Both sharp and expert bettors loaded up on Houston last night and were rewarded with a sweat-free 8-2 Astros victory over the Los Angeles Angels.

Earl Weaver once said that, “momentum is only as good as tomorrow’s starting pitcher.”

So, how are the market’s smartest bettors approaching tonight’s Angels vs. Astros matchup?

Is the value once again with Houston as a favorite? Or is the +121 price with Los Angeles an overreaction to Thursday night’s result.

Thankfully, our MLB PRO Report has the very clear answer.

Angels vs. Astros Pick

Sharp Action

Houston opened as a -128 favorite for Friday’s game against Los Angeles, and professional action has hit the Astros in three separate instances.

With wiseguy money flowing on the home favorites, oddsmakers have had no choice but to push this moneyline to a consensus of -135 (click here for updated MLB odds), and even further at other sportsbooks, like -146 at FanDuel.

Big Money

The Astros are already attracting the majority of overall moneyline bets — 60% of tickets have landed on Houston — and are receiving an even more lopsided 87% of the actual dollars wagered.

Based on this data, it’s reasonable to conclude that Houston is both the public and sharp side of tonight’s matchup.
