Astros-Angles takes a look at the fortunes of Houston since mid may. Early start had them stumble to the tune of a 17-28 start. Since then the rebound has been riveting. Only nine losses in their next 31 to get back into playoff contention. Now they get to feast upon an Angels team that needs to have a leadership change in the dugout. Which way will the path of profit point to in this 10PM start on Monday the 27th?
Astros-Angels : ML Topsy Turvy
Angles with Shoemaker on the mound opened up as a very slight home favorite for this one. Number one sign that those new to sports investing should note is to follow the movement of money. Betting on Houston has been sustained enough to now make them the road favorite to the tune of -112. Part of this was that the Astros have monster momentum even after KC snapped their seven game winning streak on Sunday. An additional caveat to this one is that the teams have met six times this year already with the Astros going 5-1 against the team from Anaheim.
Almost Equal Pitching
Shoemaker is not that much lower than Collin McHugh. What the Angels starter has to contend with is Jose Altuve at the plate. Jose has made it to base in just under 30 games straight. He also has done well historically in the Angels stadium. All but one of his last 17 games there has he at least gotten a hit. .388 batting average means that the Houston offense will have a leg up in this one.
Total opened at 8 then dipped to 7 1/2. At this level, the over has become more chalky. Near -115, if one takes the over in the game then it should be done right now before it goes back to 8. Meanwhile, Houston has most of the momentum and intangibles for this one. Altuve stokes the offense each and every night. Take the Houston ML at -112 and for those that like some risk, the runline at +150 on the Astros is worth your while. Good fortune and we will see you later on today here at HRWager.
