Los Angeles is 5-2 in their last 6 road games and 2-6 in their last 8 games. The over is 4-0-1 in Los Angeles’ last 5 road games. Cleveland is 15-5 in their last 20 game three’s of a series and 14-5 in their last 19 games against the AL West. The under is 20-6-2 in Cleveland’s last 28 games.

Both of these teams have won a game in this series and they will be looking for the series win in this matchup. The Guardians have had a very tough time scoring runs consistently, but their pitching staff has been solid. Cleveland is starting Tanner Bibee, who has allowed seven earned runs over his first three starts. Los Angeles is starting Patrick Sandoval, who has allowed two earned runs or fewer in three of his last five starts. I like the Angels in this game, as I trust their offense a lot more than Cleveland’s.
