Angels Betting Preview 

Los Angeles moved to 21-18 after defeating Cleveland. The Angels started their road trip on a good note, and they’ll look to double down Saturday. The LAA offense is scoring 4.78 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 doubled in the game one win over the Guardians, and he leads LAA in runs (27), 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 (27), after producing runs in four of the last five games.

Reid Detmers (0-5, 5.10 ERA, 38 Ks) will make the road start for Los Angeles. The third-year lefty is enduring a tough stretch to open the season, and he dropped his second start in a row after failing to make it through the fifth inning on Sunday versus Texas. Detmers has spent time on the losing end, but he has managed to clear six strikeouts in five of six appearances. 

Guardians Betting Preview

Cleveland fell to 17-21 after losing to Los Angeles. 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 four of the last five games, and he leads Cleveland in BA (.278) and RBI (21).  Steven Kwan has a hit in four of the last six, and he’s first on the team in hits (39).

Cal Quantrill (2-2, 3.89 ERA, 21 Ks) will take the mound for Cleveland. The fifth-year pitcher put together another strong outing versus Minnesota on Sunday, striking out four in seven shutout innings to earn his second victory of the season. Quantrill isn’t a high strikeout rate pitcher, but he knows how to get outs, and he’s delivered four quality starts in his last five appearances. 

Anaheim vs Cleveland Trends

LA Angels are 19-20 against the spread this season, with a 18-18-3 over/under record. Cleveland is 15-23 ATS this year, with a 12-24-1 O/U record.

Corey’s Free Pick

After dropping game one, Cleveland comes into the second contest with an advantage in discipline on the mound, and I like their chances of responding. It hasn’t been pretty, but it’s been effective in regards to Cal Quantrill’s form, while Reid Detmers hasn’t been able to get things going yet this season.
