Minnesota Twins vs Los Angeles Angels prediction

I considered the Los Angeles Angels at home because Reid Detmers has been great this season through nearly 30 innings and Lopez is still trying to find his footing. However, there's not enough difference in the line for me to pull the trigger. When on, Lopez is an all star caliber pitcher and if the lines are going to be similar, I'm going to roll with him. Give me plus money give the Angels, but with the line being in pick em range, I'll bank on Lopez bouncing back.
