Los Angeles Angels Fantasy Spin
Mike Trout went 1-for-4 with a walk and two RBI in a loss to the Royals on Saturday. Trout drove in his first run on his RBI double in the first, and and the second run batted in came on a bases-loaded walk. He has a .495 on-base percentage and .590 slugging percentage. He's great.
Kansas City Royals Fantasy Spin
Adalberto Mondesi went 3-for-5 with two runs scored on Saturday against the Angels. Mondesi picked up an RBI with his single in the third, and he scored both of his runs on two-run triples by Hunter Dozier. Mondesi was a star in the second half of last year, and while it's been just one month, the 23-year-old has carried it over with a .290/.310/.505 average along with three homers and seven steals over 26 games.
MLB Betting Trends
The Angels are 3-10 in their last 13 games overall.
The Royals have dropped six of eight overall.
The Royals don’t have the most potent offense but they do have four lefties that they can throw at Harvey, who has struggled getting left-handed batters out. He also isn’t missing many bats and his strikeout rate is down to 14.3%. Bailey, meanwhile, has been more good than bad this year but he also is coming off a disastrous four-run, one-inning start. The over is 5-2 in the Royals’ last seven games, is 20-8-3 in their last 21 home games and is 4-1 in the Angels’ last five contests.
The Pick: Angels/Royals OVER 9
