Houston Astros vs Los Angeles Angels 5/9/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The Houston Astros will go against the Los Angeles Angels in MLB action in Angel Stadium of Anaheim, CA, on Monday, May 8, 2023, at 9:38 PM ET.


Houston lost two out of three games while traveling to Seattle over the weekend, and they were blanked in the last contest on Sunday.


The Astros were 17-17 overall as of Monday’s play and were tied for third place in the AL West, 3.5 games behind the Rangers for first place.


Houston recorded six hits on Sunday, with Yordan Alvarez being the lone player with two. In the eighth inning, Kyle Tucker singled in Jose Abreu to score the lone run for the Astros.


In his first start of the year, Brandon Bielak (0-1) lost due to a dearth of offensive output. In 4.2 innings of work, he gave up three runs (two of them earned), ten hits, two walks, and no strikeouts.


As he makes his eighth start of the year for the Astros, pitcher Framber Valdez is hoping for better luck. In 45 innings of work, he has a 2-4 record, a 2.60 ERA, a 1.156 WHIP, 10 walks, and 45 strikeouts.


In his previous start against the Giants on Wednesday at home, Valdez was unsuccessful. He pitched six innings in a game that the Astros lost 4-2, allowing two runs on five hits, two walks, and eight strikeouts.


  • The total went UNDER in 8 of Houston’s last 12 matches.
  • The Houston Astros are 1-5 SU in their last 6 matches.
  • The Astros are 9-4 SU in their last 13 games with the LA Angels.

Houston Astros vs Los Angeles Angels Predictions 5/9/2023


Los Angeles took the first game of their series against the Rangers, but they were destroyed over the weekend, losing the series after allowing 26 runs in the following two games.


The Angels had a record of 19-16 as of Monday and were two games behind the Rangers for first place in the AL West.


On Sunday, Los Angeles’ 13-hit offense was led by three hits apiece from Matt Thaiss (run) and Gio Urshela (run), but it wasn’t enough.


In the defeat, Hunter Renfroe hit his seventh home run and Anthony Rendon hit his first. In 2.2 innings of work, Jose Suarez (1-2) suffered the defeat after allowing seven runs on six hits, three walks, and three strikeouts.


In this game, Angels pitcher Shohei Ohtani will take the mound for the ninth time this year. He has a 4-0 record, an AL-best 2.54 ERA, a 0.872 WHIP, 18 walks, and 59 strikeouts.


He also has the most wild pitches (seven) and hit batters (seven) in the majors this season. Ohtani’s most recent start, on Wednesday against the Cardinals on the road, didn’t affect the decision. 


  • The total went OVER in 5 of the LA Angels’ last 6 matches.
  • The LA Angels are 6-2 SU in their last 8 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 4 of the LA Angels’ last 5 matches at home.

Houston Astros vs Los Angeles Angels. The MLB pick for this game is the Los Angeles Angels. With Valdez and Ohtani toeing the rubber against one another, this is a fantastic pitching battle.


Although Houston is a hurt club, they have a chance to get some bats back in the lineup since Michael Brantley and Chas McCormick could be able to play in this series again.


Due to the long-term absences of Jose Urquidy and Luis Garcia, as well as the fact that Lance McCullers Jr. is yet to make his season debut on the mound, the Astros must make the most of Valdez’s contributions.


In addition to Ohtani’s outstanding pitching performance, the Angels’ offense was especially strong at home. Give the hosts the advantage in this game, which should be close.


The Los Angeles Angels will win to a predicted score of 7-4.
