Struggling Pitchers To Take the Mound in Giants-Angels Series

The Angels vs Giants Odds Favor San Francisco to Bounce Back After Dropping 2023 Series to the Angels

Can The Giants Build On Recent Series Win over Houston Astros?

Life without Shohei Ohtani and with Mike Trout being limited to 29 games has not been kind to the Los Angeles Angels. Will it get any better facing a San Francisco team with the second most home wins among National League West Division teams? The Angels vs Giants odds favor the Giants in the series opener.

The Angels hadn’t won a series against the Giants since 2012 before outscoring San Francisco 11-6 in the last two games in the lone series between the teams in 2023. Just three of the last 11 games between the Giants and the Angels went under the total.

The MLB bets today have the Giants at -135 to win Friday’s series opener, +150 odds to cover at -1.5 on the run line, and the Angels priced at +115 to win on Friday.

When looking at the MLB playoff odds, San Francisco is 17th at +6000 in the odds of winning the World Series. Only the Chicago White Sox, Miami Marlins, and Oakland Athletics have longer championship odds than the Angels.

Are the Kids Alright For The Angels?

The six-game road trip is not off to a promising start for the Angels as the Arizona Diamondbacks hit three home runs including a grand slam in an 11-1 win in the series finale as the Diamondbacks took two of the three games from the Angels.

If there is a silver lining, some of the young hitters for the Angels have made themselves at home on the road.

Logan O’Hoppe, a 24-year-old catcher, is hitting .272 on the road. The 22-year-old first baseman Nolan Schanuel, 25-year-old outfield Jo Adell, and 23-year-old shortstop Zach Neto have combined for 12 home runs and 23 extra-base hits on the road this season. Keep that in mind when it comes to the player prop options in this season.

The total has gone over in four of the last five games for the Angels and that could play a role in the Angels vs Giants odds during this series.

Can Young Starters Deliver For the Giants?

A season ago, San Francisco’s starting pitchers couldn’t get a break. Despite being 10th in the majors and fourth among National League teams in ERA, the starters were 29-50. Colorado was the only National League team with fewer wins from its starting rotation.

While San Francisco’s starters are on pace to win more games, the ERA has dropped from 4.12 to 4.48, with opponents batting .267 against the starters for the Giants.

Kyle Harrison and Keaton Winn are expected to start for the Giants in this series.

Harrison is coming off a strong outing with four hits and one run allowed in 6.1 innings of work. However, he allowed at least four runs in each of his previous three starts.

Winn’s ERA has jumped from 3.18 to 6.94 over his last four starts.

Five of San Francisco’s last seven matchups with American League West teams have finished under the total.

Who’s Hot

  • Adam Cimber, Los Angeles Angels P: In his first three appearances in June, Cimber have up three hits and no runs in 2.1 innings.
  • Camillo Doval, San Francisco Giants P: Doval has allowed two hits and no runs with five strikeouts in four innings over his last four appearances.
  • Logan O’Hoppe, Los Angeles Angels C: O’Hoppe is 11-for-21 with five runs, four doubles, and a home run during his six-game hitting streak.
  • Mike Yastrzemski, San Francisco Giants OF: Six of Yastrzemski’s last nine hits have gone for extra bases.

Who’s Not

  • Thiaro Estrada, San Francisco Giants 2B: Estrada is 1-for-19 with seven strikeouts over his last five games.
  • Hunter Strickland, Los Angeles Angels P: Strickland has surrendered eight hits and eight runs in three innings in his last three outings.
  • Taylor Ward, Los Angeles Angels OF: Ward is 3-for-25 with seven strikeouts over his last eight games.
  • Keaton Winn, San Francisco Giants P: Winn has given up 23 hits and 24 runs in 12.2 innings as he is 0-4 in his last four starts.

Angels vs Giants Injury Update

Infielders Brandon Drury, Miguel Sano, and Evan White join pitcher Chase Silseth as well as outfielder Jake Marisnick are on the injured list for the Angels.

Infielders Nick Ahmed and Marco Luciano are out for the Giants.

Angels vs Giants Betting Preview

The Giants have won six of their last seven home games against the Angels.

Four of the last six games between the Angels and the Giants finished over the total, while five of the last six games for the Angels went over the total as well.

For San Francisco, 17 of the 32 wins this season have come as a favorite. The Angels should be used to playing as an underdog with the Angels being favored in just four games this season.

The Angels are 21-13 against the run line on the road with 18 of those games finishing over the total. The total is at 7.5 for the series opener with plenty of early money coming in on the game to finish over the total.

While the wind could have an impact, there is no chance of rain in the forecast for the series opener.

It is pretty hard to have much confidence in the Angels even if Los Angeles has covered in 21 of 33 games this season as a road underdog.

These are the series that the Giants need to win if they want to be a part of the MLB playoff bracket. The Giants are currently tied with the St. Louis Cardinals for the final playoff spot in the National League.
