Both the Twins and the Angels have been extremely disappointing this year as we reach the midway point of June. The Twins won’t compete for the AL Central title, and it doesn’t look like the Angels will have a shot at the West either.
The Twins are in the midst of a season they’d like to forget, but unfortunately they can’t. Minnesota has done a complete 180 from last year and concludes the second week of June with fewer than 20 wins.
It’s been a nightmare for the Twins, who have struggled both on the mound as well as at the plate.
Miguel Sano and Joe Mauer seem to be the lone bright spots in Minnesota’s lineup, and the pitching has also been full of holes.
Ricky Nolasco will toe the rubber in the first game of this series.
He comes in with a 2-4 record and a 5.17 ERA. His WHIP is much better at just 1.30, and he’s fared well over his last two road starts.
Still, Nolasco will need some help from his offense, and that’s easier said than done. The Twins rank 22nd in OBP, 23rd in OPS and 21st in slugging, so Nolasco will have to be sharp.
Los Angeles Angels
Mike Trout, Albert Pujols and Johnny Giovatella have powered the Angels’ offense this year, but the pitching has not done the club any favors. L.A., who comes into this game 4th in the AL West, ranks 25th in ERA and 27th in home runs allowed.
Veteran Jered Weaver has had to shoulder the burden for many of those problems, carrying an ERA of 5.56.
Weaver was shelled for six earned in just 5.1 innings against the Yankees in his last start, and he’s yet to develop any sort of rhythm this season. Weaver has been an Angels staple for a while now, but he’s getting up there in age.
He’s carrying an ERA over 5.00 at Angel Stadium, and it’s easy to see that his best days are behind him.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Twins are 7-22 on the road.
- Twins are 10-25 in night games.
- Angels are 13-18 at home.
- Angels are 4-6 when Weaver starts.
- Opponents are batting .314 against Weaver this year.
Free Minnesota Twins vs. Los Angeles Angels MLB Prediction:
The Angels are a better team than the Twins, but -140 is a lot of juice to lay on a guy who’s carrying a 5.56 ERA. The Angels will probably win this game because their bats are superior to Minnesota’s, but this one should be high-scoring.
Neither Nolasco nor Weaver is pitching very well, so the over is definitely in play.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Over 8.5
There is better value on the Twins in this spot, but I’m still not confident putting my money on them. I’ll stick with the total, which looks like it will be a high one since both pitchers have struggled this year.
