The Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Angels meet Tuesday in MLB action atAngel Stadium. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.
Boston Red Sox Betting Preview
The Boston Red Sox have scored 5 runs in their last 3 games and 3 or fewer runs in 5 of their last 10 games. The Red Sox have lost 9 straight games when scoring 3 or fewer runs. Alex Verdugo leads the Red Sox with 53 hits and 19 RBI, while Rafael Devers and Masataka Yoshida have combined for 92 hits and 72 RBI. Brayan Bello gets the ball, and he is 3-1 with a 4.45 ERA and 31 strikeouts this season. This will be Bello’s second career game against the Angels.
Los Angeles Angels Betting Preview
The Los Angeles Angels have scored 8 runs in their last 3 games and 3 or fewer runs in 5 of their last 10 games. The Angels have lost 5 of their last 6 games when scoring 3 or fewer runs. Shohei Ohtani leads the Angels with 51 hits and 32 RBI, while Gio Urshela and Mike Trout have combined for 97 hits and 42 RBI. Griffin Canning gets the ball, and he is 2-2 with a 6.14 ERA and 25 strikeouts this season. This will be Canning’s second career game against the Red Sox.
The Red Sox are 4-1 in their last 5 Tuesday games and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The Angels are 11-29 in their last 40 vs. American League East and 0-5 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series. The under is 4-0 in Red Sox last 4 road games. The under is 4-1 in Angels last 5 home games. The Red Sox are 9-4 in the last 13 meetings in Los Angeles and 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.
I don't trust the Los Angeles Angels to string wins together, and it's only a matter of time before the Red Sox offense breaks out. Griffin Canning has also been a mess through 29.1 innings, with his ERA over 6 and a 1.50 WHIP. If the Red Sox can't find offense here, something is wrong. I'll lean toward the road team in this Tuesday night contest.
