MLB Odds: Astros Visit Angels in AL West Showdown

The Houston Astros bring their 45-26 road record to Angel Stadium to take on the Los Angeles Angels in a battle between AL West Rivals this Wednesday. In the second game of a three-game set, the Astros will send right-handed pitcher Lance McCullers Jr. to the mound. In 20 starts this season, McCullers has put together a respectable 7-3 record with a 3.97 ERA, 122 strikeouts and 1.27 WHIP over 111.0 innings pitched. McCullers has made one start since coming off of the disabled list on September 6 against the Seattle Mariners, where he gave up three runs and four hits over 5 1/3 innings. With less than 20 games to go in the regular season, the Astros are +550 to win the World Series.

The Angels counter on Wednesday with lefty Tyler Skaggs. Skaggs has had a mediocre 2017 season for the Angels; he owns a 1-5 record with a 4.86 ERA and 1.43 WHIP over 63.0 innings pitched. He’ll be in tough against a Houston club that leads the Majors in runs scored (788) and OPS (.828) this season. The Angels are in a battle for the final AL Wildcard spot and are one game back of the Minnesota Twins for the coveted position. Catch the action at 10:07 PM ET on FSW.

MLB Odds: Angels and Astros Gear Up for Playoffs

Every game counts for the Los Angeles Angels (73-70) as they make a push for the final AL Wildcard spot. Currently, LA sites one game out of the last playoff position in the AL, so every one of their final 19 games will be critical. They’ll face the Houston Astros (86-57) this Wednesday in the second game of a three-game set at Angels Stadium.

After making several significant acquisitions at the August 31 trade deadline, the Astros won six straight games, but have since lost their last four games in a sweep to the Oakland Athletics. The stretch drive will be important for both of these clubs, so expect the series to be intense and filled with excitement.
