Angels at Tigers picks and predictions


Angels 5 Tigers 4


The Tigers have been treading water as of late but the Angels are starting to look like a legitimate team even without OF Mike Trout. They’ve won 7 of their last 10 and now get Sandoval on the mound who’s pitched really well in his last 2 starts.

He’s also facing an underwhelming Tigers lineup that’s struggled to plate runs all season so that should bode well for the Angels’ starter BET ANGELS (-120) to win outright on the road.

Run line/Against the spread

In their last 7 wins the Angels have beaten their opponents by at least 2 runs 5 times. However they’re still just 48-53 ATS this season which is the 7th-worst record in baseball. The Tigers on the other hand are 53-48 ATS good for 8th-best.

Detroit may be able to keep this game close as it did on Tuesday in the series opener PASS on the run line.


The total went over in their 1st meeting of the season a 7-6 win by the Angels on Tuesday. As well as Sandoval has pitched in his last 2 starts he’s been up and down this season. The same goes for Manning who doesn’t often pitch deep into games.

LEAN OVER 9 (+100) but tread lightly as it will be close.
