Angels vs. Guardians Odds
+100 / -122
+100 / -122
To kick off Sunday’s MLB slate, the AL Central’s Cleveland Guardians host the AL West’s Los Angeles Angels.
These clubs split the first two games of this series as each squad looks to claim the rubber match. Will Cleveland defend its home diamond, or can Los Angeles secure the series?
Here’s a look at the odds, as well as my Angels vs. Guardians betting pick.
Left-hander Patrick Sandoval is slated to take the mound for the Angels. He’s started the campaign in relatively solid form and is 3-1 with a 3.41 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP through seven starts.
However, his underlying metrics suggest regression is looming. Sandoval ranks in the 42nd percentile or lower in xERA/xwOBA, xBA and xSLG.
If the expected regression hits in this contest, it could be a short outing for the left-hander. But, even if the regression doesn’t register, he should still be a good fade candidate in the strikeout market.
Sandoval ranks in the 15th percentile in K% this season.
Angels vs. Guardians Betting Pick
Sandoval has recorded four or fewer strikeouts in each of his past two starts, something likely to continue in this matchup. Through 39 career plate appearances against the left-hander, this Guardians roster possesses a mere 12.8 K%.
Through four career starts against Cleveland, Sandoval has surpassed 4.5 strikeouts just once.
Pick: Patrick Sandoval Under 4.5 Strikeouts (+120)
