(MLB) LA Angels vs. Detroit, 08/18/2021 7:10 PM, Score: 3 - 1
Money Line: -125.00 LA Angels (Away)
Result: Win
I like the Los Angeles Angels to beat the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday. The Angels have picked up 2 wins in their last 3 games, winning the first game of the series with the Tigers 8-2. Shohei Ohtani (7-1, 2.93 ERA) has been having a great season both pitching and hitting. He has been credited with 6 straight wins and the team has won their last 3 games when he has started on the mound. He has been pitching very well lately, his last 5 starts having less than 3 earned runs allowed in each. The Tigers are currently on a 2 game losing skid where they have scored just 2 runs total between the 2 games. Tarik Skubal (8-10, 4.10 ERA) will be starting on the mound for them in this one and he has been up and down this season. He has not allowed an earned run in his last 2 starts, but in the 5 games before that he was averaging over 3 earned runs per game. He has not allowed a run in 11 innings but I think that will come to an end here. Ohtani has been a much more consistent pitcher this season and the Angels are just the better team in general. I like the Angels to win this one.

T.M. Prediction: 6-2 Angels.
