Astros are Cashing at Home With Ease

After making a surprising surge in the second half of the season, the Los Angeles Angels are falling out of contention for the second AL wild-card spot. The Halos will look to snap a five-game losing streak when they pay a visit to the AL West champion Houston Astros on Saturday.

MyBookie opened the Halos as +149 road underdogs with a total of 9.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Astros are 7-1 SU in their last eight games.
  • The UNDER is 5-0 in the Astros' last 5 home games.
  • The Angels are 1-4 SU in the last 5 meetings.

Bud Norris and Charlie Morton will be given the start. Norris (2-5, 4.53 ERA) is set to make his second start of the campaign and is coming off a rough relief outing against Cleveland on Tuesday in which he gave up three runs, three hits and two walks in two-thirds of an inning. The hurler is making his second career start against his former team.

Morton (12-7, 3.75) topped Seattle in his last turn as he gave up one run and five hits over six innings of work. The 33-year-old has allowed opposing batters to hit just .220 in 15 home starts this year while going 9-3 with a 3.50 ERA in that span.

The Astros have been lights out in front of their hometown fans of late. In Houston’s previous 11 home tilts, the ‘Stros are 10-1 SU.
