Phillies Looking To Pound Angels Again

If you are looking to bet on MLB then you will have no shortage of options on Saturday. The Philadelphia Phillies welcome the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday night to continue their three-game interleague series.

Los Angeles enters this game having lost nine straight, and they are now 27-26. The Angels looked like a team ready to contend in the AL West, but they are heading in the wrong direction in a hurry.

Philadelphia improved to 23-29  with a win on Friday night, but it’s been a long MLB season for the Phillies. Manager Joe Girardi was fired this week in an attempt to get this team headed in the right direction again.

The MLB lines for this game at BetUS Sportsbook have the Philadelphia Phillies as the moneyline betting favorites at -180.

Los Angeles Looking for Offense

The Los Angeles Angels have scored just three total runs in their last four games, and they can’t seem to find any answers. After the loss on Friday night, manager Joe Maddon said, “When you’re not hitting like that, it looks like you’re lifeless. It kind of appears to be that way.”

The overall offensive numbers for Los Angeles are solid as this team is hitting .244 to go along with 68 home runs. Mike Trout leads the way with 13 home runs and Shohei Ohtani has driven in 32 runs.

If the Angels aren’t going to score any runs then they are going to need that pitching staff to take over in this game. Michael Lorenzen will make the start and he has gone 5-2 with a 3.19 ERA to begin the year.

Wheeler Needs To Deal for Phillies

The Philadelphia Phillies have been a mess all around, but Zack Wheeler has been one pitcher that has shined for them. Wheeler is 3-3 with a 3.16 earned run average, and he will look to keep the Angels hitters stumbling.

Bryce Harper and Kyle Schwarber each belted a pair of home runs in the win on Friday night, and this Phillies team has some power. Schwarber now leads the way with 14 home runs and Harper is hitting an impressive .308 to lead the team.

Philadelphia has simply had too many players underperforming, especially in the bullpen. The talent is there for the Phillies but they have to find a way to get things going.

Angels vs Phillies Head-to-Head

The win on Friday night by the Phillies was just their second win over the Los Angeles Angels. Philadelphia has now gone just 2-12 against the Angels franchise and snapped a 12-game losing streak dating to 2003.

Angels vs Phillies Prediction

Both of these teams have been extremely difficult to figure out, and that makes making MLB picks frustrating. Both teams should be better than their overall records, but the latest scores and odds just don’t match up with the talent.

The firing of Girardi could allow the Phillies to reset and regroup, and they were sharp in the series opener on Friday night. Los Angeles is still looking for its first win on this road trip, and this matchup doesn’t look favorable.

This game will be closer than the 10-0 loss in the series opener, but it’s still going to be a comfortable win for the home team. Take the Philadelphia Phillies -1½ as they cruise to another win over an Angels team that just can’t figure things out.

Pick: Philadelphia Phillies -1½  (+115)
