Philadelphia Phillies vs LA Angels Prediction

Los Angeles comes into this game after winning the first game in this series, but they haven’t won back to back games in over three weeks. The Angels pitching staff is a disaster right now, but they are going with Tyler Anderson, who has been outstanding to start this year. Philadelphia is one of the best teams in the MLB right now and they are top 11 in team ERA and runs scored. The Phillies are crushing the baseball right now, but we will see if they can get to Anderson. On the other side, Spencer Turnbull has been very solid for the Phillies and has allowed only one earned run on the road in two starts. It was nice to see the Angels get a win in game one, but I can’t pick them to win two in a row. My Philadelphia Phillies vs LA Angels prediction is for the Phillies to win and cover the run line.
