3-unit Play Take #924 Houston Astros (+1.5 RL) over Los Angeles Angels (8:10pm EST) Once again we look to back the underrated Houston Astros at a nice underdog price. Today they send their top pitcher Collin McHugh to the hill against a dangerous Angel's lineup. McHugh has been nothing short of spectacular in 2014 with a 2.99 ERA and 1.12 WHIP in 21 starts. Yet he doesn't get talked about amongst the better pitchers in the AL because he pitches for a losing team. That will change sooner rather than later as the Astros are quickly improving. Since the beginning of May, Houston is 49-53 and has made great strides developing some of their youngsters. However, they are still being priced like one of the worst teams in baseball and today is a great example. Yes they are playing against the Angels tonight, but the Astros have the superior pitcher and are playing at home. The Angels go with a struggling Jered Weaver tonight and I have a feeling his results won't be much better than teammate's C.J. Wilson's effort on Tuesday. Wilson has also been struggling and he couldn't get past the fourth inning. Weaver is having one of the worst seasons of his career and he doesn't look as confident on the mound as he used to. Houston has now won nine of 15 and is one of the hotter teams around. Maybe they'll finally start getting some respect once they win this series against the Halos, but for now we'll continue firing away with Houston selections. Take the Astros here.
