The Houston Astros and Los Angeles Angels face off on Wednesday in an MLB showdown at Angel Stadium. In the first game of this series, it was the Astros that came away with the 6-5 victory. 

The Astros come into this game with a 57-29 record overall and they have won two games in a row. The Astros strength all season has been the pitching and they are giving up 3.32 runs per game which is third in the league. The top offensive player so far this season for the Astros has been Yordan Alvarez and he has hit 26 home runs and driven in 60 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Angels who sit with a 38-50 record and on Tuesday they made a comeback but it wasn’t enough as they were defeated by a run. The Angels offense has some star power, but they are very top-heavy and they need some of the other guys to step up. The Angels are averaging 3.99 runs per game which is the 25th best in the league. Shohei Ohtani has been the top offensive player hitting 19 home runs and driving in 54 RBIs.

The Angels are 5-0 in Ohtani’s last five starts. The Angels are 1-4 in Ohtani’s last five home starts against a team with a winning record. The under is 5-0-1 in Ohtani’s last six starts overall. The over is 5-0 in the Astros last five games against a right-handed starter. 

The Angels have won the last five starts by Ohtani and it’s going to be the case again in this game.

The Astros offense has been a bit inconsistent this season, and the Angels will win this game on the run line.
