The fans at Minute Maid Park will be treated to a game between the Oakland Athletics and the Houston Astros when they take their seats on Thursday.

Daniel Gossett will be the starting pitcher for the Athletics on this day. Right hander Gossett is 1-2 this season with a 4.50 ERA.

Gossett’s opponent in this one will be Brad Peacock. The Astros right hander has a 2.82 ERA to go along with a 4-1 record this season.

Gossett will fill in for injured right-hander Jharel Cotton and make his fourth major-league start – and first since recording his initial career victory on Saturday, when he allowed two unearned runs and five hits in six innings against the White Sox in Chicago. The outing also was the first in which the 24-year-old native of South Carolina did not surrender a home run. Gossett hopes to avenge a hard-luck loss to Houston on June 19 in which he gave up two runs and struck out six over 6 2/3 frames.

Peacock returns to the mound to make his seventh start of the season after spending time on paternity leave. The 29-year-old Floridian last pitched on June 19, when he defeated Gossett and the Athletics in Oakland after giving up one run and four hits while registering eight strikeouts in 5 2/3 innings. Peacock is 2-4 with a 4.47 ERA in 13 career games (10 starts) against Oakland, including a pair of relief appearances in April.

Oddsmakers currently have the Astros listed as 194-moneyline favorites versus the Athletics, while the game’s total is sitting at 9½.

The Houston Astros attempt to win their second series against the Oakland Athletics in less than two weeks when they host their American League West rivals on Thursday afternoon for the rubber match of their three-game set. Houston evened the set with Wednesday’s 11-8 triumph after sweeping a four-game matchup in Oakland from June 19-22.

The Astros pounded out 17 hits in the win, with George Springer registering a pair of doubles and his franchise-record ninth leadoff home run of the season. The 27-year-old slugger, who has gone deep in three straight contests, is four leadoff blasts away from tying the major-league mark set in 2003 by Alfonso Soriano. Khris Davis belted two of the five home runs launched by Oakland, which had won the first four contests of its six-game road trip. The Athletics could be without Yonder Alonso on Thursday as the first baseman exited Wednesday’s loss after fouling a ball off his right knee in the eighth inning.

Last time out for Houston, they were a 11-8 winner as they battled the Athletics on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Astros at -165 were rewarded, while the 19 combined runs moved the game OVER for totals bettors.

In their last action, Oakland was a 11-8 loser on the road against the Astros. Bettors on Houston at -165 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (19) sent OVER bettors home happy as well.

MLB BASEBALL SPORTS BETTING TIPS

1. Springer is five homers shy of matching the career-high total of 29 he hit last season, and his 24 blasts are the most by a member of the Astros prior to the All-Star break since Lance Berkman belted that amount in 2006.

2. Cotton’s start has been pushed back from Thursday to Saturday against Atlanta due to a blister on his right thumb.

3. Houston RHP Charlie Morton (lat) made his second rehab start for Triple-A Fresno on Tuesday and could rejoin the Astros’ rotation on Sunday.

Vegas Coverage pick and prediction:

Houston Astros  will win outright at -194 and the game will go over 9½ runs according to scamdicappers scamdicappers.com.

PREDICTION: Astros 7, Athletics 3 at bovada-logo-top-book.
