MLB Betting Trends
The Angels have won seven of their last eight against AL West opponents and they have won four of their last five after a win. They also have won Skaggs’ last four road starts.
The Mariners have won seven of their last 10 overall, but are just 2-5 in their last seven home games. They have lost 11 of their last 14 against a team with a winning percentage above .600.
I can’t stay away from the Angels on the road right now. They are just finding ways to win and Skaggs being on the mound doesn’t seem like a big problem. He has a low ERA and WHIP and the Angels’ hitters get to face a struggling Gonzalez. Stick with Los Angeles to earn another road win.
The Pick: Los Angeles Angels -105
