Framber Valdez vs. Eduardo Rodriguez
the first show
6:40 PM ET

Jules Posner: Framber Valdez enters Monday night’s start with a 2.24 afternoon road. Although his 3.53 FIP and 3.45 xFIP on the road indicate he’s been outperforming on his road ends, he’ll face the wRC+’s 25th-ranked Tigers attack on his home turf against LHP over the past month.

On the flip side, Eduardo Rodriguez may be overestimated a bit in this match. While his 3.99 in-house ERA isn’t much optimism, that number is inflated by 4.72 in-house FIP and 5.23 xFIP in-house.

The Astros had their seventh best WRC+ game against LHP on the road over the past month, so this could be a dip for Rodriguez. Additionally, the Tigers’ bulls, which have been solid for most of the season, have fallen off significantly over the past few weeks.

While both starters might be due to some regression, the Astros have such a huge advantage all around in this match that their running streak isn’t in the -2.5 region. Therefore, -1.5 at -120 is a really good value. Run the Astros’ running streak as long as it is -1.5.

Houston Astros vs Detroit Tigers

pick or pick
Eduardo Rodriguez Over 3.5 hits
the book
BetMGM

Tanner McGrath: Along with Javier Paez, Eduardo Rodriguez was the big name, and a great signing with the Tigers in the latest season. Both flop, tigers are in last place in the Central Asian region.

E-Rod has only made 12 starts this season. He did not contact the club between mid-May and mid-August.

But when he promotes, he scores the alarms. He’s made at least four Ks in eight of those 12 starts, and in 36 of the 46 he’s started dating back to the start of 2021 (78%).

Houston is a tough football club, and the Astros connect more than anyone else in the league and hit low in the league against the Southpaws (18.1%). However, Rodriguez had no trouble with the Astros, cheering at least four players in four straight games.

Rodriguez scored eight goals the first time he faced Houston this season, which only allowed him to run for 6 and 2/3 runs of action.

Action Labs Player Props Tool projects E-Rod for 4.9 beats today. However, we can bet over 3.5 Ks in extra money.

Pittsburgh Pirates vs Cincinnati Reds

Bryce Wilson vs. Mike Minor
the first show
6:40 PM ET

Tony Sartori: The main reason we support Cincinnati in this game is Pittsburgh’s anticipated starting pitch: Bryce Wilson right. With 20 script appearances this season, Wilson is 2-8 with a 6.11 ERA and 1.49 WHIP.

While those stats are shocking, his metrics are pretty poor. This year, Wilson owns .365 xwOBA, .303 xBA and .492 xSLG, so positive regression shouldn’t be a concern.

With this game going into disrepair, we must continue to fade Wilson. Over his last five starts, he’s been 0-2 with a 6.85 ERA and 1.45 WHIP.

Yet Wilson is one of the bulls’ weakest points in baseball. Since August 1, the Pirates’ Monument to Pirate has only ranked 26th in the league in ERA, 26th in WHIP, 19th in BA, and 18th in woopaand 20 inches FIP.

After losing 16 of their last 20 games (80%), we should expect Pittsburgh’s bad season to continue in this game.
