Los Angeles Angels
A good one to pad your bank roll before the college and pro football games coming up this weekend is with a wager on the Angels at +285. Of course, LAA will have to get a win for that to cash out and they’ll have to do it vs. Zack Greinke of the Astros.
It’s safe to say that LAA has shut things down for the year, losing 8 of their last 10 including a 1-9 defeat vs. the Yankees on Thursday. The Angels look like they’ll finish the season over 30 games off the pace in the West.
Los Angeles is also 33-44 on the road this season and comes to Houston after a 3-game visit to Yankee Stadium. The Angels scored a total of 3 runs over those three contests with the Yankees and don’t look to add to that total much vs. Greinke.
The Angels may have had a chance in this one but they are a depleted squad that has shut down Mike Trout, Shohei Ohtani, and Justin Upton for the season.
The Angels have been held to 2 runs or less in 6 of the last 10 which makes Friday’s ‘under’ of 9 look like a solid play, especially against Greinke.
The Angels also made a late decision on their starter in this one, going with Jaime Barria. The right-hander has a 7.93 ERA on the road this season in 8 starts (11 appearances).
The Astros have become a very high risk, low reward team to bet on as the 2019 season winds down. Houston will very likely win on Friday, but as -250 favorites is it even worth the wager?
The good thing for Houston backers is that the team still has something to play for despite being up already clinching a playoff berth and being up 8 games on Oakland in the West.
The reason the Astros still want to win is because they come into Friday’s game with 100 wins, the same amount as the Yankees. Those two teams are likely combatants once the postseason starts and home field would be huge in that series.
Another reason the Astros are a solid wager choice on Friday is because Greinke takes the hill. He has gone 6-1 with a 3.10 ERA in 8 starts with Houston and has allowed just 1 ER total in his last two starts.

Free Los Angeles Angels vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction:
Even betting Houston on the run line doesn’t offer a whole lot of ROI in this wager. The most value is with a low scoring game behind Greinke and hope that the Astros don’t push the ‘over’ all by themselves.

Greinke gears up this time of year – and all the times of the year.
