Boston Red Sox at Los Angeles Angels Prediction

It appears that for the Los Angeles Angels to pick up a win, their pitching will need to be perfect, as the offense has been dreadful. But despite their struggles, Los Angeles enters as the betting favorite. However, Shohei Ohtani has been roughed up in his past 2 outings. I recommend taking Boston to pick up the win, getting some positive value on the moneyline.
