The Cleveland Guardians will host the Los Angeles Angels for a three-game set this weekend from Progressive Field.

Angels Betting Preview 

Los Angeles moved to 20-18 after dropping two of three to Houston. The Angels dropped four of their six games during their home stand, and they’ll look to avoid skidding this weekend. The LAA offense is scoring 5.63 runs per game, while batting .252, with a .331 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 3.87 ERA, with a 1.27 WHIP. Mike Trout has a hit in six of the last seven games, and he leads LAA in runs (26), while batting .287. Ohtani leads the Angels in hits (41) and BA (.293), with 24 RBI after homering in the ninth Wednesday. Hunter Renfroe holds the team-lead in RBI (26), after producing runs in three of the last four games.

Tyler Anderson (1-0, 5.40 ERA, 18 Ks) will make the road start for Los Angeles. The eighth-year lefty put together another quality outing last on Sunday versus Texas, striking out six in five innings of work, while allowing two runs. Anderson has pitched well in two of his three road starts this season, and he’ll look to build on his last two outings this Friday.

Guardians Betting Preview

Cleveland fell to 17-20 after dropping two of three to Detroit. The Guardians have flat out struggled at the plate, as they’ve only managed to score more than three runs once in their last ten games. The Cleveland offense is scoring 3.85 runs per game, while batting .232, with a .311 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.04 ERA, with a 1.30 WHIP. Jose Ramirez has produced a run in three of the last four games, and he leads Cleveland in BA (.283) and RBI (20).  Steven Kwan has a hit in five of the last seven, and he’s second on the team in hitting at .265. 

Logan Allen (1-1, 2.70 ERA, 17 Ks) will take the hill for Cleveland. The rookie pitcher appears to be settling in nicely in the big leagues through three starts. Allen struck out eight in his first starts versus Miami and Boston, and he only allowed two runs in 5.2 innings pitched last time out versus Minnesota. Allen has only allowed five earned runs combined, but he’ll face a stiff Angels lineup here headlined by their dynamic duo. 

Anaheim vs Cleveland Trends

LA Angels are 18-20 against the spread this season, with a 18-18-2 over/under record. Cleveland is 15-22 ATS this year, with a 12-24-1 O/U record.

Corey’s Free Pick

Cleveland comes into game one with a small advantage on the mound, but their struggles at the plate are alarming and apparent. The Angels have been a lot stronger on the offensive end, and  they should be able to find ways to produce against a rookie in Logan Allen. Back LAA for the first matchup, and with the Guardians visibly struggling at the plate, give the under a look as well.
