Ideally this would be an okay pick even at the current price of -217 Astros if any other pitcher were starting for the A's. Houston has won the last 8 meetings against Oakland.

PITCHING MATCHUP: Athletics RH Frankie Montas (4-2, 3.83 ERA) vs. Astros RH Gerrit Cole (9-2, 2.70)

Montas has cooled off after going 4-1 with a 2.41 ERA over his first five starts of the season, surrendering a total of nine runs and 17 hits over 8 2/3 innings since.  We anticipate he can get red hot once again.

Cole escaped with a no-decision Wednesday at Texas after surrendering four runs and eight hits while registering seven strikeouts in five innings.

The Astros are 15-3 in Cole’s last 18 starts.
