Los Angeles Angels at Toronto Blue Jays Prediction

Heading into Saturday’s matchup between Los Angeles and Toronto, the Blue Jays are the favorite to pick up a win. Even though Shohei Ohtani has a strong ERA and WHIP, the Angels have lost 5 out of his 6 past starts. On the other side, Alek Manoah has been up and down of late but should benefit from a light-hitting Angels lineup. I like Toronto on the moneyline.
