Lynch will be on the mound in the 3rd game of the series for the Royals. Lynch earned the win over the Athletics by allowing one run on four hits and two walks over five innings.

BETTING TRENDS

Kansas City are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games.

Kansas City are 7-13 SU in their last 20 games against LA Angels.

LA Angels are 2-12 SU in their last 14 games at home.

LA Angels are 8-3 SU in their last 11 games when playing at home against Kansas City.

Prediction

The Angels offense finally woke up on Tuesday game but not even two 3-runs home runs from Ohtani and 11 runs were enough to beat the Royals. They'll try to avoid a sweep by sending Ohtani to the mound who pitched 6 scoreless innings in his last start. Daniel Lynch is good but not as good as Ohtani so that will make the difference on this game. Take the Angels to finally get a win and cover the spread.

PICK: Angels -1.5 (-110)
