Angels Profits Have Been Soaring With Bridwell on the Mound

On yet another winning streak, the 95-57 Cleveland Indians are on the verge of a sweep against an Angels team that’s vying for the final playoff spot in the American League. While they’ve slowed down on the runline front, it’s almost impossible to bet against the Tribe right now – so let’s do it.

  • The Indians are 10-0 SU in their last 10 games against the Angels.
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Angels’ last 4 games when closing out a series.
  • Danny Salazar has a 6.07 ERA through 29.2 innings pitched during the daytime this season.

A game and a half back of the Twins for the final spot in the postseason, the Angels really need a win this afternoon and they’ll send their ringer Parker Bridwell (8-2, 3.71 ERA) to the mound in the effort. The rookie has quickly become the best starter in the Angels rotation and he’s actually by far the most profitable pitcher in baseball ($1,513) with just 17 starts under his belt.

Winning four straight and 12 of their last 13 in games Bridwell has started, the Angels have been rallying around their stud rook and giving him plenty of run support (4.88 runs per game). The Angels also own a combined .286 average against Indians starter Danny Salazar (5-6, 4.52 ERA).

Speaking of Danny Saladz, he could get tossed in his first start this month. The strikeout specialist has been erratic when healthy this season and he’s been awful on the road, compiling a 5.56 ERA in 11 starts away from Cleveland.

The Angels are being offered in the range of +130 on the moneyline and this feels like a good opportunity to fade the Tribe.
