Washington Nationals vs Los Angeles Angels Predictions 4/12/2023


The Los Angeles Angels have been an unreliable team to bet on this season, often dropping games they could have won due to various factors.


Fans have been left disappointed by the Angels’ bullpen, which has frequently failed to hold leads late in games.


Despite having two of baseball’s brightest stars, LA’s performance has not lived up to expectations, and they cannot blame the glare of the spotlight in Southern California.


The Angels are performing well, scoring 6.00 runs per game (3rd) with a .241 batting average (19th) and a .750 OPS (14th).


They have hit 16 home runs (5th) and stolen three bases (23rd) in 2023. On the pitching side, the Angels have a 4.25 ERA (12th) and a 1.31 WHIP (11th), with four quality starts.


On Wednesday, Griffin Canning will take the mound at Angel Stadium after returning from the injured list.


The young righty missed the entire 2022 season due to a back injury but recently made a rehab start (5.0 innings, one earned run, and ten strikeouts) for the Angels’ Single-A affiliate, the Inland Empire 66ers.


Canning last pitched for the Angels in 2021, posting a 5-4 record with a 5.60 ERA and 1.48 WHIP in 62.2 innings across 14 appearances.


However, he performed much better in 2020, with a 3.99 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP and even won a Gold Glove that year.


  • The Los Angeles Angels are 11-4 SU in their last 15 games at home.
  • The LA Angels are 7-3 SU in their last 10 games at home against Washington.
  • The total went OVER in 10 of LA Angels’ last 15 games with an opponent in the NL East Division.

Washington Nationals vs Los Angeles Angels. The MLB pick for this game is the Los Angeles Angels. Wednesday’s matchup between the Nationals and the Angels presents an intriguing situation for bettors.


On one side, the Angels are starting pitcher Griffin Canning, who has had injury issues and hasn’t pitched in the major leagues since 2021.


On the other side, the Nationals have MacKenzie Gore, who has been impressive in his two starts this season with a 2-0 record and a 2.38 ERA.


Given the Angels’ bullpen struggles, the Nationals should be able to at least cover in the series finale. The Angels will win but will fall short ATS 5-4.
