Royals vs. Angels MLB Betting Odds & Pick from Brandon Lee: June 15th 2017

Kansas City Royals vs. Los Angeles Angels
MLB Betting Pick: Royals +119 odds (June 15th 2017)

I’m going to take a shot here with the Royals as a dog in Thursday’s series opener against the Angels. Kansas City just swept the Giants in a short 2-game set and have won 4 straight overall, outscoring their opponents in their last 4 games by a score of 35-12. The Royals have racked up 10 or more hits in 6 of their last 9 games. I see no reason they can’t keep it going at the plate against Ricky Nolasco, who is 2-7 with a 4.31 ERA in 13 starts. The value here with KC and why this is only a free pick, is that the Royals will be sending out Matt Strahm to make his first career big league start. You never know what the nerves will do to a kid in this spot, but based off what we have seen the past two years out of the bullpen, there’s reason to be optimistic. In his 44 innings as a reliever, he’s posted a 2.86 ERA with an impressive 56 strikeouts. Give me the Royals +119!

Twins vs. Angels MLB Odds & Pick from Will Rogers: June 4th 2017

Minnesota Twins vs. Los Angeles Angels
MLB Pick: Minnesota -114 odds (June 4th 2017)

The set-up: Albert Pujols made his 600th HR an even more memorable one when he launched a grand slam in the fourth inning last night to become the ninth player in major-league history to reach the milestone. The 7-2 victory evened LA’s record at 3-3 on its current seven-game homestand. The Tiwns had won the first two games of the four-game series and while Minnesota has had trouble at home (just 12-18), last night’s loss leaves them at an impressive 16-6 on the road and still in first-place in the AL Central at 28-24, overall. The Angels wrap their hoemstand today and look to reach .500 (29-30). LA may be in second-place in the AL West but Houston owns MLB’s best record at 40-16, leaving the Angels a distant 12 1/2 games out.

The pitching matchup: Jose Berrios (3-1 & 2.70 ERA) takes the mound for the Twins Ricky Nolasco (2-5 & 5.07 ERA) for the Angels. Berrios didn’t make his 2017 debut until May 13th but won each of his first three starts, However, his streak was broken Tuesday, when he allowed four runs on five hits and four walks in five innings against Houston, as the Twins fell 7-2. Berrios will be facing the Angels for the first time. Nolasco has struggled all season and his win-less streak reached six starts Monday, as he lost his third consecutive start. He surrendered six runs on seven hits in only 2 2/3 innings against Atlanta (Braves won 6-3), making it the shortest outing of the year for the 34-year-old. Nolasco went 15-22 in 58 outings over 2 1/2 seasons with Minnesota before being traded to Los Angeles but has made just one career start against the Twins, allowing three runs (two earned) over five innings in a victory at Minnesota on April 23, 2013 while with Miami.

The pick: Berrios was not sharp against Houston in his last outing (few pitchers have been in 2017) but note that he had given up just four runs and four walks in total over his first three outings of 2017, winning all three with a 1.71 ERA and a 22-4 KW ratio. Meanwhile, the Angels have lost all games in Nolasco’s six-start win-less streak with teh veteran posting a 6.19 ERA, Take the Twins.

Twins vs. Angels MLB Odds & Pick from Larry Ness: June 2nd 2017

Minnesota Twins vs. Los Angeles Angels
MLB Pick: Angels -120 odds (June 2nd 2017)

The Twins opened a 10-game road trip with a 4-2 win last night in Anaheim, the first of a four-game series with the Angels. The Twins were coming off a three-game sweep at home against the Astros, one in which they had allowed 40 runs. However, while Minnesota is just 12-18 at home to open 2017, the Twins own MLB’s best road winning percentage at 15-5 (.750) and its second-best moneyline mark at plus-$1,222. The Angels fell to 2-2 on their seven-game homestand and while they may be in second place in the AL West at 28-29, they are 11 1/2 games back of the Astros, who own MLB’s best record (38-16). Meanwhile, Minnesota’s 27-23 record puts them a virtual tie with the 28-24 Indians for first place in the AL Central.

The pitching matchup features Kyle Gibson (1-4, 7.85 ERA)  and JC Ramirez (5-3, 3.38 ERA). Gibson was once thought to be a “rising star” by Minnesota’s organization but he posted a 5.07 ERA last season (was 6-11) and got off to such a bad start in 2017 (never lasted more than 5.1 innings in six starts) that he was sent to Triple-A Rochester. His recall on May 22 had more to do with Phil Hughes going on the DL and the team’s bullpen woes. Gibson gave up three runs (two earned) on five hits and four walks in no-decision against Tampa Bay on Sunday, matching a season-high of 5.1 innings. He has allowed fewer than four runs in just half of his eight starts in 2017 with a 7.85 ERA, 1.96 WHIP and .329 BAA! Gibson is 0-2 with a 6.21 ERA in six career starts against the Angels (Twins are 2-4).

JC Ramirez is off back-to-back wins and has worked seven innings in four of his nine outings since joining the rotation. He has allowed only four ERs over his last three starts (1.77 ERA). He’s been outstanding,” Los Angeles manager Mike Scioscia said. “It is not an easy transition to make (to be a starter), especially since he’s spent his entire career working out of the bullpen. The big thing is his consistency. He’s working deep into games, and there (have) been very few where he hasn’t kept us in the game.” Ramirez is 3-1 with a 2.35 ERA in his past seven starts (Angels are 6-1). This will be his first career appearance against Minnesota but I’ll back him.
