The Houston Astros will be looking for their third straight win on Friday night at 10:05pm EST when they take on the San Diego Padres at Petco Park. MLB sports odds have the Padres -164 favorites in betting picks vs the Astros +154 while online sportsbooks have the over/under total sitting at 6 UNDER (-120).

The Astros took game 1 of the scheduled three-game set on Thursday, winning 6-3 as +200 underdogs on the road in MLB betting odds while the total went OVER the 7.5 posted at sportsbooks.

Houston drove in three runs in the first and tenth innings to win the game after the Padres tied things up in the seventh. Padres pitcher Luke Gregerson walked two consecutive batters and gave up a triple to Michael Bourn in the tenth to seal the loss for San Diego. “I couldn’t find the zone,” Gregerson said after the game. “That’s pretty much it. I was having a hard time with my slider. I couldn’t get it over or my fastball, either.” This will be the first start for Oswalt vs the Padres since May 9th when he allowed six hits and three runs through eight innings in a 4-3 eleventh inning win.
