I'm working on Big Prices for the Guide. Today I have Jakob Junis with a price of $7. What do you think?

This is why you don't need to be betting on baseball. Junis has been terrible since April 11th and you're betting on him.

1st 2 starts....14 shutout innings. Since 4.91 ERA.

This is why when I used to bet baseball, I would only take dogs.  This is the type of line that I would definitely take the Royals.  Against the Orioles 2-1 makes sense.  Against a regular bad team, that's too much.

Alex the line is Astros -202, Royals +187 at my online site.  What that means is:

Bet $100 on Royals to win $187

Bet $100 on Astros to win $49.50, or bet $202 on Astros to win $100.

Junis is the only starting pitcher tonight who is 0-3 in his last three. They add up to 18.2 IP and a 5.79 ERA, so he's at least hung in there.

He faces Charlie Morton, who is 0-1 in his last three. Fifteen IP and a 6.00 ERA.

Astros, naturally, are the favorite. You put up 220 and get back 200.

I think that's what a line of $200-$220 means. I'm always talking about my bookie, but in fact I don't have one.

And now don't need one.

Astros have won eight straight. Royals have lost three straight.

Astros are 26-11 on the road. Royals are 12-23 at home.

Odds should be more in favor of the 'Stros.

Even so, I'll take the underdog here.

At the end of last year, Junis was killin' it, if he continues to get better than numbers should be better than last year.

I like Junis and Lopez just fine. I don't think I'd be comfortable with them as my #2/#3 pitchers on my staff. I think a good season for Junis would be a high 3's ERA and a 1.2ish WHIP. Lopez with a low 4's ERA and a 1.3ish WHIP. Neither project to be big strikeout guys and we should expect both to struggle to get wins.

I appreciate the input.  I knew innings total would be close.  I am most concerned about the quality of the innings.  After the effort last night from Junis, are there more believers?  Can Reynaldo Lopez also keep it up?  These are the two keys for me.

Sale 200, Lopez 180, Junis 170, McHugh 90, 5 relievers at 70ish = 990.
