Los Angeles is 4-1 in their last 5 road games and 6-2 in their last 8 game three’s of a series. The over is 5-1 in Los Angeles’ last 6 game three’s of a series. Detroit is 23-51 in their last 74 Sunday games and 10-29 in their last 39 games. The under is 5-0-1 in Detroit’s last 6 home games. Los Angeles is 41-17 in these two teams last 58 head to head meetings.
Eduardo Rodriguez is making his first start for Detroit since May 18 and will be looking to get off to a fresh start after a few months of personal issues kept him away. For the Angels, Shohei Ohtani will take the mound and he is coming off of an outing where he pitched six innings and gave up two runs against Seattle. I like the Angels to win by at least two runs and expect Rodriguez to get knocked around has he gets used to big league hitting again.
