The Astros take on the Angels at Angel stadium in this afternoon affair.
The Astros have been red hot, they’ve won 8 of their last 9 games.
The Angels are ice cold as they’ve lost 7 of their last 8 games.
Taking the mound for Houston is Keuchel who is 4-9 with a 5.35 era.
Taking the mound for the Angels is Weaver, who is 6-6 with a 5.24 era.
The Astros are red hot and took the series opener against the Angels 4-2.
During their last 9 games, they’ve scored 58 runs. That’s well above their season average of 4.4 runs per game.
This team has been expected to hit well all season and they look like they’ve really found their scoring touch.
They don’t typically for a good average as they are just hitting .244 as a team this season but they’ve hit 97 long balls which is 9th best in the league.
Keuchel has underperformed all season, his era is 5.35 which is well above the teams average runs against of 4.3.
He’s had the occasional strong outing, 1 in every 4 starts it seems and he’s given up 5 just once in his last 6 starts.
Otherwise, he’s given up 4 twice and 2 twice.
Overall, he’s been unreliable.
The Angels in their current skid have scored 24 runs in their last 7 games. That is an average of just over 3 per game.
As they try to find the win column again, they continue to slide down in the standings and it doesn’t look like they are going to turn things around.
Against Keuchel, they may have a chance to generate more runs than they have as of late because of his inconsistency.
Weaver has been almost as bad as Keuchel, with his 5.24 era.
In his last outing, he gave up 4 over 4.2 innings but the start prior to that he pitched a 9 inning shutout.
The 2 starts prior to the shutout, he gave up 6 in each of the 2 starts, so it’ll be a surprise as to which Weaver shows up in this ball game because he’s been wildly consistent and is capable of pitching a gem.

Free Houston Astros vs. LA Angels MLB Prediction:
I’d like to say the pitching matchup is fairly even but it really depends on which Weaver shows up, he has the ability to shut his opponents down.
The last time he faced Houston, he gave up 4 over 6 so based on that I’m going to say Houston gets through to him.
The offense favours the Astros heavily, but Keuchel has been horrible and the Angels still hit well for average. Keuchel gave up just 2 over 7 innings against the Angels the last time they met.
This one will likely stay close but the Astros should pull out on top.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Astros ML
Instinctively this one feels like it’ll be high scoring but the last time this matchup occurred a month ago, the score was just 4-2.
However, the Astros are really rolling right now so I think this one will be much higher scoring than the last time.
