The Houston Astros look to continue their hot start to the season this Tuesday when they lock horns with the equally exciting LA Angels at Angel stadium in Anaheim.
They were 4 wins against the Athletics who are not likely to be very good this year, but it was a great opening week statement to say the least, as this franchise looks to build back some credibility in the eyes of fans.
Their star third basemen Alex Bregman has starting the season hot hitting .500 to go along with two home runs and this is no surprise to most baseball fans, as plenty of fans and media pinned him as a guy to watch to have a monster season.
Zack Greinke did not look like he missed a beat in his first start of the year throwing 6 scoreless innings and striking out 4 to go along with just 3 hits allowed. Greinke will need to be on top of his game here though, as the Angels will present a much different challenge in terms of batting then the Athletics did.
Los Angeles Angels
The first place we should start with in terms of the Angels is Shohei Ohtani, who, when healthy, is one of the most exciting players in baseball with his ability to both pitch at an ace level while being a very respectable DH.
We saw his skills out on full display during his first start of the year, as he was able to clock a fastball at 101 mph, as well as hit a home run that went 451 feet which was the longest home run of the season to that point.
It is not really known if he will DH in this spot though, as Ohtani went off limping after that first game, but Joe Maddon says he thinks he will be back for this game, so watch out for the news prior to first pitch.
Griffin Canning gets the start here for LA and although he was primarily a bullpen guy he did get 11 starts during the 2020 season and was able to keep his ERA under 4 which is quite respectable.

Free Houston Astros vs. Los Angeles Angels MLB Prediction:
The Astros look absolutely stacked this year, as even their young guys I like with Yordan Alvarez being a guy I think is primed for a huge season. They also have a ton of great veterans who can get to Griffin Canning early and often and I would not be surprised if we see plenty of the Angels bullpen in this contest.
There is also a big time discrepancy between the two guys on the mound, as I fully expect Greinke to continue on off of his great start to the season here in this game. Given that discrepancy I do think the -115 is a great price on the Astros even though I do understand that Houston is historically way better at home then on the road.
