The Miami Marlins are on a bit of a heater after sweeping the Washington Nationals over the weekend in four games. Miami is playing so well lately that they are close to getting back to .500 for the first time since it was 12-12 back in early May. With the way the Mets are playing, I don’t see a world where Miami makes a run at the division. But, they are at least keeping things competitive and fighting for each win. 

The Angels, on the other hand, continue to be a total disaster and remain in fourth place in the AL West. Despite having two of the best players of our generation, Shohei Ohtani and Mike Trout, the Angels are far from contenders this season,

Here are the odds for this game at WynnBET.

Angels vs. Marlins Prediction and Pick

The Angels may be a struggling team, but they have a massive edge on the mound tonight with Shohei Ohtani making his 14th start. Ohtani is following up his breakout season on the mound with an even better 2022 so far with a 2.68 ERA and 1.01 WHIP. As good as those numbers are, he’s been improving with each start over the last month and is nearly untouchable right now. He hasn’t allowed an earned run over his last three starts and managed a 1.52 ERA in five starts during June. There isn’t much else to say about Ohtani here other than he also hit .298 in June. He really is the most versatile player this sport has seen in a century. Too bad he’s on such a trash team. 

While I normally avoid betting on the Halos, they do match up well against Trevor Rogers (4-6) today. To be fair, most college teams would match up well against Rogers the way he is playing right now. With a 5.56 ERA and 1.59 WHIP, he is making a case for one of the worst starters in the National League. He’s been steadily getting worse too with a 7.06 ERA in June. The nail in the coffin here though is Rogers’ ugly 8.39 ERA when pitching at home. In six starts at LoanDepot Park, Rogers allowed 23 earned runs in 24 ⅔ innings with seven home runs and 10 walks. 

The Angels don’t have much value on the ML so let’s swing for the fences and hope that Rogers implodes and the Halos can cover this series finale. 

Pick: Angels -1.5 (+100)
