Justin Dunn has allowed 11 runs and 16 hits in his last 18 innings while Griffin Canning has allowed 12 earned runs and 27 hits in his last 23 innings. I'm not trying to get behind either of these pitchers with the numbers they're putting up, and we're seeing an Angels team that's tearing the cover off the ball. Griffin Canning simply shouldn't be almost -200 favorite. Give me the over 10 runs, as we should see some fireworks in this contest.
