Sports handicapper Ian Cameron provides his MLB Early Lines Report for the games taking place on Thursday, August 11.

Houston Astros vs. Minnesota Twins
Doug Fister has been a very reliable and consistent arm in the Houston Astros rotation for weeks now and in this short price range, he's a pitcher worth endorsing. Fister has allowed 3 runs or less in 7 of his last 10 starts and has yielded just a single run in his last two trips to the mound over a span of 12 innings against two very good hitting squads Texas and Toronto. He also has a good track record against Minnesota with his teams notching a 4-1 record in his last 5 starts against the Twins. On the other side of the equation, Jose Berrios is a highly touted pitching prospect but it is clear he is still working on putting things together.

He's been mediocre at best in a pair of starts for Minnesota since rejoining the Twins rotation here in the month of August surrendering 7 runs in 11 innings against Tampa Bay and Cleveland. He's given up 8 runs in 9 innings pitched at Target Field this season and will be facing a Houston lineup that broke out of a major hitting slump in a big way in Tuesday night's game in this series in a 7-5 win and might be showing signs of getting their bats going after struggling at the plate for an extended period of time. Minnesota has been playing much more competitive baseball lately. However, they've been getting much richer plus prices and that lends itself to value the Astros as your MLB pick here who should enjoy a pitching edge. Astros are currently valued at MLB odds of -120 with TheGreek.
