Cleveland Guardians vs LA Angels Prediction

The Cleveland Guardians continue to rack up the wins, and it's kind of strange that oddsmakers keep throwing out these soft lines. Yes, Logan Allen has had his struggles this season, but he's going up against the Angels and Patrick Sandoval. There's not a lot to like about the Angels, and there's even less to like when going up against an above average team. The Cleveland Guardians and a pick em price smells weird, but I'm not going to argue about it. The Guardians are the better team in better form. Give me the Guardians.
