Price has been solid so far this season, but he's been hittable on the road where he has an ERA over four and is allowing a .252 batting average. Peacock has given up one run and struck out 24 batters in his last 17 innings, and he has a 2.89 ERA with an allowed batting average of .210 at home. The Houston Astros are also in one of these grooves where they're putting up crooked numbers consistently and not losing games. Give me Houston on the low line here today.100%

Betting Prediction for Boston Red Sox vs Houston Astros on May 25, 2019, 7:15 PM ET
Free Betting Prediction: Boston will Win and the Total will go Under .
Brad Peacock goes head-to-head with David Price and the potent Red Sox lineup tonight and although Peacock has pretty good numbers this year, you need to look at his strength of schedule. He's beaten the White Sox, Tigers, Royals, Indians, A's, Mariners and Rangers. None of those teams hold a candle to the lineup he faces tonight. Boston is a +110 underdog on the road in Houston.Red Sox vs Astros Game Center. Original matchup: http://bit.ly/2WmMADw
Fansided: Red Sox lefty David Price exits early from start against Houston Astros
It's never a good sign when your starting pitcher can't make it through the first inning. That's the unenviable situation the Boston Red Sox found themselves in against the Houston Astros.
David Price was removed after facing three batters and tossing 15 pitches. He recorded two outs, including a strikeout, while allowing a hit. It appeared Price was on his way to a solid start but the Red Sox coaching staff clearly saw something wasn't right, quickly signaling for Colten Brewer to get up and warming in the bullpen.
His velocity was down a bit with his four-seam fastball barely cracking 90 mph.
Over the Monster: Red Sox at Astros lineup: Houston vs. Astro's dad
The Red Sox (27-24), fresh off a game against the Astros (34-18) that they could have won but for some "Little League" defense, as this site's editor called it, look to even the score down in Houston tonight at 7:15 p.m (FOX). It's David Price against Brad Peacock, with no J.D. Martinez to speak of, again, with Christian Vazquez taking over the DH spot in the starting lineup with the big slugger still ailing. On Houston's side, George Springer, also dogged by injuries, gets the day off, pushing replacement second baseman Aledmys Diaz into the leadoff spot.
Fansided: Astros beat Red Sox 4-3, lose George Springer in the process
Springer returned to the Astros' lineup last night after missing a few games due to back stiffness, only to injure his hamstring three at-bats later. A. J. Hinch said he wasn't looking forward to the diagnosis and indicated he would probably end up on the IL.
There are already strong rumors this morning that Derek Fisher has been called up from Round Rock, Houston's AAA affiliate. If you recall, Fisher came up for two games that were played down in Monterrey Mexico earlier in the season. He only had one at-bat in that series.
Fansided: Sloppy defense sinks Red Sox in loss to Houston Astros
The Boston Red Sox were their own worst enemy in a 4-3 loss to the Houston Astros. A game they expected to win with ace Chris Sale on the mound went off the rails behind a dismal defensive display.
All four of Houston's runs crossed the plate against Sale yet only two were earned. Boston committed three errors in the game, two of which led directly to runs for the Astros.
A throwing error by first baseman Steve Pearce allowed Aledmys Diaz to score from second base for the first run of game.
Boston.com: Jake Marisnick's bat, glove help Astros top Red Sox 4-3
HOUSTON (AP) -- Thrust into an everyday role because of injuries, Jake Marisnick is making the most of his opportunity with the Houston Astros.
Marisnick homered early off Chris Sale, then made two dazzling defensive plays in center field to help the Astros beat the mistake-prone Boston Red Sox 4-3 on Friday night.
"There's not much not to like (about him) in a game like that," manager AJ Hinch said. "When you're a bench player ... you just want an opportunity. You just want a chance to show it. And he's doing great things on the field.
The Crawfish Boxes: Miley, Super Jake, Shut Down Red Sox. Astros Squeak by Boston 4-3
Wade Miley put a stop to a two game losing skid Friday night at Minute Maid Park as the Houston Astros defeated the Boston Red Sox 4-3. With a little help from his friend Jake Marisnick, who made two amazing superman catches in center field, and, oh yeah, a crucial home run.
Miley cruised through six innings, only allowing four hits and striking out eight Boston bats. Houston needed Miley's dominance because, despite getting four runs across, the Astros could only piece together four hits over the course of the game. Nonetheless, those four hits left Chris Sale the loser, who has won only one game this year, against six losses.
