(913) LA Angels vs. Houston (914) 8:10 PM | Thu, Apr 22 2021
Sport: MLB | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Win (1000)
HOU (-123) @ caesars

I'm playing on HOUSTON. The Astros could really use a victory and this should be an excellent spot to get one Javier has an excellent 2.08 ERA and 0.92 WHIP through his first two starts. In his lone home start, he tossed five shutout innings, striking out seven while allowing just three hits. The Astros won 6-2. Javier held the Angels to three runs in a 6-3 Houston win last August. Cobb has a 4.63 ERA through his first two starts. The last time that Cobb visited here (2017) he'd been throwing the ball well, having gone 3-0 with only five runs allowed in his previous four starts. However, he was rocked for nine hits and eight runs in a season-low three innings. The Astros won that game 14-7. At the time, Cobb's manager (Kevin Cash) commented: "Alex just didn't have it. He couldn't quite command the baseball, missing over the plate too much. They came out, and they didn't miss anything either." I say the Astros bounce back. 


What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
We are constantly evaluating online sportsbooks and line feeds to ensure accuracy with our Expert picks. We typically have between 5-10 legal and reputable sportsbooks for our handicappers to select lines from.
