Minnesota Twins vs Los Angeles Angels Predictions 5/21/2023

The Sunday afternoon game will be Ohtani’s next planned start. The dynamic two-way player hopes to return from a disappointing performance in his most recent game against Baltimore (five earned runs, including three home runs).

Minnesota Twins vs Los Angeles Angels. The MLB pick for this game is In Ohtani’s last five starts against teams with winning records, the Angels are 5-0, and in his previous eight games on grass, they are 7-1.


Additionally, they have a history of 19-7 over their past 26 home games, with the total set between 7.0 and 8.5, and 13-4 over their last 17 games against starters who pitch with their right hand.


The Twins have a record of 8-23 in their previous 31 road games against teams with winning records, 3-10 in their last 13 games against the American League West, and 2-6 in their previous eight road games against right-handed starters.


At odds of -145, wager on the LA ML. Minny’s road splits are terrible (.208/.287/.364/.650), and he’s playing against one of baseball’s best starters. 


He also had a bad performance, which should sharpen his competitive edge tomorrow. Ohtani’s career ERA against the Twins is 2.38.


The Angels have 102 extra-base hits this season against right-handed pitchers, and they perform well at home (.263 BA/.333 OBP/.463 SLG/.796 OPS in 20 GP) and during day games (.264 BA/.338 OBP/.426 SLG/.764 OPS in 17 GP).
