Will update with trends once they're released.

The San Francisco Giants offense has been better than expected, but that hasn't stopped their pitching staff from getting rocked and we're starting to see the losses pile up. The Houston Astros obviously aren't nearly as bad as they look and they're a team that will turn things around sooner than later. Greinke is also a pitcher who is starting to find his form, as he's given up eight hits and two runs in his last 11.2 innings, which includes nine strikeouts and just one walk. Greinke has also owned the Giants throughout his career, which includes a .231 allowed batting average and 49 strikeouts in 207 at bats against current Giants hitters.

Give me the Astros and the RL for added value, as they're due for a bounce back victory.
