Syndergaard was charged with the loss Tuesday after he gave up 5 runs on 7 hits and a walk over 2.1 innings against the Yankees.

BETTING TRENDS

Boston are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games on the road.

Boston are 6-3 SU in their last 9 games when playing on the road against LA Angels.

LA Angels are 0-5 SU in their last 5 games at home.

LA Angels are 3-6 SU in their last 9 games when playing at home against Boston.

Prediction

The Angels were better in offense in their last game but the Phillies outscored them. They are now on an 11 game losing streak and have lost their last 5 games at home. Syndergaard has struggled this season and took the loss the last time he faced the Red Sox. Michael Wacha has dominated the Angels so the wrong team is favored here. Take the Red Sox.

PICK: Red Sox ML (+100)
