Sportsbooks For Houston Astros

The Houston Astros are one of the most recent additions to the American League’s West Division, following a 51-year stint in the National League. They are also a team who could have gone out of business on numerous occasions, but have managed to survive, sometimes by the skin of their teeth. Frequently the underdogs, The Astros are survivors, and play their home games at Minute Maid Park. But who are The ‘Stros? Coming into formation in 1962 along with the New York Mets, the Houston Astros were the Houston Colts. [+]

They played in the National League for 50 years, but were transferred into the West Division of the American League in 2012. The Astros’ name was adopted in 1965 because of their move to the Astrodome, reflecting Houston being at the centre of the space program. But have Houston ever had a problem? You bet. 

With The Houston Astros moving into their new home of the Astrodome in 1965, the forthcoming voyage to land men on the moon fueled enormous optimism that bled through to the MLB franchise. The often large crowds has since been attributed to fans purely venturing the ball game to see the Astrodome itself. Coined as ‘The Eighth Wonder of the World’, ‘AstroTurf’ was needed as grass could not grow there! Perhaps the worst luck for The Astros happened whne Jimmy Wynn crashed into a fence and broke his knee cap. But in 1967 their luck turned, legendary slugger Eddie Mathews joining the club and hitting his 500th home run.

One of the most famous seasons in the Houston Astros’ history was undoubtedly 2005. Having started the season in bad form, they saw their local newspaper, The Houston Chronicle, write ‘RIP 2005 Astros’ headlines. Undeterred, The Astros roared back into contention with a 42-17 record that saw them eventually win a Wild Card berth on the final day.

After winning the 2005 NLDS against the Atlanta Braves 3-1, The Astros took on St. Louis and beat them in a sixth game to make the World Series. They took on the mighty Chicago White Sox who were marginal favourites. It all went Chicago’s way in the World Series as they won the series 4-0.

Game 3 took 5 hours and 41 minutes, the longest game in World Series history. 2006-10 saw a decline in the Houston Astro’s fortunes. Can The Astros make it back to their former glory years as part of the AL?

How to Make Money on the Houston Astros

The Astros will need to be at their best to improve on recent seasons and push for a playoff berth.

We aren’t sure that they can make it that far but they’ll be a great team to watch, especially at the Astrodome, where the atmosphere alone is a match for anyone!

Taking the over 7.5 line is where the value is with such an open team. In the first five games of 2016, they all finished above 7.5 and we don’t think this is a freak occurrence. The Astros will consistently hit the over 7.5 market all season.
