Under is 14-3-2 in Houston last 19 road games and Houston are 37-14 in their last 51 road games and Houston are 43-21 in their last 64 Friday games. Under is 7-1 in Oakland last 8 home games and under is 9-2 in Oakland  last 11 overall and under is 9-2 in Oakland last 11 on grass.

Nobody likes to go against the Astros but I think going with the hotter team is the way to go with the plus odds...
