The Los Angeles Angels and the San Francisco Giants meet Saturday in MLB action from Oracle Park. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a LA Angels vs San Francisco Giants Prediction.

Starting Pitching Matchup

The Los Angeles Angels will send out Patrick Sandoval and Sandoval is 2-8 with a 5.23 ERA and 75 strikeouts this season. In his career, Sandoval is 0-1 with a 5.91 ERA and 9 strikeouts against the Giants. Keaton Winn will get the start for San Francisco here and is 3-7 with a 6.94 ERA and 40 strikeouts this season. This will be Winn’s first career start against the Angels.

Los Angeles Angels Recap

The Los Angeles Angels come into this one looking to build on their series-opening 8-6 win over the Giants from Friday’s matchup. The win got the Angels started on the right foot to try to bounce back from series losses to the Diamondbacks and Astros over the last week.

Angels Finally Show Life Offensively

Going into Friday’s opener, Taylor Ward leads the Angels with 61 hits along with 12 home runs and a team-high 36 RBIs. Mike Trout also has 10 home runs along with a pair of triples and 6 stolen bases, but remains out indefinitely with injury while Zach Neto has 16 doubles, 58 strikeouts and 8 stolen bases. Luis Rengifo also has a team-high 17 stolen bases while Jo Adell has 12 home runs, 30 RBIs and 9 stolen bases as well.

Why the Los Angeles Angels will win

  • The Angels have won each of their last five day games against teams that held a losing record.
  • The Giants have lost four of their last five games following a home loss.
  • The Angels have covered the run line in seven of their last eight games against National League opponents after playing the previous day.
  • The Giants have failed to cover the run line in nine of their last 11 home games against American League opponents.
  • The Angels have led after 3 innings in each of their last three games at Oracle Park.

San Francisco Giants Recap

The San Francisco Giants will try to rebound from their series-opening loss against the Angels in Friday’s matchup. The loss wasn’t ideal for the Giants if they wanted to keep their series win streak alive after taking out the Astros and Rangers in back-to-back series victories.

Giants Starting To Figure It Out Despite Loss

Entering Friday’s matchup, Thairo Estrada has 59 hits along with a team-high 8 home runs and 32 RBIs while also chipping in 12 doubles. Michael Conforto has 42 hits with 8 home runs, 7 doubles and 22 RBIs while Matt Chapman has a team-high 60 hits of his own alongside 18 doubles with 8 homers, 29 RBIs and 5 stolen bases. Chapman also has the dubious distinction of leading the Giants with 66 strikeouts this season.

Why the San Francisco Giants will win

  • The Angels have lost each of their last six road games against NL West opponents following a win.
  • The Giants have won 10 of their last 11 day games at Oracle Park following a loss.
  • The Angels have failed to cover the run line in each of their last six road games against NL West opponents following a win.
  • The Giants have covered the run line in each of their last seven Saturday day games.

LA Angels vs San Francisco Giants Prediction

I’m on the over here. I have zero faith in this starting pitching matchup, as Patrick Sandoval continues to struggle and Keaton Winn has allowed 24 runs in his last four starts single-handedly. These two teams also showed up offensively in Friday’s opener, combining for 14 runs when all was said and done, and I think we have another high-scoring game in this matchup. Give me the over here.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
