Top Major League Baseball Exposure June 14 - Astros

Written by:
Published on:

The top exposure in Major League Baseball across the board was a mid-afternoon Eastern Time game between the Astros and A's with Houston seeing around 90% of the action at -190.

Houston has won the last seven meetings and is looking to sweep this series on the road.

PITCHING MATCHUP: Astros RH Justin Verlander (8-2, 1.45 ERA) vs. Athletics RH Frankie Montas (3-0, 1.25)

Verlander produced an atypical performance Friday but managed to win his fourth consecutive decision after allowing three runs on five hits and three walks over six innings at Texas.

He is 6-1 with a sterling 0.96 ERA and 0.88 WHIP in seven turns on the road this season. Verlander has made 17 starts against Oakland, going 10-6 with one complete game and a 2.61 ERA.

Montas continued the superb start to his tenure with Oakland this year Friday, when he gave up two runs and six hits over 7 2/3 innings in a win over Kansas City.

With the price what it is and Montas pitching superbly, there will be no play on this game.
