The Houston Astros and the Los Angeles Angels will close their divisional series in Anaheim this Wednesday from Angel Stadium. Houston took game two in a low-scoring battle, 3-1.
Astros Betting Preview
Houston enters at 18-18 after defeating LAA last night. The Astros snapped a three-game skid with the victory, and they’ll look to win their first series in four tries. The Houston offense is scoring 4.66 runs per game, while batting .254, with a .330 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 3.32 ERA, with a 1.23 WHIP. Yordan Alvarez has produced a run in four of the last five games, and he’s among AL leaders with 33 RBI. Mauricio Dubon has stepped up in the absence of Jose Altuve to lead the team in BA (.287) and hits (37).
Cristian Javier (2-1, 3.54 ERA, 43 Ks) will take the mound for Houston. The fourth-year pitcher bounced back from his first loss of the season with a strong effort in Seattle, striking out eight in seven innings of work. Javier was great against the Angels last season, and he’s got 21 strikeouts in three road starts this year.
Angels Betting Preview
Los Angeles moved to 20-17 after falling to Houston. The Angels failed to capitalize on a strong start from Shohei Ohtani, and they’ll look to avoid dropping their fourth out of five here. The LAA offense is scoring 5.63 runs per game, while batting .252, with a .331 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 3.87 ERA, with a 1.27 WHIP. Mike Trout has a hit in six of the last seven games, and he leads LAA in runs (25), while batting .287. Ohtani leads the Halos in hits (40) and BA (.294), with 22 RBI. Hunter Renfroe holds the team-lead in RBI (24), after producing runs in two of the last three games.
Griffin Canning (2-0, 5.31 ERA, 18 Ks) will get the ball for LAA. The fourth-year pitcher earned his second straight victory despite giving up five runs in St. Louis last week, and he’ll look to clean that up here at home. Canning struck out seven in five full innings in his last home start, but that was against Oakland, and Houston will represent a stiff task.
Houston vs Anaheim Trends
Houston is 12-23 against the spread this season, with a 15-19-1 O/U record. LAA is 19-15 ATS this year, with a 18-14-1 over/under record.
Corey's Free Pick
This rubber match in the AL West feels like a spot where the defending World Series champs should be able to flex their muscles. The Houston lineup should have their way with Griffin Canning, and be able to provide the proper run support for their ace. Cristian Javier is one of the most trustworthy arms in the league, and although he’ll be facing off with a dynamic duo in Anaheim, I like him holding his own and getting the Astros back into the win column. Back Houston in anticipation of a strong two-way effort for game three.
