On Friday, the Minnesota Twins and Los Angeles Angels are set to face off at Angel Stadium. The game is scheduled to begin at 6:38 p.m. PT.


The Twins enter the matchup as -125 money line favorites, and the game total is 8.


With a record of 24-20 straight up and against the run line, Minnesota will send right-hander Joe Ryan to the mound as their starter in the series opener.


Ryan has been impressive this season, boasting a 6-1 record with a 2.16 ERA and 0.84 WHIP in eight outings.


The Twins hold a four-game lead over .500 and are 3.5 games ahead of the Cleveland team in the AL Central race. Offensively, Minnesota scores an average of 4.70 runs per game, ranking 11th in the league.


However, their batting average of .231 (25th) and OPS of .717 (16th) indicate room for improvement.


On the bright side, the Twins have hit 60 home runs (6th) but have struggled in the stolen bases category, ranking 29th with just 16 steals this season.


On the pitching side, the Twins’ staff has been solid, boasting a 3.41 ERA (3rd), a 1.16 WHIP (2nd), and a league-leading 22 quality starts.


Joe Ryan, a 26-year-old right-hander, will take the mound for Minnesota in tomorrow’s game. He has been outstanding this season, tallying 57 strikeouts while issuing only seven walks in 50 innings pitched.


Ryan has secured victories against teams like the Kansas City Royals, Houston Astros, New York Yankees (twice), Boston Red Sox, and Chicago Cubs.


In his most recent start, he bounced back from his first season loss by holding the Chicago White Sox scoreless over six innings, striking out ten batters.


Ryan’s impressive performances have solidified his status as a reliable starter for the Twins.


  • Minnesota is 1-4 SU in their last five meetings with the Los Angeles Angels.
  • The Minnesota Twins are 1-4 SU in their previous five games on the road.
  • The Twins are 2-4 SU in their last six games on the road against the LA Angels.

Minnesota Twins vs Los Angeles Angels Predictions 5/19/2023


The Angels are back over .500 after Thursday’s win over Baltimore. Four games behind Texas in the AL West, Los Angeles is in fighting shape for a long bout this season.


LA scores 5.07 runs per game (7th) and hits .261 (8th) with a .751 OPS (10th). It’s hit 59 long balls (7th) and stolen 19 bases (28th) in 2023. The Angels’ pitching staff has a 4.40 ERA (20th) and a 1.31 WHIP (16th) with 12 quality starts. 


Detmers gets the start for LA at The Big A. The southpaw is coming off a five-inning effort against Cleveland, holding the Guardians to two runs on six hits and two walks.


The 23-year-old, who has a 41:14 K: BB ratio, surrendered three or fewer runs in five of seven outings this season.


Los Angeles (22-22 SU and 21-23 RL) is countering with lefty Reid Detmers. He’s 0-3 with a 4.89 ERA and 1.51 WHIP in seven starts.


  • The total stayed UNDER in 7 of the LA Angels’ last ten meetings with the Twins.
  • The Los Angeles Angels are 1-4 SU in their previous five games at home.
  • The Angels are 4-2 SU in their last six games at home against Minnesota.

Minnesota Twins vs. Los Angeles Angels. The MLB Pick for this contest is the Minnesota Twins. The Twins have the third-highest run-line winning percentage as road favorites (58.3%) and are 17-14 overall as run-line favorites.


The Angels have a 7-12 run line record (36.8%) at home and a 9-13 run line record (40.9%) after a win.


Take on Minnesota to win by at least two runs on Friday. The Twins will be rested and ready to go in the series opener with their ace on the mound, using an early lead to pull away from the Angels.


Detmers is 0-1 with a 6.00 ERA in two appearances (nine IP) against Minnesota and could struggle to give LA the length it needs to play competitively for nine innings.


Ryan is one of the better pitchers in the game and is coming off his third double-digit strikeout performance this season.


I bet he will be electric tomorrow, holding the Angels’ bats to more swings and misses than they’re accustomed to. Prediction: The Twins win 6-3.
