Stephen Nover's MLB Underdog Big Ticket
(MLB) LA Angels vs. Houston, 06/02/2023 8:10 PM, Score: 2 - 6
Money Line: 114.00 LA Angels (Away)
Result: Loss
I don't like to go against the Astros. But I'll do it when I can get a plus price on Shohei Ohtani. 

Ohtani is having another MVP-caliber season. He's 5-1 with a 2.91 ERA. He leads the majors in opponent batting average at .155, ranks No. 2 in WHIP at 0.95 and has the fourth-most strikeouts. 

The Angels are in a frustrating, mad mood after losing to the Astros, 5-2, yesterday. They stranded 13 runners and got hosed by the umpires on certain calls. 

Lefty Framber Valdez will be on the hill for Houston. He's good, but his statistics are padded because of his last three starts. Those starts came against the A's twice and Cubs. The Angels rank in the top-seven against southpaws in batting average, slugging percentage and on-base percentage.
