MLB Wagering ha a pair of tired teams facing off late this evening. The Minnesota Twins (50-42) are in a tailspin as of late and are on the west coast. Angels fans are seeing red hot bats but their team is coming off of a day night doubleheader with Boston. Strong pitching matchups this evening has the total at 7 1/2 with the ML placing the Angels close to a -140 home favorite. What does HRWager foresee as the winning wager of the evening?
MLB Wagering : How Hot?
Pujols has lead the way as of late especially in light of his three home runs yesterday. This pushed his career total ahead of Mike Schmidt. Trout is on his tail for the team lead with 28 dingers. He has seven in the last ten games to keep pace with Albert. So how will Gibson of Minnesota (8-6 2.85 ERA) attempt to cool them down? Well he is showing no signs of slowing down as the season progresses. In his lat four starts, he is down to 1.30 ERA. However, the Angels have his number getting almost eight across per nine innings against him.
Lack of Run Support
Hard to think of any Angels starter lacking offensive production behind him but Shoemaker’s 2015 fits this bill. He has a very workman like 3.35 ERA in his last eight game but only has one win in that stretch. This is because of the paltry thirteen runs they have gotten for him as of late.
Dominance on both fronts will lead the Angels to the win tonight. They have won eight of nine at home. Also they thrive against the Twins winning nine of eleven from them. Some teams just dominate franchises. The Angels know how to extract wins from them. Look for the offense to continue and therefore get that extra bonus with the runline. – 1 1/2 at +150 for the Angels is the pick of the night for 7/21.
