Astros Downright Awful Runline Bet On Road

The Houston Astros have not been killing the game like they once were this season but they have been flat-out putrid for runline bettors. The ’Stros are 1-13 against the runline in their past 14 away from Minute Maid Park. The Astros will look to win their three-game series with the Los Angeles Angels in La La Land on Sunday.

Shark Bites
  • The Angels are 11-5 ATS in their past 16 games.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 7 of the Astros’ past 9 games.
  • The Astros are 3-9 SU in their past 12 road games.

The Astros will turn to the ever-reliable Charlie Morton on the bump in this one. Since the beginning of July, Morton has a 3.56 ERA while holding opponents to a .196 batting average. The Angels bats could not solve Morton earlier in the season when the righty threw five innings of no-run ball against the Halos.

The Angels will counter with Ricky Nolasco who, though pitching well, has been throwing far too many pitches recently. Nolasco has thrown a combined 213 pitches in his past two starts, which only lasted a combined 10.1 innings. The Angels could afford to give Nolasco an easy outing, as their bullpen has the fifth-best ERA in baseball.
