The Orioles and Angels will play game 2 on the series Saturday night in Los Angeles. We will see Spenser Watkins for the O’s and Syndergaard for the Angels.
The Angels opened as big favorites laying -200 while the Orioles are +200 underdogs. The total is at 8.5.
Spenser Watkins comes into this game with a 0-0 record and a 2.25 ERA in 8 innings this season. Last start he want 5 innings, allowing 2 hits and giving up 1 earned run against the Athletics. I’m not exactly sure how well Watkins has pitched but his statcast page is making it look like he hasn’t been that great.
Watkins is in under the 50th percentile on mostly everything on his page. This includes average exit velocity, hard hit percent, expected ERA, expected batting average, and strikeout percent. This is pretty concerning when you look at what value you could get out of the Orioles as a bettor. He is going to be facing the best lineup he has seen all season also in the Angels. Good luck young fella!
Anthony Santander has the best hitter so far for the Orioles. He is hitting .275 which leads the team, but he only has scored 2 runs, hit 1 HR, and has 1 RBI. I don’t necessarily blame him for the lack of production, the Orioles offense isn’t good and they seem to never score runs. The Orioles are last in the MLB in runs scored, and facing Syndergaard probably won’t make that any easier.
Los Angeles Angels
Noah Syndergaard is off to a great start with the Angels this season and we all love to see it. Syndergaard has a 2-0 record with a 1.59 ERA in 11.1 innings of work. In his last start vs the Rangers, he pitched 6 innings giving up 2 earned runs and striking out 4. The thing we have seen is his fastball MPH is down a bit from his time with the Mets and the strikeouts are way down. Currently, Syndergaard is in the 10th percentile for strikeout percentage; but as long as he continues to not give up hard contact, he should be fine.
Syndergaard is in the 91st percentile for average exit velocity. The two stats to keep following for Thor is the strikeout percent and average exit velocity. If he isn’t going to be striking batters out at a high percent, he is going to need to keep the average exit velocity in the 80+ percentile to keep having success.
Since the last time I’ve wrote about the Angels, Ohtani has done some impressive things on the mound and hitting. Ohtani has 3 HRs and 9 RBIs and has been hot for the last week. One player for the Angels that has been ice cold to start this season is Anthony Rendon; he is hitting .200 with 11 strikeouts in 35 at-bats this season.

Baltimore Orioles vs. Los Angeles Angels MLB Prediction:
I have a little spin on the over in this game that involves me not having to worry at all about the Orioles scoring. I will be taking the Angels team total over in this one. I don’t think Watkins ERA is going to keep standing on bad underlaying stats.
Obviously, I love the Angels in this game, but I don’t want to lay the heavy juice with the ML and not a huge fan of laying the run lines. Let’s lock in the Angels TT over and win some cash!
