Los Angeles Angels vs. Arizona Diamondbacks 6/15/24 MLB Latest Previews, Picks and Predictions

Los Angeles Angels (24-40) vs. Arizona Diamondbacks (30-35)


Los Angeles Angels vs. Arizona Diamondbacks 6/15/24 – The upcoming MLB showdown at Chase Field on June 12, 2024, features a clash between the struggling Los Angeles Angels and the slightly better positioned Arizona Diamondbacks. As the Angels and Diamondbacks prepare to face off, multi-handicapping insights suggest a game that could go either way given the inconsistent performances from both teams. With the game set for 9:40 PM ET and broadcasted on MLBN, fans and bettors alike are eyeing the statistics and trends to forecast the outcome.


The Angels after having a poor record suggest that they have not given up. A .234 batting average and an on-base percentage of .297 might not knock one out, but the team’s road performance against the spread is 20-11. Their ERA of 4.55 and a WHIP of 1.32 makes them look susceptible but 515 Ks for the team tells a different story. The real issue here is variance in their ability to hit for power, and their inability to cash in scoring chances, evidenced by their 72 home runs this year.


On the other side, the Arizona Diamondbacks with the team record of 30-35 have a slightly stronger team in terms of composition. They have scored a .244 batting average and an on-base percentage of .315, as well as a slugging percentage of .389. However, their pitching staff also has a relatively high ERA of 4.62 and WHIP of 1.37 compared to the Angels. However, in their recent games they have increased the tally scores and the totals have gone OVER in the last five games.

Griffin Canning (2-6, 4.65 ERA) vs. Slade Cecconi (1-4, 5.66 ERA)


Angels’ Griffin Canning is a less effective pitcher with a win-loss record of 2-6 and ERA of 4.65, facing some challenges this season. In spite of this, Canning hit 69 which was not a bad effort for a man with his problems. This can be seen where a pitcher has 2 games pitched with 70 hits and 47 Ks painted a picture of a pitcher who is able to stand his ground. His WHIP is higher as 1.38 and proneness to home runs (11 this season) might be the problem that will shift the dynamics especially against an attacking Diamondbacks’ team.


Slade Cecconi for the Diamondbacks has not been a very successful player this season having only one win and four losses and the average earned run for him was 5.66. However, his WHIP is lower at 1.14 over 41. That means that A’s ability to throw fewer pitches in 1 innings shows he can effectively manage his pitches better than Canning. Thus, even with 29 strikeouts and fewer walks (9), Cecconi should maximize the relative inaccuracy by trying not to allow Angels’ 10 home runs to become a real threat, especially confronting an Angels’ team eager to turn each opportunity into a goal.


MLB Odds/Point Spread: TBD, Total dds: TBD


As betting lines remain undetermined, the matchup presents an intriguing scenario for bettors. With both teams showing vulnerabilities, particularly in their pitching staffs, insights from the finalized odds will be critical for placing informed bets.


Los Angeles Angels Betting Trends


The Angels have shown some promise with a 3-2 record in their last 5 games and maintaining a solid performance on the road against the spread. However, the total going OVER in none of their last 5 games indicates a struggle in producing high-scoring encounters, a factor that bettors should consider, especially in games predicted to be closely contested.


Arizona Diamondbacks Betting Trends


Despite a less favorable 2-3 record in their recent outings and a concerning 1-4 against the spread in their last 5 games, the Diamondbacks have consistently hit the OVER in recent games. This trend suggests a potential for high-scoring games, making the OVER a potentially appealing bet for this matchup.


Los Angeles Angels vs. Arizona Diamondbacks 6/12/24 Betting Picks


Based on the analysis and recent trends, this game might be closer than the records suggest. Both teams have their vulnerabilities, but the Diamondbacks might have a slight edge due to their better on-base and scoring ability.


For bettors, this might be a game to consider the over on total runs, given both teams’ pitching struggles and the Diamondbacks’ recent trend of high-scoring games. Additionally, look for value in in-game prop bets related to specific player performances, especially from key hitters expected to exploit the pitching weaknesses.


With the game set to unfold at Chase Field, betting on the Diamondbacks to capitalize at home against a shaky Angels pitching staff could be wise. This pick aligns with the free expert baseball picks suggesting a home-field advantage in this matchup.
