Twins at Angels picks and predictions
Angels 5 Twins 4
BET ANGELS (-155).
Los Angeles is 13-4 in its last 17 home games vs. right-handed starters while Minnesota is just 2-6 in its last 8 on the road vs. right-handed pitching. The Angels should be able to bounce back after Saturday’s blowout loss especially with Ohtani on the mound. The Twins are just 8-23 in their last 31 road games vs. teams with a winning record and should struggle to beat the Angels in back-to-back games.
Run line/Against the spread
Three of Los Angeles’ last 4 wins have been by exactly 1 run. Minnesota +1.5 (-160) should hit but there is no need to pay the higher price on the run line when Angels moneyline is the better play. Bet Los Angeles moneyline and/or the total instead.
BET OVER 7.5 (-120).
The Over is 3-1-1 in Los Angeles’ last 5 games and 5-1-1 in its last 7 vs. teams with a winning record.
The Over has gone 6-2-1 in the last 9 meetings between these teams in Los Angeles and should hit again Sunday with the market overcompensating for López and Ohtani being named as the starters.
