The Houston Astros have owned the Los Angeles Angels in the first two games of their three-game series, beating them by a combined score of 17-2.

The two teams will wrap the series up this afternoon, when the Angels send out Jose Suarez (4.36 ERA) to take on Framber Valdez (2.65 ERA) of the Astros.

Angels vs. Astros Prediction and Pick

You can't convince me to bet on the Angels at this point in time. Not only were they destroyed by the Astros in their last two games, but now they have to face Houston's ace in Framber Valdez. On top of that, the Angels bats haven't been good in over a month now, ranking 29th in OPS in the Majors since the start of June.

The Astros, on the other hand, are third in OPS in that stretch and are looking like they're gearing up for another run at the World Series.

Things get even more bleak for the Angels when you look at how each team has performed against lefties since the start of last month. The Astros are second in the Majors in OPS vs. left-handed pitchers since June 1st, and Los Angeles is dead last.

I'd be shocked if Houston doesn't win this game with ease.

Pick: Astros -1.5 (-115)
