The Cleveland Guardians and Los Angeles Angels meet Monday in MLB action at Angel Stadium. The Cleveland Guardians look to snap a three-game losing streak. The Los Angeles Angels look for a win after splitting their last six games.

The Cleveland Guardians have scored seven runs in their last three games and three or fewer runs in three of their last six games. The Guardians are 1-7 this season when scoring three or fewer runs. Jose Ramirez leads the Guardians with 21 hits and 20 RBI, while Myles Straw and Steven Kwan have combined for 31 hits and 9 RBI. Shane Bieber gets the ball, and he is 1-0 with a 2.25 ERA and 16 strikeouts this season. Bieber is 3-0 with a 2.08 ERA and 23 strikeouts in his career against the Angels.

The Los Angeles Angels have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last eight games. The Angels are 8-3 this season when scoring four or more runs. Shohei Ohtani leads the Angels with 15 hits and 9 RBI, while Mike Trout and Jo Adell have combined for 26 hits and 13 RBI. Michael Lorenzen gets the ball, and he is 1-1 with a 4.82 ERA and 9 strikeouts this season. Lorenzen is 1-1 with a 4.50 ERA and 10 strikeouts in his career against the Guardians.

The Guardians are 1-4 in their last 5 Monday games and 20-8 in their last 28 games as a favorite. The Angels are 6-2 in their last 8 games as an underdog and 5-11 in their last 16 overall. The over is 6-1 in Guardians last 7 road games. The over is 6-2-2 in Angels last 10 overall. The Guardians are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Los Angeles and 39-16 in the last 55 meetings.

The Cleveland Guardians are going to be favored because of the pitching matchup, as Bieber has been dealing this season and is going deeper into games as he gets his reps up. Lorenzen has been hit or miss, and he’s been a below average pitcher overall these last three years. With all that said, the Guardians are having issues putting offense together and no matter the pitcher, the Angels are heating up offensively. At home, there’s value with the Angels and the plus money. I’ll bite.
