Angels vs. Astros MLB Computer Pick: Houston’s Lefties Target Detmers

Today’s slate in the MLB features many games with quality pitching across the board. Therefore, we asked our computers to help us find some bets at the top sportsbooks, for the later portion of the slate. Here’s one bet that the AI Model loves tonight.

Our AI Model believes the Astros will add a 5-3.4 win over the Angels in tonight’s showdown. The Astros began the season really poorly but are starting to approach .500 territory.

MLB Pick: Astros -1.5 (+105) at Bet365


Los Angeles Angels vs. Houston Astros

Monday, May 20, 2024 – 08:10 PM ET at Minute Maid Park


Reid Detmers’ Reversed Stats

The Angels will give Reid Detmers another opportunity on the mound. Detmers has been great against righties to begin the season, but he’s also allowed a .255 ISO and wOBA of .350 to lefties as a left-handed pitcher.

The Astros have two left-handed threats in the lineup that hit lefties well, including Kyle Tucker and Yordan Alvarez. Those two should set the tone against Detmers tonight.

Houston’s Lefty Is Better

Meanwhile, the Astros will send out their lefty in Framber Valdez. His stats aren’t reversed. Instead, he’s held teams to a .099 ISO and wOBA of .303 with 68.3% of ground balls and just 7.9% of fly balls allowed.

The Angels’ projected lineup has some power, but it’ll be hard to show off power with the balls hitting the dirt in the in field.

MLB Computer Pick

We’ll side with the AI Model and back the Astros on the run line at +105 MLB odds.
