Betting Pick: Los Angeles Angels vs. Houston Astros

Betting Pick: Los Angeles Angels vs. Houston Astros

The Houston Astros wrap things up at home on Sunday in what should be an exciting series finale with the Los Angeles Angels. After taking the series-opening game on Friday, the Angels will be looking to put the finishing touches on the Astros to improve their lead in the AL West standings. Angels starting pitcher Jose Suarez will do his part in helping to stop that from happening when he takes the mound opposite of Houston’s Jose Urquidy.

The Angels are in a peculiar position in the AL West Division, where they are seemingly detached from every other team. There’s the last place Seattle Mariners that are 10 games behind from even competing, and then there are the Rangers and Oakland Athletics, two talented teams desperately fighting for either second place or a shot at dethroning the Astros. The Angels are sandwiched in between both of those situations right now with a 45-44 record. Few expected the Angels to waltz right into Minute Maid Park and take the first game against the Astros, but that’s exactly what happened on Friday night. The defense came up small in the game, and the offense failed to generate enough hits at the plate to score runs when it mattered. Such has been the case for the Astros periodically, even while they were streaking.

Why Choose TGF?

The art of sports betting is not something that is taught or learned overnight. Like most hobbies, it takes time and effort to pick winning spreads and keep momentum. Many novice sports bettors choose to bet with their hearts instead of their minds. Sports betting is about statistical information, the type of knowledge that only comes through following teams, players and game results.
