The Dodgers began the series atop the NL West, while the Angels were in third place in the AL West. The Dodgers are coming off being swept in three on the road vs. the division rival San Francisco Giants. Meanwhile, the Angels lost two of three recently vs. the visiting Mets in inter-league play.
The Angels recently made a massive change in the dugout. The club fired manager Joe Maddon last week after 12 consecutive losses. Phil Nevin is serving as the Angels’ interim manager. The 51-year-old former journeyman infielder has never been a manager.
The Dodgers took the last two meetings with the Angels in 2021. Heading into the set, the Angels led the all-time series 73-63.
Detmers has allowed 34 hits, 16 walks, and seven home runs, while tallying 32 strikeouts. Anderson has given up 51 hits and just nine walks, in addition to amassing 55 strikeouts.
Prior to the series, the Dodgers were second in the league in runs and on-base percentage, while being fifth in slugging percentage. Right fielder Mookie Betts was batting .278 with 16 home runs, and 39 RBI. First baseman Freddie Freeman had a batting average of .288 with five home runs and 34 RBI. The top-notch Dodgers bullpen ranked eighth in WHIP, ninth in ERA and WHIP, and 10th in strikeouts.
Leading up to the set, the Angels were 12th in runs and 15th in on-base percentage. Center fielder Mike Trout was batting .293 with 16 home runs and 34 RBI. Versatile starting pitcher Shohei Ohtani leads the team in hits (59) and RBI (37), while being second in runs (41). The middling Angels bullpen ranked 15th in WHIP, 16th in hits, and 23rd in ERA.
The host Dodgers are favored by 1.5 runs over the Angels in the final game of the set. Heading into the series, the Dodgers had a 37-23 SU record and were 33-27 against the spread. The Dodgers are 2-6 SU in their last eight home contests since May 30.
The Angels were 29-33 SU going into the set and 30-32 against the spread. The Angels were 12-15 SU on the road this season.
The over/under is set for 8.5 runs for the series finale.
Going into the series, the Dodgers were 15-11 in over/under at home. Meanwhile, the Angels were 16-10-1 on the road with the over/under. Sparks will fly under the Los Angeles sky and the OVER will hit in a high-scoring game despite the presence of the undefeated Anderson.
The Angels will cover the spread, but the Dodgers will get back on track at home to snap their losing streak.
