I’m backing the Los Angeles Angels as a small road favorite in Game 3 of this series with the Minnesota Twins. After getting shut out 5-0 last night by Minnesota, the Angels will be hungry to get their bats going tonight against the washed up Carl Pavano.
While Ervin Santana is winless on the season, he is still one of the most underrated starters in the game. The righty posted a 3.38 ERA and 1.220 WHIP in 33 starts in 2011. He’s off to a slow start this year, but he’s clearly coming around. Santana has allowed 5 earned runs and 15 base runners over 15 innings while striking out 13 batters in his last two starts.
Carl Pavano faced the Angels once this season, giving up 5 earned runs over 6 2/3 innings back on April 11th. In his last start against Minnesota, Santana pitched a complete game while allowing just 1 earned run over 9 innings in a 5-1 victory on August 2nd of 2011. I believe the Angels have the better starter and the better line-up in this one.
The Angels are 41-21 against the money line after scoring 2 runs or less over the last 2 seasons. The Twins are 14-37 in their last 51 home games. Minnesota is 13-41 in their last 54 games overall dating back to last season. The Twins are 4-22 in their last 26 games as an underdog of +110 to +150. Bet the Angels Wednesday.
