Angels can’t hit their stride

The Angels failed to win consecutive games on Wednesday by suffering a 6-1 loss for their third loss in four games. The Angels are now 30-26 overall and 18-9 on the road. Los Angeles is putting up 4.73 runs per game this season while allowing 4.15 per contest.

Andrew Heaney will get the start for the Angels on Thursday. He is making his ninth start this season and has a 2-3 record with a 3.09 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP. Heaney has pitched 46.2 innings this season and has 51 strikeouts with 17 walks.

Tigers looking to take series

The Tigers have won two of the three games in this series following Wednesday’s win. They also have won five of their last seven overall. Detroit is now 16-12 at home this season while posting a 25-30 record overall. The Tigers are scoring 4.22 runs per game this season while allowing 4.70 per contest.

Ryan Carpenter gets the start for the Tigers this afternoon. He has appeared in three games this year and is 0-1 with an 8.31 ERA and a 1.73 WHIP. He has pitched a total fo 8.2 innings and has three walks with four strikeouts.

MLB Betting Trends

Los Angeles

The Angels have lost six of Heaney’s last seven road starts and they are just 4-11 in his last 15 starts overall.

Detroit

The Tigers have won four of their last five home games against a left-handed starter and 10 of their last 14 home games overall.

Prediction:

I understand the Angels have the edge in terms of starting pitching, but the odds are to large for a team that is really struggling lately. The Tigers have put up 15 runs over their two wins in this series, so their hitting has been able to get to the L.A. pitching. While the Angels may succeed at the plate, they have not shown a lot of consistency there to believe they can run away from Detroit.

 

The Pick: Detroit Tigers +180
