The Houston Astros will host the Los Angeles Angels in an American League West matchup on Monday. The Astros are second in the division with an 18-16 record, while the Angels are last at 15-18. Both teams can light it up at the plate, so this matchup could be interesting. Let’s go over some of the best betting options at DraftKings Sportsbook.
Moneyline pick: Angels +155
The pitching battle in this game will be between Luis Garcia and Alex Cobb. Both starters struggled the last time these two teams met, but Cobb got a little more time to crash and burn. Cobb only managed to last 2 2⁄3 innings and gave up six hits and five runs while walking four batters. Garcia only threw 26 pitches and gave up a solo homer in 1 2⁄3 innings. Houston is leading the season series 4-2 and has outscored Los Angeles 41-21, so I’m rolling with the home team.
Player Prop: Justin Upton UO.5 hits (+122)
Upton has tallied 12 at-bats in his last five games and has only come away with one hit. The 33-year-old veteran is just 3-for-20 in May and six of his 21 hits have been home runs. If he doesn't go yard, he’s typically a bust. That’s why I’m willing to bite on this prop while he’s in a slump.
