Cleveland Guardians vs LA Angels Prediction

The Cleveland Guardians continue to pile up the wins, and they remain the most profitable MLB team for bettors this season. The LA Angels continue to look like the team they've been over the last decade, and that's not a good thing. The Angels just aren't good, and Reid Detmers has been a train wreck with his 5.80 ERA and 1.42 WHIP. Detmers has been even worse at home this season. This line being this soft is probably the strangest line on Sunday's MLB card. I'll gladly side with the Guardians in game 3 against the Angels. The Guardians are the cash cows of MLB this season.
