The Los Angeles Angels need a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Angels have scored eight runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last eight games. The Angels have split their last six games when scoring more than three runs. Mike Trout leads Los Angeles with 52 hits and 25 RBI while Kole Calhoun and Albert Pujols have combined for 40 RBI.

Wilson is 2-3 with a 5.49 ERA and 36 strikeouts in his career against the Tigers.
The Tigers are 6-2 in their last 8 games vs. a left-handed starter and 14-6 in their last 20 Thursday games. The Angels are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 1 of a series and 16-5 in Wilsons last 21 home starts. The Tigers are 14-41 in the last 55 meetings in Los Angeles and 3-13 in the last 16 meetings overall.
i like the value of the Tigers and the plus money, as the Angels have shown little to no consistency this season and are back in one of those losing stretches.
