Canning sharp in win
Los Angeles shook off its recent struggles to post a 6-1 home victory Tuesday night over Detroit to improve to 56-53 overall and 29-27 at home. Matt Thaiss paced the Angels offense as he went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBIs. Shohei Ohtani finished 3-for-4 with a run and an RBI.

MLB Betting Trends
The Tigers are 31-72 in their last 103 road games. Detroit is 5-21 in the last 26 Norris starts.
The Angels are 6-1 in their last seven Wednesday games. Los Angeles is 36-16 in the last 52 meetings.
Suarez is young and raw, but full of potential as his high strikeout rate suggests. He should fare well against a lackluster Tigers lineup, especially when he should get plenty of run support with Mike Trout and the Angels hitters facing the inconsistent Norris and a weak bullpen. This one has all the writings of another LA victory and if you want to test the runline, feel free to do so.
