The Milwaukee Brewers and the Los Angeles Angels meet Tuesday in MLB action from Angel Stadium. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Milwaukee Brewers vs LA Angels Prediction.

Starting Pitching Matchup

The Milwaukee Brewers will send out Tobias Myers for the start here and Myers is 3-2 with a 3.76 ERA and 36 strikeouts this season. This will be Myers’ first career start against the Angels. Griffin Canning will get the nod for the Angels and is 2-7 with a 4.76 ERA and 50 strikeouts this season. This will be Canning’s first career start against the Brewers.

Milwaukee Brewers Recap

The Milwaukee Brewers come into this one looking to bounce back after starting the series with a 5-3 loss to the Angels in Monday’s series opener. The loss wasn’t what the Brewers were looking to start the set with after series wins over the Reds, Blue Jays and Tigers over the last week and a half.

Brewers Still Rolling Along Offensively

Going into Monday’s opener, William Contreras leads the Brewers with 87 hits including 17 doubles and 48 RBIs along with 9 home runs and a .367 OBP while Rhys Hoskins has 10 home runs with 28 RBIs and Willy Adames has a team-high 17 doubles with 12 home runs and 51 RBIs. Brice Turang leads the Brewers with 26 stolen bases while Adames has a team-high 67 strikeouts as well this season.

Why the Milwaukee Brewers will win

  • The Brewers have won each of their last six games against American League opponents following a loss.
  • The Angels have lost 12 of their last 14 games at Angel Stadium of Anaheim following a win.
  • The Brewers have covered the run line in each of their last nine road games against American League opponents following a loss.
  • The Angels have failed to cover the run line in five of their last six games against NL Central opponents that held a winning record.

Los Angeles Angels Recap

The Los Angeles Angels will look to pick up another victory after starting the series on a high note with their triumph over the Brew Crew on Monday. The win was definitely a welcome sight for the Angels after picking up their series win over the San Francisco Giants this past weekend.

Angels Starting To Pick Up Steam

Entering Monday’s action, Taylor Ward has 61 hits along with 12 doubles, 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, 62 strikeouts and 9 stolen bases. Luis Rengifo also has a team-high 63 hits and 18 stolen bases while Jo Adell has 12 home runs, 32 RBIs and 9 stolen bases as well.

Why the Los Angeles Angels will win

  • The Angels have won each of their last five games as home underdogs against National League opponents.
  • The Brewers have lost six of their last seven games as road favorites against AL West opponents.
  • The Angels have covered the run line in each of their last six home games against National League opponents.
  • The Brewers have failed to cover the run line in seven of their last eight games as favorites against AL West opponents.
  • The Brewers have trailed after 3 innings in each of their last eight road games against AL West opponents that held a losing record.
  • The Brewers have trailed after 5 innings in four of their last five games as favorites.

Milwaukee Brewers vs LA Angels Prediction

I’m on the over here. The Angels have started to figure it out offensively in recent weeks, and I think they can do some damage against Tobias Myers who, while showing some nice signs in recent starts, has had inconsistencies throughout a lot of the season and I think those inconsistencies could rear their ugly head here as well. On the other side, the Brewers have been consistent at the dish, and should be able to do some damage against Canning and this Angels bullpen which has one of the highest ERAs in the month of June of any relief staff. Give me the over here.

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