Casey Mize (1-6, 4.54 ERA) vs. Griffin Canning (3-8, 4.72 ERA)


Casey Mize has shown signs of promise throughout his 1-6 record this season with his 4.54 ERA and 1.49 WHIP, yet his 56-19 strikeout-to-walk ratio over 73.1 innings highlights his ability to handle difficult situations. Mize excels at controlling his pitch movement when at his best; his key strength being pitch control. However, his tendency to give up hits (90 total) and long balls (7 homers) remain areas of concern; to beat Angels effectively Mize will need to stay composed while limiting big hits while remaining at his best when pitching well.


Griffin Canning‘s 3-8 record and 4.72 ERA mirror many of Mize’s struggles and strengths. While his 1.33 WHIP indicates slightly better control of baserunners, his 15 home runs allowed in 87.2 innings are an obvious weakness. While his strikeout total of 59 indicates his ability to challenge batters effectively, 30 walks may indicate lapses in control; Canning must avoid giving up significant hits against Tigers power hitters to maximize his success and leverage his strengths while limiting homer risk.


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


As of yet, betting odds for this match-up have yet to be finalized; however, analyzing both teams’ current form and statistics can provide some indications. The Tigers have been slightly more consistent lately – going 3-2 over their last five games while Angels have maintained this mark – and may hold an advantage given Mize’s potential dominance when on his game.


Detroit Tigers Betting Trends


The Tigers have gone 3-2 over their last five games, showing some resilience. Unfortunately, however, they are 2-3 against the spread in those matches; on the road they have posted an 18-20 record against them. Two out of the Tigers’ last five home games went over this season too, suggesting there may be an uneven nature to their performances yet with them usually producing higher run totals than expected when at home.


Los Angeles Angels Betting Trends

Their road record against the spread stands at 24-15; two out of their last five totals went over in two consecutive games for them while 19 out of 39 home games have seen this occur as well, suggesting high scoring matches when they play at home.


Detroit Tigers vs. Los Angeles Angels 6/29/24 Betting Picks


Based on past analysis and betting trends, this game promises to be closely contested. Both teams have shown similar performances recently with starting pitchers boasting comparable statistics; however, the Tigers might have an edge due to their more consistent bullpen performances.


Bettors looking for value might want to focus on betting the OVER for total runs due to both teams’ tendency for high-scoring games. Furthermore, given the Angels’ struggles at home and Canning’s vulnerability for giving up home runs, Tigers could be an appealing pick on the moneyline; best sports handicappers might lean more toward them due to their marginally superior performance overall and Mize potentially providing a dominant performance.
