Red Sox Betting Preview
Boston moved to 26-21 after taking two of three from San Diego. The Red Sox nearly completed the sweep before being silenced by the Padres in the series finale, and they’ll seek more success in California here with the Angels. The Boston offense is 4.76 scoring runs per game, while batting .258, with a .340 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.89 ERA, with a 1.34 WHIP. Alex Verdugo has collected a hit in six of the last seven games, and he leads the team in hits (53) and runs (37). Rafael Devers homered twice in the game one win over SD, and he leads the Sox in HR (13) and RBI (44).
Tanner Houck (3-3, 5.48 ERA, 38 Ks) will get the ball for Boston. The fourth-year pitcher’s hot start has been cooled off by a pair of defeats. Houck gave up four runs in five innings last week to Seattle, and he’s only pitched one quality start through eight outings thus far.
Angels Betting Preview
Los Angeles moved to 22-21 after falling to Baltimore. The Angels have dropped five of their last seven games, and they’ll look to get back into the win column this Wednesday. The LAA offense is scoring 4.16 runs per game, while batting .252, with a .331 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.33 ERA, with a 1.27 WHIP. Mike Trout brings a four-game hit streak into this one, and he leads the Halos in runs (31), while batting .281. Shohei Ohtani leads LAA in hits (51) and RBI (32), while Gio Urshela now leads the team in batting (.302), after recording a hit in seven straight games.
Jaime Barria (1-1, 1.96 ERA, 21 Ks) will open for Los Angeles. The longtime Angels pitcher has made ten appearances this season, and he’s only allowed one run since struggling in his season debut versus Seattle. Barria completed four scoreless innings, and struck out three in his last home spot versus Texas.
Boston vs Anaheim Trends
Boston is 26-21 against the spread this season, with a 29-16-2 O/U record. LA Angels are 24-24 ATS this year, with a 22-22-4 over/under record.
Corey’s Free Pick
Los Angeles comes into a nice spot here at home with a struggling Tanner Houck set to go for Boston. Houck has allowed three runs or more in each of the last five games, and the Halos should be able to find production off of him. This feels like a spot we can lean on the Angels in, and back with the Over for insurance.
