Pick on the Moneyline of Astros-Angels for Wednesday

VSiN’s Greg Peterson goes over the best betting options for Wednesday’s matchup between the Houston Astros and Los Angeles Angels.

MLB: Houston Astros at Los Angeles Angels Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

The Houston Astros are looking to prolong the misery of Los Angeles Angels, who are 14-37 stretch in their last 51 games after a 24-13 start to the season.

Houston Astros vs. Los Angeles Angels (-130, 7.5)

The Angels send their ace Shohei Ohtani to the mound. He has allowed one unearned run in his last four starts. Overall this season, he has a 2.44 ERA with 12.3 strikeouts per nine innings.

While Ohtani has been terrific, the bullpen behind him entered the series 20th in bullpen ERA, while the Astros lead the league in bullpen ERA.

Astros starter Cristian Javier his been one of the best pitchers in the league at limiting contact, getting 12.3 strikeouts per nine innings with opponents hitting .177 off of him. He’s also allowed two runs or fewer in 13 of his 16 pitching appearances this season.

The injury to Yordan Alvarez hurts the Astros lineup, but the team still has four players with at least 11 home runs. They are making the most of their at-bats, ranked third in the league in fewest strikeouts per game.

With the Angels 25th in the league in on-base percentage and the lineup leading the league in streak outs per game, it will be another loss for a struggling Angels bunch.

The Play: Astros +115
