The Los Angeles Angels and Cleveland Guardians face off on Monday in an MLB showdown at Progressive Field. 

The Los Angeles Angels sit with a 61-79 record overall and they are coming off another bad loss on Sunday. The pitching staff really struggled giving up 12 runs and that led to the eight-run defeat. The Angels' offense overall hasn’t been great and they are averaging 3.84 runs per game which is 26th in the league. Shohei Ohtani has hit 34 home runs and driven in 88 RBIs so far this year. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Guardians who sit with a 73-65 record overall and they are coming off a series sweep against the Minnesota Twins. The Guardians are averaging 4.16 runs per game which is 21st in the league. The pitching has been the strength and is ranked 8th in the league. Jose Ramirez is having a big season hitting 26 home runs and driving in 109 RBIs.

On the mound for the Angels will be Reid Detmers who sits with a 5-5 record and an ERA of 3.67. In his last start against the Astros, he went 4.1 innings giving up seven hits and four runs. 

On the mound for the Guardians will be Konnor Pilkington who sits with a 1-2 record and an ERA of 3.99. In his last start against the Mariners, he went 2.0 innings giving up zero hits and zero runs. 

Cleveland is 0-5 in their last five home games. The Guardians are 0-4 in Pilkington’s last four starts. The under is 3-0-2 in Pilkington’s last five starts on grass. The under is 5-0 in the Guardians' last five games against a right-handed starter. 

There is some value on the Angels here. The Guardians have lost the last four games with Pilkington on the mound. Detmers sits with an ERA of 3.67 and he is going to go slow down the Guardians' offense here. It might not be the prettiest win, but the Angels are going to secure the win. I also do believe this will be lower scoring, with a strong start by both teams and the under will cash.
