Preview

The Kansas City Royals and the Los Angeles Angels will play the 2nd game of the series at the Angel Stadium of Anaheim on Tuesday night. The Royals took the win 6-2 on Monday night to take the lead on the series.

Los Angeles Angels

The Angels have won 3 of their last 5 games and are 33-37 so far this season. They are averaging 4.2 runs per game while allowing 4 runs. Mike Trout leads the team with a .294 avg, 21 home runs and 43 RBI. Ohtani has 13 Home runs and 37 RBI.

Shohei Ohtani leads the pitching staff with a 3.28 ERA, 77 strikeouts and 5 wins recorded.

Probable Pitcher:

Reid Detmers (2-3, 4.25 ERA) will be on the mound for the Angels in the 2nd game of the series. He allowed 4 runs on 4 hits including 2 home runs no June 15th against the Dodgers. He was charged with the loss.

Kansas City Royals

The Royals get here with a 24-42 record and have won 4 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 3.7 runs and allowing 5.14 runs per game. Andrew Benitendi is batting for a .295 AVG. and 18 RBI while Salvador Perez has 11 home runs and 34 RBI.

Daniel Lynch leads the team with a 5.19 ERA, 60 strikeouts and 3 wins recorded for the Royals.

Probable Pitcher: Jonathan Heasley (1-3, 3.72 ERA)

Heasley will be on the mound in the 2nd game of the series for the Royals. He faced the Giants on Wednesday and pitched four innings, allowing two earned runs on five hits and two walks while striking out four.

BETTING TRENDS

Kansas City are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games.

Kansas City are 6-14 SU in their last 20 games against LA Angels.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of LA Angels' last 6 games against Kansas City.

LA Angels are 2-11 SU in their last 13 games at home.

Prediction

I can't believe what's going on with the Angels, they couldn't score more than 2 runs against Bubic who was holding a 7.40 ERA so the Royals took advantage of it and stole the win. These two starters are very unpredictable one day can pitch a perfect game and the other allow 5 runs. With the Angels losing 11 of their last 13 games at home it's hard to trust them so we'll go with the Royals.

PICK: Royals ML (+144)
