Guardians at Angels picks and predictions


Guardians 5 Angels 3


The Angels are going with a bullpen game and DH Shohei Ohtani has yet to return to the lineup. Yet they are slight favorites. And we should take advantage of that.

Quantrill faced the Angels in May and held them to 3 ER over 6 IP. That team had Ohtani and Mike Trout and if he can hold the Angels to that the Guardians should prevail.

Take the GUARDIANS -105.

Run line/Against the spread

Two of the 3 games in this matchup this season were decided by 1 run. However there’s far too much juice to consider Los Angeles +1.5 and I don’t have enough confidence to go with the Cleveland on the -1.5.



The Guardians are 5-5 O/U over the last 10 and the Angels are 7-2-1. The Over is 4-5-1 in this matchup over the last 10. The pitching matchup screams Over but I don’t have enough confidence in either offense to cash it. Each team has scored more than 3 runs just twice in 6 games.

This shapes up to be a game with a lot of traffic and a lot of futility with RISP. Take the UNDER 8.5 (-105).
