MLB betting on Monday includes the finale of a four-game series between the Cincinnati Red and Houston Astros.
It should be a good pitching matchup as Bronson Arroyo is expected to be matched up against Mike Hampton. Gamblers who bet on MLB action might take a shot with the underdog Reds in this matchup.
MLB betting scheduling information shows that the Reds continue on the road after this game as they travel to Chicago. Before this series began the Red has not had much success in Houston going 3-7 in the last 10 games. In fact, the Red haven’t had a lot of success anywhere against the Astros as before Friday they were 4-16 in the last 20 games against the Astros as MLB betting stats show.
The Reds could be the way to go in this MLB betting matchup on Monday since Arroyo pitched well in his last outing. He allowed one run and four hits against the Brewers in 6 1/3 innings. Hampton is coming off an even better effort in his last start. He tossed six shutout innings against the Pirates and struck out eight. He is 6-5 in his career against the Reds with a 3.95 ERA as gamblers who bet on MLB games should be aware.
It is early in the season but the Reds are starting to show they can be competitive in MLB betting on the road. If Arroyo is healthy then he is always a threat to win on the road for gamblers who bet on MLB odds. Cincinnati could be a nice MLB betting underdog on Monday in Houston.
Houston started the MLB betting season poorly, especially at home. They struggled to score runs, which is unusual considering they have a strong lineup that can impact the MLB betting odds. The Astros should be a team that puts up numbers at home in MLB betting, especially with a lineup that features Lance Berkman, Hunter Pence and Carlos Lee. The Astros have definitely had a lot of success at home in the past against the Reds.
Looking at the MLB betting total we see that the under is 10-9-1 in the last twenty meetings between the two teams. The under was 3-6-1 in the last 10 games at Houston before the start of this MLB betting series.
