7:10 p.m. ET: Houston Astros (45-27) at New York Mets (47-27)
This Interleague showdown features two of the top three teams in baseball going head-to-head. In tonight's series opener, Houston taps lefty Framber Valdez (7-3, 2.90 ERA) and New York counters with righty Carlos Carrasco (8-3, 4.42 ERA). This line opened at virtual pick'em with the Astros listed as a slight -110 road favorite and the Mets a +100 home dog. Sharps have pounced on the Astros at the short chalk price, steaming Houston up from -110 to -120. Non-division road favorites are 139-73 (66%) this season. Favorites who made the playoffs last season against teams who did not are 290-155 (65%). When both teams are coming off a day off, as is the case here, the favorite is 58-31 (65%). The Astros are 39-18 as a favorite, 25-16 on the road and 31-19 against righties. Houston leads the season series 2-1. The Astros are 7-2 in Valdez's last nine starts. Meanwhile, Carrasco has an ERA of 5.33 in the month of June.
8:10 p.m. ET: Texas Rangers (35-37) at Kansas City Royals (26-46)
The Rangers won last night's series opener 10-4, taking care of business as -150 road favorites. In tonight's rematch, Texas hands the ball to righty Jon Gray (3-3, 4.18 ERA) and Kansas City counters with fellow righty Jonathan Heasley (1-3, 4.14 ERA). This line opened with the Rangers listed as a -130 road favorite and the Royals a +115 home dog. Pros have hammered Texas, steaming the Rangers up from -130 to -145. Non-division road favorites are 139-73 (66%) this season. The Royals are just 19-38 as dogs, 13-24 at home and 16-32 against righties. Texas holds a big edge on the mound, sporting a team ERA of 3.94 compared to 5.02 for Kansas City. The Rangers are 9-6 over their last 15 games. Meanwhile, the Royals are just 6-9 over their last 15 games. Texas is +9 in run differential. Kansas City is -99. The Rangers lead the season series 3-1. The Rangers have won Gray's last three starts and Gray has an ERA of 2.64 in June.

In tonight's series opener, San Diego starts lefty Sean Manaea (3-3, 3.87 ERA) and Arizona sends out righty Zac Gallen (4-2, 2.92 ERA).
