PITCHING MATCHUP: Astros RH Aaron Sanchez (5-14, 5.60 ERA) vs. Athletics RH Mike Fiers (11-3, 3.30)

Sanchez has won each of his first two starts for the Astros since being acquired from the Toronto Blue Jays. The 27-year-old tossed six hitless innings in a combined no-hitter against the Seattle Mariners on Aug. 3 in his team debut and allowed one run and three runs in five innings against the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday. Sanchez is 1-0 with a 1.00 ERA in two starts against Oakland this season and 1-2 with a 5.12 ERA in six career appearances (four starts).

Fiers struck out eight and allowed three hits over seven shutout innings while beating the Chicago White Sox in his last turn. The 34-year-old pitched well against the Astros on July 23 but settled for a no-decision despite allowing two runs and four hits over six innings. Fiers has a 5.63 ERA in three no-decisions versus Houston this season and is 1-2 with a 5.29 ERA in six career turns against the Astros.

The total has trended from 9 to 10, indicating the potential for an OVER.

Hot Betting Trends: Dolphins vs. Cowboys Week 3

Winning Margin (4-Way): Dallas Cowboys by 14+ Points (-270) – The Dolphins look like one of the worst NFL teams in recent memory through Week 2, and they have been absolutely abysmal this year in almost every phase of the game, averaging just 5.0 PPG on offense and allowing 51.0 PPG on the defensive end. The Cowboys are averaging 33.0 PPG (No. 5 in the NFL), and unless Miami miraculously turns things around before Sunday, the Dolphins could be in for a third consecutive blowout loss.The line on the Dolphins-Cowboys game has gone from Dallas -21 to -22.5 and could climb higher.  Remarkably a quarter of the moneyline action is on Miami, though only 18% of the spread action is on the Dolphins.

NFL Betting – Week 3 Wise Guy Picks

I said last week that it’s common for the betting public to overreact early in the season. That was directed at teams that didn’t play well and still had time to regroup. After the flurry of early-season injuries to quarterbacks, we can officially start to overreact. The big concern this week is for the Pittsburgh Steelers and New Orleans after they each lost their starter. It might be time to fade those teams, at least for this week until we find out how they respond with a new signal-caller.
