Angels vs Reds Betting Prediction

The Reds bats are going to struggle here. Anderson struggled a bit in his last start, but Anderson sits with an ERA of 1.47, and he’s going to step up in this game. The Angels might not run up the score, but they are going to score at least four runs, and that is going to be enough for them to get the job done. The Reds bats just aren’t going to be good enough to keep up. Back the Angels.
