Astros vs. Angels, 9:38 p.m. ET on Apple TV+

Run line: Astros +1.5 (-170), Angels -1.5 (+150)
Total: O/U 9
Moneyline odds: Angels -120, Astros +100

ML pick: Astros +100

Yes, the Astros lost Carlos Correa during the offseason. But they still have a stacked lineup, with Altuve, a healthy Bregman, Kyle Tucker, Yordan Alvarez, Michael Brantley and more. They should do plenty of damage against Angels lefty Patrick Sandoval in a win. With Jake Odorizzi slated to take the mound for Houston, this has the feel of a high-scoring game.

Player prop: Jose Altuve over 1.5 hits (+195)

Altuve went 0-3 in the opener against the Angels and he’s historically struggled against this club. The star hit .242 against LA last season in 62 plate appearances but he’s due for a decent game here after being blanked in the opener. Look for Altuve to snag at least a couple hits in this game.
