Los Angeles Angels at Baltimore Orioles Prediction

Even though Los Angeles has lost the first 2 games of their series vs Baltimore, the Angels are the favorite on the moneyline. Both Patrick Sandoval and Dean Kremer are coming off starts in which they gave up 5 runs apiece. However, I see Kremer as a good candidate to bounce back, as the Angels’ offense has been up and down all year. I like the Orioles on the moneyline.
