Los Angeles Angels
Barria was mediocre in his last outing but he got the no-decision in a 4-3 victory over the Seattle Mariners.
He went five innings giving up six hits, three earned runs, and one home run while he struck out three and walked one.
In 119.2 innings of work this season, Barria owns a weak 6.84 K/9, a solid 2.86 BB/9, a slightly high 1.28 HR/9, and an excellent 80.9% LOB%. The end-result is a solid 3.61 ERA and a 4.56 FIP.
In 170.0 innings of work this season, Heaney owns a decent 8.74 K/9, a solid 2.17 BB/9, a slightly high 1.22 HR/9, and a low 71.1% LOB%.
The end-result is a decent 3.97 ERA and a slightly lower 3.83 FIP.
Los Angeles has played sub-par baseball in the past week winning two of their six contests.
During that span their lineup is slashing .201/.255/.407 to go with 19 extra-base hits and 20 RBI.
Verlander just pitched another gem in his last outing picking up his 16th win of the season in a 5-4 win over the Arizona Cardinals.
He went seven innings giving up three hits and one solo home run while he struck out 11 and walked one.
In 202.0 innings of work this season, Verlander owns an elite 11.99 K/9, an elite 1.60 BB/9, a slightly high 1.25 HR/9, and an elite 84.7% LOB%.
The end-result is an elite 2.67 ERA to go with a 2.93 FIP.
The end-result is an excellent 2.88 ERA to go with an even better 2.75 FIP.
Houston has played mediocre baseball in the past week winning three of their six contests.
During that span their lineup is slashing .235/.338/.332 to go with 12 extra-base hits and 21 RBI.

Houston edges out Los Angeles at home.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Angels UNDER Team Total
Verlander is about to face a hurting Los Angeles lineup and that means little scoring opportunities for a bleak lineup.
Run line isn’t appealing, but I expect Verlander to hold Los Angeles to score less than their team total threshold.
