(MLB) Tampa Bay vs. LA Angels, 05/03/2021 9:38 PM, Score: 7 - 3
Money Line: 105.00 LA Angels (Home)
Result: Loss
The set-up: Neither team has played great this year. Tampa is 14-15 and LA is 13-13. We have a couple of really good starters going head-to-head in the opener of this four-game series though, but it's one that I think favors the hard-hitting home side, as I expect Tyler Glasnow to finally show some regression here after an unreal start to the season. Glasnow (3-1, 1.67 ERA) gave up five hits over seven scoreless in a 2-0 win over the A's in his last outing.

The pick: Shohei Ohtani (3.29 ERA) gave up four runs over five innings, while striking out nine in a 9-4 win over Texas. LA had an early lead so Ohtani gave up a long-ball by being extra aggressive. I think these starters are a "wash," but I give a big nod to the Angels line-up. The Rays have been better at home than on the road as far as their offense is concerned. I think LA offers great value in this spot for sure.

This is a 10* COACHS CORNER on the Angels.
