Prediction

Angels 5, Giants 4

Money line (ML)

The surging Giants shut out the Angels 5-0 Tuesday night. With the victory, San Francisco is 7-1 over its last eight games. Over that stretch, the Giants have averaged 8.0 runs per game on a 1.028 OPS.

Los Angeles has also had its offense cranked up of late. The Halos are 11-6 and averaging 6.35 RPG over their last 17 contests.

BACK THE ANGELS (-105) in this one. San Francisco is a good baseball club but not .644-winning-percentage good. There is a lot of artificial ERA deflation going on both with Gausman as a starter and in the bullpen department.

Los Angeles is 7-3 over its last 10 home games; look for the home side to earn a series split in this Wednesday matinee.

Run line/Against the spread (ATS)

PASS on the inflated run line prices.

Over/Under (O/U)

There isn't too much conviction here, but the lean is on the OVER 8 (-115). There is plenty of ammunition to fade both starters and fade the Giants bullpen. Both offenses also look to be too far out over their skis and unlikely to live up to current paces moving forward.

Still, on a breeze-out-to-center day in Southern California and with a decent price on the 8 runs, the Over has enough value.
