Los Angeles Angels         

The Angels fly into this Tuesday night matchup sporting a 15-19 record that ranks them 4th overall in the AL West. At the present time the Houston Astros lead the division with their 21-14 record, giving them a 5 ½ game lead over Los Angeles. With this in mind, it’s clear that Los Angeles needs a dire turnaround in order to avoid falling too far behind in the divisional race. So can the Angels break their 2-game losing streak this Tuesday night? By the looks of it, tonight’s online MLB betting odds are banking on the Angels getting the win on the road. All in all this is somewhat surprising, considering who the Angels are sending to the mound this evening. Kole Calhoun is getting the start for the Angels. But will his 6.23 ERA and 1.15 WHIP on the season be enough to upset Detroit on the road?

Players to Watch: Andrelton Simmons (3 HR, 17 RBI, .285 BA), Kole Calhoun (8 HR, 19 RBI, .215 BA), and Albert Pujols (5 HR, 17 RBI, .224 BA).

Detroit Tigers  

The Tigers pounce into tonight’s contest sporting a 15-16 record that ranks them 3rd overall in the AL Central. The division is currently led by the Minnesota Twins, who own a 5-game lead over Detroit. Having said this, it’s clear that the Tigers are already falling behind in the playoff race. And with a 3-3 record in their last 6, Detroit isn’t going to cover any ground. Gordon Beckham is the man tasked with turning this ship around this Tuesday night. So far this season, Beckham has amassed a 3.47 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP. Considering who his counterpart is, Beckham shouldn’t have too hard of a time leading his team to a victory at home tonight.

Players to Watch: Miguel Cabrera (1 HR, 13 RBI, .298 BA), Nicholas Castellanos (2 HR, 9 RBI, .278 BA), and Jeimer Candelario (1 HR, 7 RBI, .228 BA).
