Los Angeles Angels Odds
The Angels’ bullpen appeared to unlock the secrets of pitching at altitude, when it delivered 5
2/3 scoreless innings Saturday during a 5-2 victory in 11 innings over the Rockies. Matt
Andriese earned a seven-pitch save, his first of the season.
Jared Walsh not only hit a go-ahead three-run home run in the 11th inning for the Angels, he
now has a home run in four consecutive games. The second-year player also has three
consecutive multi-hit games and four of them in his past five contests.
The Angels will send Andrew Heaney (3-3, 4.04 ERA) to the mound after the left-hander
followed a scoreless seven-inning start against the Padres with a rough outing against the
Rangers, where he gave up five runs (three earned) over five innings.
Colorado Rockies Odds
The Rockies managed just one hit over the final six innings in their 11-inning loss to the Angels
on Saturday. After a promising series victory against the Dodgers last weekend, the Rockies are
just 1-4 since, and they have won just four of their last 14 home games.
Not only did outfielder David Dahl return Saturday from a stint on the IL because of a sore back,
he delivered his first hit since Aug. 9. Also back from the IL is right-handed reliever Wade Davis,
who was out with a strained right shoulder.
Right-hander Ryan Castellani (1-2, 5.34) will pitch in the series finale after struggling in his last
two starts, giving up a combined nine runs in 6 1/3 innings.
Angels at Rockies Betting Pick for September 12, 2020
With two struggling teams who are likely to miss the playoffs, anything can happen, but the
Angels should benefit from a veteran starter in Heaney, who has a 2.70 ERA in two career
outings in Denver.
Angels at Rockies Betting Pick: Angels (-166), Rockies (+144)
Angels 6, Rockies 4
Angels at Rockies Best Bet for September 13, 2020
Perhaps day baseball at the edge of the Rocky Mountains will bring two struggling offenses to
life Sunday, but after what each team showed in Saturday’s 11-inning game, there is nothing to
think runs are ahead, even if Coors Field always suggests otherwise.
Angels at Rockies Best Bet: GAME UNDER 12.5 (-110)
