The Los Angeles Angels and Minnesota Twins clash Sunday in game 3 of an MLB series at Target Field. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.
Los Angeles Angels Betting Preview
The Angels need a win after losing 8 of their last 10 games. The Angels are 1 of 7 AL teams out of playoff contention. The Angels pitching staff is 23rd in ERA (4.65), 25th in WHIP (1.42) and 22nd in quality starts (46). The Angels' offense is 15th in runs per game (4.59), 18th in batting average (.245) and 3rd in homers (224). Shohei Ohtani leads the Angels with 151 hits and 95 RBI, while Brandon Drury and Luis Rengifo have combined for 222 hits and 126 RBI. The Angels didn’t list a starting pitcher at the time this article was published.
Minnesota Twins Betting Preview
The Twins look for a win after winning 6 of their last 10 games. The Twins already clinched the AL Central. The Twins pitching staff is 6th in ERA (3.88), 4th in WHIP (1.20) and 1st in quality starts (74). The Twins offense is 12th in runs per game (4.70), 22nd in batting average (.241) and 5th in homers (219). Carlos Correa leads the Twins with 118 hits and 65 RBI, while Max Kepler and Donovan Solano have combined for 208 hits and 98 RBI. Joe Ryan gets the ball, and he is 10-10 with a 4.30 ERA and 181 strikeouts this season. Ryan is 0-0 with a 4.50 ERA and 14 strikeouts in his career against the Angels.
The Angels didn't list a starting pitcher at the time this article was published, but it doesn't matter to me. The Angels have given up on the season ages ago, and the losses keep piling up. The Twins continue to string wins together despite already clinching a division crown, and Joe Ryan has become a bit more consistent as of late. Ryan has also been at his best at home this season, where he has a 3.77 ERA and .227 allowed batting average. Ryan has allowed 2 or fewer runs in 4 of his last 5 starts. Give me the Twins and the RL for max betting value.
