Los Angeles Angels at Baltimore Orioles
You know these two teams have a very similar record, O's are 41-31 and Angels are 40-33, in East coast West coast match up. They took two different roads to get here with O's taking the high road playing strong games from April 13th to May 26 did not lose more than two games in a row and had one 4 games in a row & two 5 games in a row while isolating losses between wins or multiple wins. That surprised many people Then the longest loss 6 in a row happened May 26 to June 1 recovered with June 9 to June 14 five game winner and now after taking the Washington series at home will welcome the Angels. LA Angels took the low road losing multiple games with isolated wins from April to early May. LAA started to warm up from early May and hit a stride on May 22 to May 29 winning eight games in a row. Since then Angels have only 1 back to back loss and the rest are all isolated losses with multiple winners in between. The Angels are coming in hot. Their starter CJ Wilson is a 8 game winner have not lost since CWS May 17 in Anaheim stringing 6 quality start winners and the Angels are 7-2 when he starts on the road. You have to love this guy home or away is pitching solid baseball. Baltimore O's are sending Brian Matusz 5-8 and loser of last 3 starts. He has 1 quality starts out of 4 in June. He has struggled in last 3 starts failing to go beyond 5 innings, but he is a 50/50 proposition at home, 3-3 team record, and the wagering public are behind the Angels today, but you know what's better? Going with the UNDER. Both pitchers are extremely UNDER with Matusz 2-12 and Wilson 3-12 and I think the O's are going to put up a fight much tougher than expected.
