Blue Jays drop opener
The Blue Jays dropped the series opener to the Angels, 8-5, on Thursday night. They still have won four of their last six. Toronto is now 34-40 overall and 14-20 on the road. The Blue Jays are averaging 4.51 runs per game this season while allowing 4.93 per contest.
Marco Estrada gets the start for the Blue Jays this evening. He is 4-6 through 14 starts with a 4.66 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP. Estrada has pitched a total of 77.1 innings this year and has 61 strikeouts with 20 walks.
Angels go back-to-back
The Angels won back-to-back games with Thursday’s victory. However, they are still just 3-7 in their last 10 games. Los Angeles is 40-35 overall and 19-19 at home. The Angels are averaging 4.60 runs per game this season while allowing 4.19 per contest.
Andrew Heaney is taking the mound for the Angels this evening. He has started 12 games this year and has a 3-5 record with a 3.64 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP. Heaney has logged 71.2 innings on the year and has 68 strikeouts with 21 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Blue Jays have lost four straight road games overall and eight straight road games against left-handed starters.
The Angels have won six of their last seven at home after struggling most of the year at home. They also have won five straight at home against a losing team.
The Angels seem they have finally fixed their struggles at home, getting to the .500 mark in their own ballpark. Heaney takes the mound today and has been very strong for them. I think he can navigate this Toronto lineup while the Angels hitter work their way past Estrada. I like Los Angeles to add another win to their small streak.
The Pick: Los Angeles Angels -150
