The Houston Astros have been performing well at home and have a significant offensive advantage over the Miami Marlins. With Framber Valdez on the mound, who has been a consistent performer, the Astros are likely to control the game. The Marlins, despite recent wins, have struggled offensively and defensively throughout the season. The Astros' strong hitting and solid pitching should see them cover the spread.
