Throughout all my handicapping career - I didn't like the streaks. The losing ones - for an obvious reason. And, the winning ones because they tie up your hands and all you can think of is not losing. But, you can't avoid losing and longer the streak goes the fear of losing even a single game paralyzing the thought. My advantage is that I know all this and I know myself - therefore - No Fear! Let's add some more wins to our resume.

Houston Astros will entertain at home the visiting Angels who will send Skaggs to the mound. The Astros will encounter with Cole.

I don't understand the line movement on totals from 8 to 8.5 when the DV code says under 7. And on top of that the pubic is also very supportive of over. I think the line is very weak here and so are the odds with even money for the under. We will attack that line with 5 units.

Under 8.5  +100   5 units

    MK. You like the streaks or not – hey man – this is going to be an Eleventh win in a row. Awesome job!

    Unless the Astros come up with 6 runs in the bottom of the ninth. Right now two runners on the bases and no one out

    In case the Astros go wild and score – the game will be over at 3-2 Astros. Even if they score two runs and then the Grand Slam – that will still make it 6-2 and we win. The only chance this bet loses is if the Astros tie and it goes to extra innings where both teams will start piling up runs. Very unlikely
