LA Angels vs Arizona Diamondbacks Prediction 

Arizona has really struggled to live up to their preseason hype through the first few months of this season, and their pitching staff has been pretty bad in the last week. The Diamondbacks are just 16-17 at home this year, while the Angels are 15-18 on the road. LA has played decently well in their last few series, but the offense is inconsistent. The Angels are starting Canning, who has been very solid in recent outings. The Diamondbacks are going with Pfaadt, who has been a disaster over the last two weeks. I think we are going to see plenty of runs in this game, so my LA Angels vs Arizona Diamondbacks prediction is for this game to go over the total.
