Los Angeles Angels
Skaggs made his way back from the DL after dealing with a groin strain.
He pitched three shutout-innings giving up zero hits while striking out three and walking two in a 9-7 victory over the Oakland Athletics.
In 119.2 innings of work this season, Skaggs owns a solid 9.48 K/9, a solid 2.78 BB/9, a solid 0.90 HR/9, and a decent 74.5% LOB%.
The end-result is a solid 3.69 ERA to go with an even better 3.38 FIP.
Los Angeles has played sub-par baseball in the past week winning just 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.
Morton was able to put in a quality start while picking up his 15th win of the season in a 10-4 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks.
He went six innings giving up three hits, two earned runs, and one home run while he struck out seven and walked none.
In 163.0 innings of work this season, Morton owns an excellent 10.77 K/9, a slightly high 3.48 BB/9, a solid 0.99 HR/9, and an excellent 79.8% LOB%.
The end-result is a solid 3.15 ERA and a higher but still solid 3.65 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.

Free Los Angeles Angels vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction:
Houston edges out Los Angeles at home.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Angels +1.5 & UNDER 8 Runs
Skaggs has been solid all year long and is getting back into form after returning from the DL, and he has fared well against Houston in two starts this season, both games of which stayed under the total.
Morton is coming off of a quality start and will be facing a Los Angeles lineup that hasn’t been able to do much of anything recently.
I expect Skaggs to keep the contest close, while the total remains under the threshold.
