MLB Pick: Jack Jones betting the Mets -114 odds over the Angels on May 20th 2017

Los Angeles Angels vs. New York Mets
Betting Pick: Mets -114 odds (May 20th 2017)

The New York Mets are undervalued right now because of their recent seven-game losing streak.  But they put an end to that skid yesterday in a 3-0 victory over the Angels, and I look for them to win again due to their edge on the mound today.

Zack Wheeler has held his own this season, going 2-2 with a 3.76 ERA and 1.226 WHIP in seven starts.  He has been at his best of late, going 1-0 with a 1.62 ERA in his last three starts coming in.

Alex Meyer has been beat up in the early going for the Angels.  He is 2-1 with a 5.59 ERA and 1.604 WHIP in four starts this season, including 1-1 with an 8.68 ERA and 2.144 WHIP in two road starts.

The Angels are 19-40 in their last 59 road games vs. a right-handed starter.  Los Angeles is 1-5 in its last six road games.  The Mets are 5-0 in their last five interleague games.  New York is 6-0 in its last six interleague home games vs. a right-handed starter.  Bet the Mets Saturday.

White Sox vs. Angels MLB Odds & Pick from Scott Rickenbach: May 17th 2017

Chicago White Sox vs. Los Angeles Angels
MLB Pick: White Sox +158 odds (May 17th 2017)

MLB Run is a long-term 151-132 +$16,450 with star rated picks and just 2 losing days with MLB star rated picks the last 9 days! Consider joining him for a HUGE Wednesday! Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach MLB Wednesday Late Free Pick Chicago White Sox Money Line (+) @ Los Angeles Angels @ 10:05 ET – If the handicapper you follow is just giving you the biggest favorites on the board every day you have to start to wonder, don’t you? That’s not hard, right? Just go pick up a big money line favorite and then brag about winning percentage even though the units eat you up when those big faves go down and they always eventually do. You can get hot for a while on money line favorites because they are supposed to win, of course, as that’s why they’re favored in the first place. However, long-term, you will rarely (if ever) see a capper make a sizable profit in a money line sport by playing big favorites over the course of a full season. In any event, that is why plays like this are the ones that are worth an investment. Here is a big dog that we can grab and fade a very over-priced favorite. Yes, the Angels have won the first two games of this series but let’s not forget they previously lost 8 of 12 games heading into this ChiSox series. Getting the start for the Halos tonight is Matt Shoemaker. Though he’s off of a good home start, he previously was hit hard in ALL 3 home starts this season! He’ll be opposed by the White Sox Miguel Gonzalez and he is off of a rough outing but previously allowed 2 earned runs or less in 3 of his last 4 starts. Those 3 outings saw Gonzalez allow a combined 3 earned runs on just 12 hits over 23 very sharp innings! In other words Gonzalez is fully capable of a dominating outing and I like my chances here against an Angels lineup that, more often than not, has struggled at the plate this season. Look for an upset here as the ChiSox avoid the sweep! Free Pick on Chicago White Sox as a big dog on the money line in late night action Wednesday. Best of luck, Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach

MLB Pick: Will Rogers betting the Angels -116 over the Tigers on May 13th 2017

Detroit Tigers vs. Los Angeles Angels
MLB Betting Pick: Angels -116 odds (May 13th 2017)

The set-up: The LA Angels had been held to one run in each of their previous two games (including in a 7-1 loss Thursday night against Detroit) but exploded for 14 hits en route to a 7-0 triumph over the Tigers on Friday night. Mike Trout was back in center field for LA after returning from a hamstring injury as the designated hitter on Thursday. He had a two-run HR, giving him a hit in 18 of his last 19 games. J.D. Martinez was back to the lineup Friday for the Tigers and went 1-for-3 in his season debut. Martinez had been sidelined since suffering a strained ligament in his right foot during spring training. The Tigers fall to 3-4 on their nine-game road trip and are 17-17 on the season, in third-place in the AL Central but just two back of the first-place Twins.The Angels happen to be in second place in the AL West but at 18-20, are already eight games back of the first place Astros!

The pitching matchup: Daniel Norris (2-2 & 4.55 ERA) gets the nod for the Tigers up against Ricky Nolasco (2-2 & 4.31 ERA) of the Angels. Norris has surrendered four ERs in three of his last four outings, including a no-decision at Oakland on Sunday in which he yielded five runs over just 4 2/3 innings. He has worked fewer than five innings in each of those three starts and has not lasted more than six since his season debut (6 1/3). Norris will be facing Los Angeles for the first time in his career. Nolasco has allowed three runs or fewer in five of his seven starts this season but has won only two of those contests. He settled for a no-decision at Oakland on Monday, despite giving up just two runs on five hits while striking out a season-high 10 in seven innings. Nolasco has made nine career starts against Detroit, going 2-4 with a 4.09 ERA (teams are 3-6).

The pick: Norris was traded to the Detroit Tigers along with Matt Boyd and Jairo Labourt in exchange for David Price back in 2015 and was considered the “key player” in that deal according to the Tigers. However, the Tigers announced that Norris would start the 2016 season on the disabled list, due to a lower back issue suffered during spring training. Norris would make just 13 starts in 2016, finishing the season with a 4–2 record and a 3.38 ERA (Tigers were 8-5 in his starts). Much was expected from him in 2017 but so far, that hasn’t been the case. Nolasco’s looked good in three of his last four outings, posting a 2.41 ERA in those three, along with a 17-2 KW ratio. I’ll side with the Angels.
