Brewers vs Angels Final MLB Betting Analysis
This is a case of one starting pitcher getting on track in his last start and the other falling off a cliff in his last start. Freddy Peralta got back on track with a stunning performance against the Cincinnati Reds.
It was easily one of the best performances so far this season in MLB. Peralta shouldn’t regress off that performance because it’s obvious that he changed a couple of things after the devastating way he threw in his first start of the season.
The same can’t be said for Matt Harvey. Harvey already regressed. It should be much tougher for Harvey to get over how he performed against the Rangers than it will be for Peralta to keep it going. The Angels could get blown out on Tuesday night.
