Los Angeles Angels vs. Los Angeles Dodgers Betting Predictions

The Los Angeles Angels enter this matchup third in the AL West standings, eight and a half games behind the Houston Astros for first place. The Angels most recently went 1-2 SU in a three-game series against the Mets and have lost 16 of their last 18 games. The offense has averaged just 3.33 runs per game over that stretch while the bullpen has given up 5.77 runs per game. The left-hander Reid Detmers is scheduled to take start on Wednesday. Detmers is 2-2 in 10 games this season with an ERA of 3.83 and has given up 34 hits, 21 earned runs, and struck out 32 batters in 49.1 innings of work.  

The Los Angeles Dodgers are currently tied with the San Diego Padres for first place in the NL West. The Dodgers were swept in their most recent three-game series against San Francisco and have lost six of their last 10 games. The offense struggled against the Giants, scoring just four runs throughout the series. This is well below their season average of 5.15 runs per game. The Dodgers bullpen has been solid all season and have a team ERA of 3.06. Left-handed pitcher Tyler Anderson is expected to take the mound Wednesday. Anderson is 7-0 in 11 games this season with an ERA of 3.07 and has given up 51 hits, 20 earned runs, and struck out 55 batters in 58.2 innings.  

I like the Dodgers to cover the runline in this matchup. Detmers has pitched well for the Angels this season, but only averages about four to six innings per game. When he gets pulled, I expect the Dodgers offense to take this one over. I also do not see the Angels getting much offensive production with how poorly they have been playing. Backing the Dodgers to cover the runline.

Los Angeles Angels vs. Los Angeles Dodgers Betting Conclusion

The Angels have not given bettors any reason to back them as of late and this matchup is no different. I expect Detmers to have a decent outing for the Angels, but the Dodgers should take this one over at some point. The Angels offensive struggles should continue as well as this Dodgers bullpen has been one of the best in the league this season. Backing the Dodgers to cover the runline here.
