Houston Astros vs Los Angeles Angels Game 1 Predictions 9/5/2020

Houston will look to bounce back after their loss in game 1. The Astros are doing well with 4 wins in their last 6 games while making 15 runs in their last 3 matchups. They actually did a better batting game than L.A in game 1, outhitting the Angels 13-7, but could not produce enough runs to win the game. The game was all tied up after 10 innings, but the squad allowed 1 run in the 11th inning and gave the Angels the win. Kyle Tucker had a good game going 2 for 5 and 2 RBIs, while Carlos Correa got 2 hits and 1 RBI. Brooks Raley got the loss pitching 1.1 scoreless innings. Yuli Gurriel has 36 hits this season, while Kyle Tucker has 30 RBIs and 6 home runs. Houston has the 9th best bullpen this season with a team ERA of 4.09, while they are batting at .250 average which is 15th in the league and they are 7th with most runs scored at 196. The Houston Astros is 6th in the American League with a 21-16 record and is 2nd in the AL West Division. Brandon Bielak will start for the Astros in the 1st game of the day.

Houston Astros vs Los Angeles Angels. MLB’s pick for the 1st game of the doubleheader will be the Houston Astros -150. Bielak had a good start 3 games ago, where he allowed 1 earned run in 6 innings. It wasn’t the same in his last 2 starts where he allowed 10 earned runs in just 1.3 innings. Canning did great in his last start allowing only 1 earned run in 8 innings. Houston still has a better chance of winning this game since they are the better team overall, while the Angels are struggling this season. The Angels can’t be trusted with consistency which is why they are unlikely to get this 3rd straight win. The Astros know the Angels very well since they have a 14-5 record in their last 19 games against the Halos. Predicted to win us Houston at 6-2.
