The Houston Astros will face off against the Los Angeles Angels in the final game of their three-game series. The match will be at Minute Maid Park on Sunday afternoon at 1:10 p.m. ET. The best odds, lines, and picks for the game are here.
The Angels defeated the Astros in the second game courtesy of a Mike Trout bomb and a good outing by Shohei Ohtani on the mound. The Angels do not possess any chances of making it to the playoffs but are fighting for pride and a good end to the regular season. It will be a difficult task for the visitors to clinch the series today, but they will be optimistic.
The Astros currently sit at the top of the American League West standings and are in cruise control as they look towards the postseason. They have a chance to become the second team (after the Los Angeles Dodgers) to claim 90 wins this season. After last night's defeat, they will look to bounce back in their regular fashion by intimidating their opponents and bringing their A-game to the field.
