Angels snap losing streak
The Angels ended their four-game losing streak on Monday night with a 3-2 win over the Orioles at home. Los Angeles is just 6-10 at home this season despite being 17-12 overall. The Angels are putting up 4.59 runs per contest this season while allowing 4.41 per game.
Andrew Heaney will take the mound for the Angels today. He has started in three games and has an 0-1 record with a 6.91 ERA and 1.53 WHIP. Over 14.1 innings of work this year, Heaney has 22 strikeouts with just four walks.
Orioles with momentum?
The Orioles were unable to win their third game in four tries on Monday in the 3-2 loss to the Angels. Baltimore has won back-to-back games just once this year. They are now 8-21 overall and 3-11 on the road. Baltimore is averaging just 3.45 runs per game on offense while allowing 5.34 per game on defense.
Dylan Bundy gets the start for the Orioles tonight. He has been one of the Orioles’ best pitchers. Bundy has started six games and is 1-3 with a 2.97 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP. He has pitched in 36.1 innings and has 44 strikeouts with 10 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Orioles have lost four of Bundy’s last five starts. However, they have won seven of his last eight starts against AL West opponents.
The Angels have dropped eight of their last 10 at home and six of their last seven against AL East opponents. However, they have won five of Heaney’s last seven home starts against a team with a losing record.
The Angels didn’t light up the scoreboard on Monday and they send a pitcher to the mound that has been struggling. Bundy has been a bright spot for Baltimore pitching. I think the Orioles will see a boost in hitting tonight while Bundy should be able to keep them in the game. Because of that, I will take my chances on the underdog.
The Pick: Baltimore Orioles +130
