Angels Looking for First Win in Series Against Host Braves Saturday

Richards continues to stabilize Angels rotation

Veteran Garrett Richards is having an excellent season so far. He is in the top 10 of the American League in ERA after lowering it to 3.09 over his last two starts. He has allowed one run in those last two starts over 15 innings, striking out 13 and walking just one batter. Richards has had one bad start all year, in which he did not make it out of the first inning on May 30 against the Oakland A's.

Braves send Floyd to the bump for game two

Atlanta will counter on Saturday night with veteran hurler Gavin Floyd. Floyd has faced the Angels quite a bit in his career after spending time in Chicago with the White Sox. He has not been successful, pitching to a 2-6 record with a 5.27 ERA. The Braves have moved into a tie atop the National League East with the Washington Nationals after a win on Friday night over the Angels.

We find the betting odds for Saturday night's contest between the Angels and the Braves at Sportsbook.ag. Despite dropping the opener of this series, their second straight loss, the Angels are favorites to win this contest on the road. Richards has been downright dominant this year, which is why we like the Angels to grab the victory with the -1.5 (+140) spread later tonight. Place your bets now and enjoy all of the MLB action on the schedule today.
