Angels Try To Close Out Three-Game Set With St. Louis With a Win

St. Louis Cardinals @ Los Angeles Angels – Thursday July 4, 2013

The Los Angeles Angels stayed on their hot streak by beating the St. Louis Cardinals in the opening game of a three-game series between the two teams. The online sports book experts note that the win was the seventh in a row for the Angels who are slowly creeping back up the AL West standings. The Angels are hoping that its current good fortune starts to affect everyone in the team’s pitching rotation, including Joe Blanton.

The St. Louis Cardinals are not in dire need of a win, but it would be nice to stop the current losing streak they are on. The Cardinals are 3-7 in their last 10 games and have a two-game losing streak going. The online betting experts note that the gap between third and fourth place in the NL Central race is 11 games. The Cardinals are in second, so they would not fall very far if they lost this game to the Angels. But if the Cardinals want to make a post All-Star break run for the NL Central pennant, then they are going to need to start taking on some wins before the break comes.

Why the Angels Will Win

Los Angeles pitcher Joe Blanton is having the kind of a season that most people would like to forget. His 2-10 record and 5.07 ERA represent the worst start he has ever had to a season in his MLB career. In his last three starts, he is 1-0 and has only given up a combined total of five earned runs. The sports betting experts know that, if the Angels can get Blanton back on track, then they will have a formidable pitching staff heading into the second half of the season. Blanton seems to be responding and has been able to pull his game together as of late.

Why the Cardinals Will Win

The St. Louis Cardinals are always confident when ace Adam Wainwright takes the mound. Wainwright shows his consistency again by building an 11-5 record and a 2.22 ERA for the season. In his last 10 starts, he is 7-3 with a 1.89 ERA. He has decisions in every game he has started except for two. He already has four complete games this seasons and he has pitched two shutouts. This is probably not the pitcher that Joe Blanton was hoping to face in a game that Blanton and the Angels need to win.

The Bottom Line

Adam Wainwright is the ideal pitcher for St. Louis to have on the mound to help stop the Cardinals’ losing ways. Joe Blanton has been showing signs of improvement, but he has still been shaky against teams that can hit the ball. This could be a close game between these two teams, but Wainwright should be more than enough to be a winning difference.

Pick: St. Louis Cardinals
