Dylan Bundy pitched four innings and allowed five hits and two earned runs in Minnesota's 7-3 win over the Toronto Blue Jays last Saturday night. Bundy has pitched five innings or less in six of his last seven starts, and he carries a 6-5 record with a 5.01 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP into this start against the Angels.

Minnesota Looking For More Consistency On The Road
The Twins bounced back from a pair of losses to the Los Angeles Dodgers this week with a 4-0 victory in their series opener against the Angels on Friday night. Gio Urshela went 3-for-4 with two runs and one RBI and Tyler Mahle pitched six scoreless innings in the shutout win.
With that victory, Minnesota is still just 2-6 SU in its last eight road games. Bettors taking Minnesota as their Twins vs Angels prediction on Saturday night will be hoping that Friday's win was a sign of the club turning things around away from home.
The Angels Were Enjoying A Rare Win Streak Prior To Friday's Loss
Los Angeles came into this series with a 3-0 SU record over its last three games, marking the first time since June 19 that the Angels had won three straight games and just the third time since then that they've won two games in a row. But that winning streak came to an unceremonious end on Friday night as the club fell to 2-9 SU in its last 11 home games.
The Angels rank 25th in the majors in run production this season averaging only 3.85 runs per game. Shohei Ohtani doesn't have much support around him on offense with Mike Trout still on the injured list with a rib injury. There is currently no timetable for Trout's return.
Twins vs Angels Picks & Insights
Twins: Keys To Victory
Minnesota is 6-1 SU in its last seven games when scoring four runs or more. Dylan Bundy hasn't been particularly sharp this season and he owns a 7.15 ERA in 22.2 career innings pitched against the Angels, so it may be safe to assume that the Twins' offense will need to do its part to make Minnesota a winning Twins vs Angels prediction.
Angels: Keys To Victory
Reid Detmers has pitched extremely well in his last five starts since returning from a brief stint in the minors. That trend is likely to continue at home on Saturday night, but Los Angeles will only cash in as a Twins vs Angels pick if Ohtani and the offense can provide Detmers with some run support.
