Astros (Rodriguez) vs. Pirates (Karstens) UNDER 7 RUNS

Wandy Rodriguez has a 2.97 ERA on the season and has been on fire since coming off the disabled list in mid June. In his first four starts back, he has thrown three shutouts and has a 2.37 ERA in his last 3 starts. Furthermore, he had been pitching well even before his injury, throwing 5 shutouts in his 10 starts overall and allowing more than 3 runs only twice in those ten starts. He has lots of confidence pitching now when he is healthy and he faces a Pirates team that he is 4-0 with a 1.19 ERA in his last 4 starts against them. Jeff Karstens has a 2.65 ERA for the season and he too has been great as of late. He has been very consistent, allowing 3 runs or less in each of his last 10 starts and 2 runs or less in 9 of them. He also has a 2.61 ERA in his last 3 starts. One last quick fact about Karstens, is that he struggles in day games, with a 4.06 ERA. But today's game will be played at night under the lights, where he is 4-0 with a 1.84 ERA. BET UNDER 7
