Kansas City Royals at Houston Astros Picks & Betting Tips


Houston can bounce back from Sunday night’s loss with a victory in Game 1 of this series.

Zack Greinke will be the starting pitcher for the Astros and he has been in strong form in his last few appearances.

  • Houston Astros are 10-5 in their last 15 home games
  • Houston Astros are 8-2 in the last 10 games in which they scored 4+ runs
  • Houston Astros have scored 4+ runs in 7 of their 9 home games this month
  • Houston Astros pitcher Zack Greinke has allowed just 13 hits in his last 19 innings
  • Houston Astros pitcher Zack Greinke has allowed only 4 runs in his last 19 innings

Head To Head


  • Kansas City Royals lead the 2021 regular season series 3-1

Kansas City Royals Form


Kansas City head to Houston in good form having bounced back from a four-game skid a couple of weeks back.

The Royals bounced back from being swept at home by St Louis with three consecutive wins over the Astros.

They dropped Game 4 of that series but responded well by sweeping the White Sox over three games in Chicago.

Houston Astros Form


Houston’s form has been mixed throughout August so far, with some highs and some loes.

They dropped three games to the Royals in Kansas City last week but responded well when they returned home.

The Astros racked up 12 runs in a blow-out win over Seattle and then topped that with 15 runs in a another one-sided beatdown of the Mariners 24 hours later.

Houston did drop the final game of that series with Seattle though, so they will be eager to bounce back.

Verdict

Houston’s form has been mixed but starting Greinke is a big reason for my confidence in them here.

Greinke has been in fine form over his last 19 innings and if he can continue in that vein, the Astros may not need a huge run total to win.
