Houston & Los Angeles Angels under 9
The Houston Astros host the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on Friday in game one of a three-game set. Houston is coming off a 4-3 win over St. Louis, while Los Angeles beat Detroit in extra innings on Thursday, 3-1.
Bud Norris gets the nod for the Astros in this one. Norris is one of only a few bright spots for the Astros this season, and while he may no longer be with the team after the trade deadline, he’s pitching well for the team now.
Norris has been lights out for the Astros at home over the last two seasons, posting a 2.13 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP.
This will be Norris’s fourth start of the season against the Angels, and he’s been dominant against them this season. Norris has faced the Angels three times this season, posting a 0.43 ERA with a 1.05 WHIP and a .219 BAA.
The under is 6-1 in Norris’s last seven home starts.
Jerome Williams counters for the Angels. He has been flown under the radar this season, but his 3.36 ERA and 1.18 WHIP are both very impressive. Williams allowed only three hits and two runs over seven innings of work in his lone start versus Houston this season.
The under is 5-1 in Williams’s last six road starts. Take the UNDER.
Good Luck, Razor Ray
