Twins streak snapped

The Twins had their five-game win streak come to an end on Thursday in a 7-4 loss to the Angels in Los Angeles. Minnesota comes into this game 15-18 overall and 8-11 on the road. The Twins are putting up 4.45 runs per game this season while allowing 5.03 runs per contest.

Lance Lynn gets the start for the Twins tonight. He has started six games this year and has a 1-3 record with a 7.28 ERA and a 1.96 WHIP. Lynn has pitched 29.2 innings this year and has 33 strikeouts with 23 walks.

Angels inch toward .500 at home

With Thursday’s win, the Angels are inching toward the .500 mark at home. They have won their last four at home to move to 9-10 on their turf. The Angels are now 23-14 overall. Los Angeles is putting up 5.22 runs per contest and is giving up 4.24 runs per contest.

Tyler Skaggs gets the start for the Angels on Friday night. He is 3-2 on the mound through seven starts with a 3.08 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP. Skaggs has pitched 38 innings this year and has 39 strikeouts with 11 walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Minnesota

The Twins are just 3-9 in their last 12 games following a loss and they are 1-5 in Lynn’s last six starts. They are also 0-4 in his last four starts against a winning team.

Los Angeles

The Angels have won six straight against AL Central opponents and seven of their last nine overall. They are also 11-5 in their last 16 games after a win.

Prediction:

I think the Angels get to .500 at home tonight. Skaggs has been pretty stead on the mound and he is up against a really poor Twins’ pitcher in Lynn. Lynn is putting on nearly two baserunners per inning. That is going to lead to some big innings for the Angels, who have some explosive bats.

 

The Pick: Los Angeles Angels -180
