LA Dodgers at Houston Astros MLB Odds Preview and Game InformationDate/Time: August 21, 8:10 pm ET Venue: Minute Maid Park, Houston, Texas TV: ROOT SPORTS, MLBN Radio: KBME 790 Opening Lines: Dodgers +110, Astros -120 Brett Anderson (7-7, 3.48 ERA) will start for the Dodgers. Anderson has gone unbeaten (3-0) in his last 4 road starts. The Astros (66-55) are even worse on the road than the Dodgers, and they once again put that on display with an awful 2-7 effort on their last trip. They have settled right back in at home taking 2 of 3 from the Tigers and the Rays. They will have a chance to win the series against Tampa Bay on Thursday night, which might also help them extend their 2-game lead atop the division. That lead is starting to look a little bit fragile, especially with the Texas Rangers looking as though they are putting things together for the stretch run. Like the Dodgers, Houston is going to have to find a way to start winning on the road if they want to hold on to their lead. Mike Fiers (5-9, 3.87 ERA) is still looking for his first win since coming over from the Brewers.
