Free MLB Pick
After a bad start to the season Jared Weaver has gotten back on track and has been pitching great in the last month. The Angels have won their last 5 games when he has gotten the start. In his last outing he gave up 3 earned runs in 6 innings in a 8-6 win over the Detroit Tigers. In his last 5 regular season road starts against the Yankees he is only 1-3 with an ERA of 8.60, but in his last 5 starts overall he is 4-0 with an ERA of 1.98. Nathan Eovaldi gave up three earned runs in 4 innings in his last outing, which was a 5-3 win over the Oakland A’s. He is 2-0 at home on the season and in 2 starts facing the Angels in his career he is 0-1 with an ERA of 6.75.
Even though the Halos have dropped 2 straight games I have to go with them with Weaver on the hill. He has not enjoyed much success in New York, but he will have a good outing tonight and the Angels will win this game.
