Angels can’t find consistency

The Angles are coming off back-to-back losses at home to the Blue Jays. Prior to that they alternated three-game streaks last week. The Angels are 41-37 overall and 21-16 on the road. Los Angeles is putting up 4.54 runs per game this season while allowing 4.18 per contest.

Royals a mess

The Royals have lost nine of their last 10, failing to score more than three runs in their last six games. Kansas City is now 23-54 overall and 10-29 at home. KC is averaging 3.57 per game at the plate while allowing 5.53 per contest.

The Royals are handing the ball to Brad Keller to the mound this afternoon. He has started four games and pitched in a total of 25 this season. Keller has a 1-2 record with a 2.63 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP. Keller has 41.0 innings of work this year and has 24 strikeouts with 16 walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Los Angeles

The Angels are just 1-6 in their last seven road games, but they are 7-2 in Skaggs’ last nine road starts and four of his last five starts overall.

Kansas City

The Royals are just 5-23 in their last 28 against AL West opponents. They are 9-24 in their last 33 series openers.

Prediction:

The Angels have struggled to get a consistent win streak going, but they should have the edge over the Angels this afternoon. Skaggs has been strong on the mound and Los Angeles has good hitting behind him. The Royals are going with a reliever. While he has good numbers, he isn’t accustomed to pitching deep into games and isn’t likely to get much run support.

 

The Pick: Los Angeles Angels -165
