Prediction

The Angels have found a little bit if success lately but were stopped by McCullers who held them to only 2 runs for 7 innings. Shohei Ohtani will take the mound for Los Angeles who has been solid this season and absolutely dominated the Astros the last week pitching 8 scoreless innings. Jose Urquidy will start for the Astros who has been very effective this season and also dominated the Angels the last time. With the under cashing big time for these teams and this pitching matchup the under is definitely the best way to go.

PICK: Under 7 (-110)
