Angels strong on the road

It’s not often that you would say a team is happy to get away from home, but the Angels have been a mess at home this year, going just 1-5 in their last six of the homestand. Los Angeles is now 26-21 overall and 14-4 on the road. The Angels are putting up 4.66 runs per game this season while allowing 4.21 per contest.

Garrett Richards is taking the mound for the Angels tonight. He has pitched nine times this season and has a 4-2 record with a 3.47 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP. Richards has pitched 46.2 innings this year and has 53 strikeouts with 21 walks.

Blue Jays struggling as well

The Blue Jays come into this series on a four-game losing streak and have lost seven of their last eight. Toronto is now 22-25 overall and 11-15 at home. The Blue Jays are putting up 4.77 runs per game this season while allowing 4.96 per contest.

J.A. Happ is getting the start for the Blue Jays tonight. He has started nine games this season and has a 5-3 record with a 4.15 ERA and 1.13 WHIP. He has pitched a total of 52 innings and has 66 strikeouts with 13 walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Los Angeles

The Angels have won their last seven road games against a losing team and they have also won 23 of their last 33 Tuesday games.

Toronto

The Blue Jays have dropped five of their last six following a loss and they have lost five straight against AL West teams.

Prediction:

The Blue Jays have been in a real funk and I don’t think Happ is going to be able to get them back on track. The Angels are a strange team, being able to dominate on the road while struggling on the road. Getting away from home could continue to be good for them as they have been in a funk as well. I expect Los Angeles to ride Richards to a win tonight.

 

The Pick: Los Angeles Angels -110
