Major League Baseball Top Exposures April 7: Astros

There is little if any real incentive for folks to place a bet on the Houston Astros with Gerrit Cole starting and a price of -260, yet the Astros are among the most wagered on sides this day.

The reigning World Series champs will face a San Diego Padres team that has thus far managed two wins on the season.

Despite the high price, upwards of 90% of the money line bets were coming in on Houston for this game.

Cole gave up a solo homer in the first inning Sunday and permitted only one more hit and three walks over his last six frames against the Texas Rangers, fanning 11 to get the win.

Cole enjoyed great success as a member of the Pittsburgh Pirates in six career starts versus the Padres, going 4-2 with a 1.96 ERA with 43 strikeouts in 36 2/3 innings.

Padres RH Bryan Mitchell (0-1, 9.00 ERA)  lasted five innings in Monday's loss to the Colorado Rockies, surrendering five runs on eight hits and three walks while failing to record a strikeout.

The Padres are 3-12 in their last 15 overall.

A win by the Padres would be difficult to fathom under these circumstances.

The Los Angeles Dodgers come into this affair having clearly made their mark on the 2021 MLB season. With a 106-56 record to end the season, they easily beat out the Padres, Rockies, and Diamondbacks, in the NL West. The rest of baseball with exception of the Rays, (100 wins) were not close, not slightly in the ballpark, not even kind of!
