristian Javier who will look to end Houston's four-game losing streak. The A's have opened up a 4.5 game lead over Houston in the AL West.
