Chicago Cubs vs Los Angeles Angels 6/6/2023 Expert Picks, Tips and Odds

The Chicago Cubs and Los Angeles Angels are set to meet in an interleague game on Tuesday, June 6th, at 9:38 PM ET. The game will take place at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California, marking their first matchup since 2019. As the 2023 Major League Baseball season resumes, the Los Angeles Angels (31-30) will face the Chicago Cubs (26-32). The Angels are favored with a -133 moneyline and 9.0 runs for Tuesday’s series opener, which kicks off a three-game set. It’s important to note that this preview excludes Monday’s games, where the Cubs aimed to win a four-game series against the San Diego Padres at Petco Park. In the series, the Cubs emerged victorious in Game 2 with a 6-0 score and won Game 1 (2-1) and Game 3 (7-1). Chicago has won only six games and four of their past six.

The Cubs had a rough month of May, recording a 10-18 record and a run differential of minus-38. In 933 at-bats, they posted a batting line of .232/.319/.375, hitting 43 doubles and 29 home runs. Their pitching staff compiled a 4.80 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and faced a .266 opposition batting average. Over the past seven days, the Cubs’ hitting hasn’t been strong, with a batting line of .203/.291/.327 in 153 at-bats, including four doubles and five home runs.

Tuesday’s game in San Diego is expected to be Hayden Wesneski’s first appearance. The 25-year-old right-hander has made eight starts and one relief appearance this year, totaling 43 innings. He holds a 2-2 record with a 4.81 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, and a 32/11 K/BB ratio. Wesneski began the season as a starter but was relieved of his duties on May 13th after a challenging outing against the Minnesota Twins, allowing seven earned runs in 3.2 innings, resulting in an 11-1 loss. While Justin Steele (forearm) is on the 15-day injured list, Wesneski will fill in for him.

In his last outing against the Tampa Bay Rays, Wesneski pitched 3.2 innings in relief, surrendering only one earned run on one hit, two walks, and four strikeouts. He currently ranks in the 10th percentile for barrel percentage and the 9th for predicted batting average.

The Los Angeles Angels recently prevented a series whitewash by defeating the Houston Astros 2-1 in a four-game series at Minute Maid Park. However, they have lost three consecutive games against the defending World Series champions after winning two of three against the Chicago White Sox (5-2, 6-2, and 9-6). Overall, the Angels have won only three of their last ten games. The Miami Marlins swept them in their prior series at Angel Stadium. Despite their struggles, the Angels’ hitting has been strong, posting a batting line of .247/.331/.460 with 28 extra-base hits and 21 home runs in 437 at-bats. However, their pitching staff has struggled, recording a 4.11 ERA, 1.41 WHIP, and facing a .264 opposition batting average during that period.

On Tuesday, 33-year-old left-hander Tyler Anderson will take the mound for the Cubs. Anderson holds a mediocre 5.47 ERA, 1.59 WHIP, and a 33/25 K/BB ratio in ten starts covering 52.2 innings. He has had three good starts but has faltered in others. In his previous outing against the White Sox, Anderson gave up six earned runs on six hits and two walks in just four innings of work, resulting in a 7-3 loss. Anderson currently ranks 24th percentile for predicted batting average and 44th for slugging percentage.

Chicago Cubs vs Los Angeles Angels. Considering the offensive prowess of the Angels, particularly the recent performances of Luis Rengifo, Taylor Ward, and Shohei Ohtani, they are favored to win this game. It’s worth noting that Mike Trout has been in a slump, going 2-for-22 in his last six appearances, but his talent suggests he will bounce back soon. The recommended betting move is to bet on the over, with a predicted final score of 6-2 in favor of the Los Angeles Angels.
