Los Angeles Angels - Angels can’t be trusted
After being swept by the Detroit Tigers and suffering a loss of 5-3 in the final game of the series on Sunday, the Los Angeles Angels don't even appear interested in continuing to play the rest of the series. The defeat left the Los Angeles Angels with a record of 68-82 on the year, which meant they were no longer in the running for the playoffs. Shohei Ohtani leads the Angels in every offensive category, including batting average (.304), hits (151), home runs (44), and RBIs (95), while Brandon Drury leads the Angels in home runs (21), RBIs (70), and doubles (25). Ohtani also has a team-high eight triples, which puts him in first place for the Los Angeles Angels this season in terms of three-baggers, which makes it even more unfortunate that Ohtani will miss the remainder of the season. This game will be started for the Angels by Patrick Sandoval, who has a record of 7-13, a 4.48 earned run average, and 119 strikeouts so far this season.
Expert Betting Tips
I'm playing for the Tampa Bay Rays in this game. Because the Los Angeles Angels don't even seem interested in finishing out the season, I have absolutely no interest in betting on them to win the rest of their games. The Tampa Bay Rays have everything to play for right now; they have the better pitcher in this matchup, and I also feel that they have a significantly better bullpen in this particular matchup as well. Therefore, the home team ought to come out on top in this crucial encounter, where a win is very necessary.
