Angels in a funk
The Angels dropped Tuesday’s series opener, 5-3 for their sixth loss in seven games. Los Angeles is now 26-22 overall and 14-5 on the road. The Angels are putting up 4.62 runs per game this season while allowing 4.23 per contest.
Tyler Skaggs gets the start for the Angels tonight. He is 3-3 through nine starts this year and is carrying a 2.88 ERA with a 1.24 WHIP. Skaggs has pitched a total of 50 innings and has 53 strikeouts with 16 walks.
Blue Jays end four-game skid
The Blue Jays put an end to their losing streak on Monday with the 5-3 win over the Angels. They still have lost seven of their last nine. Toronto is now 23-25 overall and 12-15 at home. The Blue Jays are putting up 4.77 runs per game this season while allowing 4.92 per contest.
Aaron Sanchez gets the start for the Blue Jays tonight. He has appeared in nine games this season and has a 2-4 record with a 4.47 ERA and a 1.53 WHIP. Sanchez has pitched 50.1 innings this season and has 40 strikeouts with 29 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Angels are 4-1 in Skaggs’ last five road starts and they are 14-4 in their last 18 road games and 10-2 in their last 12 road games against a right-handed starter.
The Blue Jays are just 1-6 in their last seven home games and they have lost six straight following a win. They are also just 3-9 in their last 12 Wednesday games.
Both teams are in a funk right now, but I still feel like the Angels have something more to offer than Toronto. Los Angeles has been a good road team this year and still have some of the best players in baseball. Toronto can’t really match the L.A. in terms of overall talent.
The Pick: Los Angeles Angels -115
