Houston Astros at Boston Red Sox

Jose Urquidy vs. Eduardo Rodriguez

Opening Line Red Sox -105; Total 8.5

Current Line Red Sox -120; Total 9

The Red Sox are 4-5 in Eduardo Rodriguez home starts in which he was favored between -100 and -150 (also 5-4 to the under). Rodriguez got bombed in both starts against the Astros this year. He has gone 9.1 innings with 12 earned runs, 9 strikeouts, and 5 walks. 

Rodriguez pitched well last time out against the Rays at home. It looked like he made some adjustments to where he started his delivery on the mound which helped him hit the corners better. Rodriguez is the type of pitcher that lives on all 4 corners in order to succeed, but it also is what makes him unpredictable.

Urquidy had one start against the Red Sox on May 31st and he went 6 innings, striking out 9, with just 1 walk and 1 earned run.

The Red Sox are either 1st or 2nd in every major hitting category when facing right-handed pitchers at home since September 1st while the Astros are top 5 against left-handed pitchers on the road.
