Angels back to winning
The Angels snapped back into shape on Tuesday with a 92 victory over the Tigers in Detroit. The Angels are now 30-25 overall and 18-8 on the road. Los Angeles is putting up 4.73 runs per game this season while allowing 4.15 per contest.
Shohei Ohtani gets the start for the Angels on Wednesday night. Ohtani is 4-1 on the season over seven starts with a 3.35 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP. Ohtani has pitched a total of 40.1 innings this year and has 52 strikeouts with 14 walks.
Tigers get rocked
The Tigers had won two straight and four of five before getting beat up by the Angels on Tuesday. Detroit is now 15-12 at home this season while posting a 24-30 record overall. The Tigers are scoring 4.22 runs per game this season while allowing 4.70 per contest.
Mike Fiers gets the start for the Tigers on Wednesday. Fiers has started nine times this season and has a 4-3 record with a 4.78 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP. Fiers has pitched a total of 49.0 innings and has 32 strikeouts with 10 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Angels are 8-3 in their last 11 against AL Central opponents and they also have won four straight starts from Ohtani.
The Tigers have won nine of their last 13 at home but are just 17-37 in their last 54 against AL West opponents and 7-16 in their last 23 Wednesday games.
The Angels got back to mashing the ball on Tuesday and the door should be open for more mashing tonight against Fiers. The Tigers will be seeing Ohtani for the first time, so it could be a slow start at the plate for Detroit hitters. Los Angels is a big favorite on the road, but I feel good about their chances to win by multiple runs.
The Pick: Los Angeles Angels -1.5 (-130)
