Los Angeles Angels vs Boston Red Sox 4/14/2023 Expert Picks, Odds and Analysis

The Los Angeles Angels will travel to Fenway Park to take on the Boston Red Sox in an MLB matchup on Friday. The Angels are coming off two wins against the Nationals, which helped them recover from a recent slump where they lost four of their previous six games. Currently over.500, the Angels are looking to continue their momentum on the East Coast, where they will play back-to-back series in Boston and New York. In terms of offense, the Angels rank eighth in runs scored per game (5.42), twentieth in batting average (.240), and thirteenth in OPS (.741). They have hit 17 home runs this season, ranking sixth in the league, but have only stolen five bases, ranking 21st. Taking the mound for the Angels in Friday’s game will be Sandoval, who will make his debut against Boston. Despite losing his last start, Sandoval was on track to win before the Angels’ bullpen faltered. So far this season, he has given up two earned runs on eight hits and three walks in 11 innings pitched. 

  • The Los Angeles Angels are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games on the road.
  • The total hung OVER in 4 of the Angels’ last 6 games against an opponent in the American League.
  • The Angels are 6-3 SU in their last 9 games against an opponent in the AL East Division.

Los Angeles Angels vs Boston Red Sox 4/14/2023 Expert Picks, Odds and Analysis

In MLB action, the Tampa Bay Rays proved to be a force to be reckoned with this week as they swept the Boston Red Sox, joining the ranks of Washington, Detroit, and Oakland in discovering the Rays’ formidable potential. Despite Boston’s best efforts, they were unable to overcome the undefeated Rays. The Red Sox rank seventh in the league in terms of run production, scoring an average of 7.46 runs per game, while placing 22nd in batting average at .235 and 16th in OPS at .731. Boston ranks eighth in home runs hit with 17 and fifth in stolen bases with five. However, their pitching staff has yet to produce a quality start this season and has a 5.42 ERA (26th) and a 1.44 WHIP (22nd).

On Friday, 26-year-old Tanner Houck will make his Boston debut at Fenway Park. The 6-foot-5 right-hander has previously started against Baltimore and Detroit, winning both games. In ten innings pitched this season, he has allowed five runs on eight hits and three walks. Houck faced the Los Angeles Angels twice last season in relief outings, with his performances varying greatly. In his debut outing, he gave up seven runs on five hits in 2.1 innings, resulting in a loss. However, he was much more effective in his second outing a little over a month later, allowing only one hit in 2.0 innings and earning the win.

  • The total went OVER in 10 of the Boston Red Sox’s last 14 outings.
  • The Red Sox is 1-4 SU in their last 5 games.
  • The total went  OVER in 5 of Boston’s last 7 games at home.

Los Angeles Angels vs Boston Red Sox. The MLB pick for this game is the Los Angeles Angels. Following a tough series against the Tampa Bay Rays, the Boston Red Sox lost outfielder Adam Duvall (.455 BA, 1.54 OPS) to a fractured wrist sustained in Monday’s game. With a season that may prove lengthy and arduous, the Sox are likely to encounter more losses than wins. Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Angels find themselves at the top of their division, and a victory in this game is crucial to maintain their position and prevent the risk of losing Shohei Ohtani to free agency. Boston’s batting lineup has struggled against left-handed pitchers, recording only 35 hits and 39 strikeouts in 142 at-bats (27.4% strikeout rate). As a result, the Los Angeles Angels are predicted to win by a score of 6-5.
