Angels in a slump
The Angels suffered another loss on Monday, falling 9-3 at Detroit in the series opener. They are just 4-9 in their last 13 games to drop to 29-25 overall and 17-8 on the road. Los Angeles is putting up 4.65 runs per game this season while allowing 4.19 per contest.
Nick Tropeano takes the mound for the Angels this evening. He is 2-3 through seven starts this year and has a 3.86 ERA with a 1.24 WHIP. Tropeano has pitched a total of 39.2 innings and has 32 strikeouts with 16 walks.
Tigers heating up
The Tigers have now won four of their last five games thanks to Monday’s victory over the Angels. Detroit is now 15-11 at home this season while posting a 24-29 record overall. The Tigers are scoring 4.26 runs per game this season while allowing 4.62 per contest.
Michael Fulmer gets the start for the Tigers this evening and has a 2-3 record with a 4.08 ERA and 1.27 WHIP over 10 starts. Fulmer has pitched a total of 57.1 innings this season and has 51 strikeouts with 20 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Angels are just 2-8 in their last 10 games on grass and 2-5 in their last seven games against a losing team.
Detroit has won nine of its last 12 home games and four of its last five on Tuesday. They also are 16-7 in Fulmer’s last 23 starts after scoring five runs or more in their previous game.
The Angels are in a real funk right now and I don’t trust them to pull themselves out of it. Fulmer hasn’t been great, but he is still one of Detroit’s most reliable starters and capable of having a really strong start. The Angels definitely have more talent at the plate, but they haven’t been able to make it work for them lately. I think Detroit will continue to ride their momentum to another win.
The Pick: Detroit Tigers +110
