The Houston Astros are getting ready to face the Los Angeles Angels in a three-game series. It will be played on Houston's home turf as Game 1 starts on Friday evening. As we draw closer to the end, the season is in its final run of games.

This battle is between the best and not-so-best teams in the American League West division. The Astros lead the charts on all fronts in the division, claiming their superiority. Their outstanding (88-49) record keeps them miles away from the remaining teams. A brilliant home (45-21) and away (43-28) season is the recipe for their success. Furthermore, a 7-3 run in the last 10 adds immense volume as well.

"Winners win" - Astros

The Los Angeles Angels have left it too late to have a chance at the playoffs. Although they just had a decent run and are coming off a series win against the Detroit Tigers, it is not enough. However, they are providing a full dose of entertainment to the fans. After a rough season, fans can expect a bare minimum. Los Angeles, after all, could be that source.

FINAL: Angels 4, Tigers 5

Just a little bit of high octane drama would be enough to entice everybody. Expect the three-game series to be a blast.

Houston Astros vs. Los Angeles Angels: Pick

Lance McCullers Jr. gets ready to pitch for the Astros in Game 1. The 2017 All-Star has played only four games this season but has been super impressive. Lance was sidelined for almost a year, suffering from a stained flexor tendon. His comeback has been excellent so far, which is great news for the team. Watch him be a threat to the Angels Friday evening. A definite pick.
