Preview

The Los Angeles Angels will host the Toronto Blue Jays to play a 4-game series at the Angel Stadium of Anaheim. The Blue Jays tied 1-1 in a short series against the Cardinals and the Angels also tied 1-1 vs Rangers.

Toronto Blue Jays

The Blue Jays get here with a 23-20 record and have won 3 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 3.67 runs while allowing 3.84 runs per game. George Springer leads the team with .271 ERA, 24 RBI and 8 home runs. 

Alek Manoah leads the team with a 1.62 ERA and 43 strikeouts recording 5 wins for the Jays.

Probable Pitcher:

Hyun Jin Ryu (1-0, 6.00 ERA) will be on the mound for the Blue Jays in the 1st game of the series. Ryu picked up the win Friday, scattering six hits over six scoreless innings in a 2-1 victory over the Reds. He struck out three without walking a batter. He hasn't pitched against the Angels since 2019 where he allowed only 1 run across 6 innings.

Los Angeles Angels

The Angels have won 3 games in a row and are 27-18 so far this season. They are currently the #5 offense in the MLB averaging 4.76 runs per game while allowing 3.69 runs. Mike Trout leads the team with a .328 avg, 12 home runs and 28 RBI. Ohtani has 9 Home runs and 28 RBI.

Michael Lorenzen leads the pitching staff with a 3.05 ERA, 29 strikeouts and 5 wins recorded for the Angels.

Probable Pitcher:

Shohei Ohtani (3-2, 2.82 ERA) will be on the mound for the Angels in the 1st game of the series. Ohtani allowed 2 runs in 6 hits and struck out 7 batters across 6 innings last week against the Rangers. He had one start against the Blue Jays last season and allowed 2 runs in 6 innings.

BETTING TRENDS

The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Toronto's last 10 games.

Toronto are 4-10 SU in their last 14 games against LA Angels.

LA Angels are 12-4 SU in their last 16 games at home.

LA Angels are 4-2 SU in their last 6 games when playing at home against Toronto.

Prediction

The Blue Jays offense exploded against the Cardinals scoring 8 runs to win the game but they'll face Shohei Ohtani who beat them last season allowing 2 runs in 6 innings. Ryu will start for the Blue Jays and he's coming from pitching 6 scoreless innings vs Cincinnati. This should be a pitching duel so expect a low scoring game. Take the under.

PICK: Under 7.5 (-110)
