How To Bet On Houston Astros

A cynic would view the 2016 season as a regression for the Houston Astros but a realist sees the year for was it truly was - a blip on the radar. [+]

After nearly making it to the World Series in 2015, the young Astros fell back and out of the playoff picture but that should only be a temporary situation. This is one of the best young teams in baseball and soon enough, the word young will be removed from that description - not because the Astros are getting older but because this is team is getting better and better.

Houston, spearheaded by one of baseball's best young infields, has a chance to be one of the best teams in baseball for years to come.

Houston Astros betting tips

In 2015, there were not many more masterful pitchers in baseball other than Dallas Keuchel. Keuchel turned the collective baseball world on its head in 2015. Going 20-8, the 28-year old earned a plethora of honors, chief among them the AL Cy Young Award and his first All-Star game appearance.

Just when it appeared that Keuchel had established himself as one of the arms in the league, he slumped to 9-12 with a 4.55 ERA in 2016 before shoulder inflammation sidetracked his season.

Getting back the Cy Young Award-winning Keuchel will be a major step toward the Astros returning to postseason play.

Bringing In The Vets

One of the theories on why Houston slid back to an 84-78 slate in 2016 was the fact that the plethora of young stars that comprise the nucleus of this ball club had no veteran presence to turn to as a calming influence in times of trouble and strife.

The Astros addressed that need in the offseason, adding experienced, proven talent such as Carlos Beltran, Brian McCann and Josh Reddick. As much as they are known for their talent, all three of these players own reputations as sterling leaders in a clubhouse environment.
