Dodgers at Angels Prediction

There isn't much historically for either pitcher in the Pitcher vs. Batter metric. LAD starter Alex Wood has faced two Angels starters allowing one hit and one walk in three plate appearances. LAA starter Andrew Heaney has held the Dodgers line-up to a career .182 batting average in 11 at-bats. Current form does favor Wood though with three consecutive quality starts allowing a combined five runs in 21 innings pitched, but the home/away metric favors Heaney. The left-hander has been exceptional at home this season with a 2.18 ERA 0.97 WHIP and Wood holds an unflattering 4.04 ERA. What Wood does have in his favor is that the Angels have been burning their backers’ money against lefties this season with a record of 6-16 scoring over a full run less compared to their scoring against right-handed pitching. This sets up a dual play for me.
