Los Angeles Angels
After winning 6 straight games to get back over the .500-mark, Los Angeles suffered a series sweep at the hands of the division-leading Oakland Athletics earlier in the week.
The Halos enter this series with a 33-35 overall record, putting them 9 games back of the A’s in the division race.
LA will turn to AL MVP candidate Shohei Ohtani to open up the series and try to end the losing streak. In 9 starts, the Angels’ ace has posted a 2-1 record to go along with a 2.85 ERA.
He’s also been nearly unhittable at home, going 1-0 with a 1.85 ERA in 5 starts at Angel Stadium.
After being swept by the White Sox at home, the Tigers bounced back with a sweep of their own on the road against Kansas City.
Detroit now enters this series at 29-39, good for 4th place in the AL Central and 14 games back from the White Sox.
The Tigers are expected to hand the ball to right-handed rookie Matt Manning for his 2021 season debut on Thursday. Despite the call up Manning’s numbers at Triple-A have been downright terrible. His 8.07 ERA is the highest among qualified Triple-A starters.

Free Los Angeles Angels vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction:
Ohtani has cleaned things up pitching in his last 2 starts. It’s hard to quantify just how dominant Ohtani has been this season. The Angels’ right-hander has limited opponents to a .167 batting average this season while striking out an elite 34 percent of the hitters that he’s faced in 2021.
Meanwhile, Manning has struggled mightily at the minor league level and will be making his MLB debut against his hometown team.
Take the Angels to cover the run line at home in this AL battle in the series opener.
