Boston Red Sox vs. Los Angeles Angels Pick – MLB June 6, 2022

The Los Angeles Angels are back home after a rough trip out east to the Bronx and Philadelphia. They were swept, which continued on from a sweep at home against the Toronto Blue Jays.

The Angels have lost ten straight games, as they’ve allowed the AL West to get away in the blink of an eye. They must have missed being the same old regular medicore Angels, because they’re quickly back to looking like that team.

The Angels have typically been a .500 baseball team over the last decade. They are back around that mark, as the Angels carry a record of 27-28 into Monday night.

For a second, it looked like the Angels were ready to take a big step forward and be competitive with the Houston Astros. The ‘Stros and Angels were toe-to-toe for much of the first two months, then Anaheim brought out the red carpet for the Astros.

Houston has an 8.5-game advantage on the Angels going into the new week.

Their latest loss was the biggest blow, as they blew a 4-run lead and lost in the 9th inning, 9-7. When the comeback was brewing, the writing was on the wall for the Angels.

It’s a blow to a team that had an end to their nine-game losing streak right in front of them. The Angels will try again in the opener of a four-game series against the Boston Red Sox.

The Red Sox are riding a four-game winning streak following a 7-1 win over the Reds and a three-game sweep in Oakland. This isn’t the toughest opponents, but they won the games they should have to get to .500 at 27-27.

The Red Sox should continue to play up and down baseball this season. Red Sox fans will have to accept that there are going to be good and bad months. Threatening the top of the AL East doesn’t look like a good possibility.

Michael Wacha is expected to be in the saddle for the Red Sox at Angel Stadium on Monday night. He’s pitching well for the Red Sox and will look to stay hot in California. Noah Syndergaard counters for the Angels.

Red Sox vs. Angels Prediction:

Michael Wacha is quietly going about his business for the Red Sox this season. Wacha enters Angel Stadium with an ERA of 2.43 and a 1.01 WHIP. Several pitchers have had good numbers on the mound, with Wacha getting lost in the wash.

He is coming off a standout performance against the Reds on Tuesday. Wacha allowed 3 hits and 1 unearned run in a 2-1 win last week at Fenway Park.

He’s been in far better shape at home than on the road. Before that start, Wacha gave up 7 hits and 5 earned runs through 4.1 versus the White Sox in Chicago.

Wacha is entering Angel Stadium with an ERA of 4.12 and a 1.17 WHIP as opposed to a 0.86 ERA and 0.86 WHIP on the road. This has been a career-saving year for Wacha, as he posted an ERA of 6.62 and a 5.05 the last two years.

Wacha was wavering, but he has his business in order to remain in a major league rotation. He’s had success in 36 at-bats against the Angels. They are hitting just .175 with no RBIs, so he must have some confidence tonight.

The Red Sox starters have been getting solid run support from the offense this season.

Boston is the fifth-best team in the majors, with 4.89 runs per 9 innings. They are hitting .259 for the third-best mark in the majors. Syndergaard is back home for his next start tonight, which is much-needed after struggling at Yankee Stadium.

Boston Red Sox vs. Los Angeles Angels Betting Trends:

Red Sox

  • Record (Last 10): 5-5
  • 4-0 overall in their previous four games on the road
  • 6-1 overall in their previous seven games versus a right-handed starter
  • 1-4 overall in their previous five games versus the Angels
  • 1-4 overall in their previous five games on a Monday
  • UNDER is 6-2-2 in their previous ten games versus the Angels

Angels

  • Record (Last 10): 0-10
  • 4-1 overall in their previous five games versus the Red Sox
  • 23-9 overall in their previous 32 games at home versus a team with a losing record
  • 0-4 overall in their previous four games as a betting favorite
  • 5-16 overall in their previous 21 games
  • 3-7 overall in their previous ten games versus a team with a losing record

  • Syndergaard has to feel good about pitching at Angel Stadium tonight. He is coming off a rough performance at Yankee Stadium, allowing 7 hits and 5 earned runs in 2.1 innings of work.

    Thor is a wreck on the road with an ERA of 7.88 and a 1.75 WHIP.

    However, he’s been a different pitcher at home in Anaheim. Syndergaard has a 1.48 ERA and 0.86 WHIP through 25 innings. Tonight looks like a good opportunity for him to get his confidence back in check.

    The offense got the bats going yesterday, but the pitching let them down again. They also lost a 11-10 final in Toronto last week. That’s not on the offense, though the Angels need to be more consistent.

    As gut-wrenching as this losing streak has been for the Angels, they have to keep things in perspective and realize they could be much worst off right now. They’re still around .500 and can turn things around.

    Syndergaard gives them a fine chance of getting back on track tonight. I will bite and take the Angels to end their losing streak in this one.
