Angels Looking for Revenge
MLB Playoff hopefuls meet up on Sunday to wrap up a four-game weekend series as the Los Angeles Angels welcome the Toronto Blue Jays. This game will provide a solid MLB betting opportunity.
Toronto had been inconsistent but the Jays have rattled off four straight road wins. The Blue Jays are still just 26-20, but they are starting to look like a contender in the AL East.
Los Angeles has now lost four straight and has fallen to 27-21. The Angels are still in the mix in the AL West Division, but this has been a brutal stretch, especially at home.
The MLB lines for this game have the Los Angeles Angels as the slight moneyline betting favorites at -122.
Pitching Starting to Power Toronto
The Toronto Blue Jays enter the series finale with a ton of momentum, and they have been doing all of the little things needed to win. After Saturday night, manager Charlie Montoya said, “The one thing about this game is again everybody did something to win it. Awesome. Nail biters every day.”
Pitching has really been good for Toronto throughout the regular season, but even better of late. Jose Berrios will be looking to keep that trend going, but he is just 3-2 with a 4.75 ERA to begin the year.
George Springer has started to show off his power of late, and Matt Chapman had a huge three-run home in the win on Saturday. Springer leads the team with nine home runs and 26 RBIs, but the rest of the team is heating up as well.
Offense MIA for Angels
The Los Angeles Angels have two of the best offensive players in baseball, but the entire team has been coming up short of late. Los Angeles has scored 13 total runs over the last four games, and that’s just not good enough to get the job done.
Mike Trout leads the team with 13 home runs and a .320 batting average, but he needs some help from the rest of this team. The overall offensive numbers for the Angels have been great, but they are currently all slumping at the same time.
Patrick Sandoval will be on the mound on Sunday, and he has had a big season for the Angels. Sandoval is 3-1 with a 1.79 ERA, and he could take some pressure off of the offense with a dominant outing.
Blue Jays vs Angels Head-to-Head
These two teams don’t meet up often as they are not in the same division. This has been a pretty competitive head-to-head matchup over the years though, but the Blue Jays have taken complete control this season, winning the first three games.
