The Toronto Blue Jays will be looking for another win as they host the Los Angeles Angels this Monday. The Blue Jays are currently 26-45 after beating the Astros in their last game. Meanwhile, the Angels are 35-37 after losing to the Rays in their last game. Now, both teams will be looking to improve upon their respective records in this game.

Angels Look To Inch Closer To .500 Record

The Los Angeles Angels have only won 35 of their first 72 games. In addition, the team has lost two of its last three games as the team continues to underachieve. Now, the Angels will turn to Felix Pena as the starting pitcher for this contest. He has been pretty solid this season with a 4.55 ERA along with a 4-1 record. The Angels have struggled with their starting pitching this season as the team currently has the second-highest ERA for starting pitchers in the league and he could potentially inject some life in the team’s staff which would help the Angels turn their season around.

The Los Angeles Angels are led by outfielder Mike Trout who has been tremendous over the last few seasons. Last season, Trout hit 39 home runs along with 79 RBIs as he was an MVP candidate for the majority of the season. However, Trout is also a magician in the field as he has made tons of dazzling plays in the outfield since he came into the league. So far this season, however, he has been a bit underwhelming as he only has a .296 batting average along with 19 home runs and 46 RBIs.

Toronto’s Offense Wakes Up On Sunday

The Toronto Blue Jays are currently in fourth place in the AL East division as the team has only won 26 of its first 71 games this season. In addition, the team has also lost 22 of its first 35 road games this season. The main reason for the team’s struggles has been due to the lack of production from the team’s lineup. The Blue Jays currently rank 28th in the league in runs per game as the team is currently averaging less than four runs. However, the team’s offense exploded yesterday as the team managed to score 12 runs in a nice shutout victory.

The Toronto Blue Jays are led by first baseman Justin Smoak who was solid last season. Last season, Smoak hit 25 home runs along with 77 RBIs. However, he struggled with his contact hitting as he only batted .242 but had a .350 on-base percentage. In the team’s first 51 games of the season, he is only batting .225 with 12 home runs and 34 RBIs. Although those statistics are disappointing to say the least, he does also have a .364 on-base percentage.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Overall, the Angels are the better of these two teams. The Blue Jays have looked like one of the worst teams in all of baseball so far this season while the Angels have looked consistently decent so far this season. I expect this game to be close throughout but I think the Angels will do just enough to squeak out of this game with a road victory.

Prediction: Los Angeles Angels

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Since both of these teams possess below average pitching staffs, I have to lean to the over in this game. Furthermore, both teams have solid lineups that can score at least four runs each due to some young talent in their respective lineups so I think that this total is too low. I can see this game being somewhere in the realm of 6-4 so I will recommend the over in this game.

Prediction: Over
