The Los Angeles Angels have been dominant over the first two games of their three-game series against the visiting Kansas City Royals, scoring eight runs in each victory while allowing a total of four. Since posting a 14-5 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Friday, Kansas City has registered only nine runs during a four-game losing streak. The Angels look to continue their high rate of production and keep the Royals at bay when the teams meet for the series finale on Wednesday. Should you expect Los Angeles to pile up the runs again, or is there value in Kansas City to break out and bring a return on the money line?
The latest MLB odds for Wednesday from William Hill Sportsbook list the Angels at -145 (risk $145 to win $100) against the Royals. Other MLB lines of note include the Tampa Bay Rays at -160 against the Washington Nationals and the Cincinnati Reds listed as slight money-line favorites (-111) versus the Milwaukee Brewers.

Top MLB picks for Wednesday, June 9
The model likes the New York Mets at -130 on the money line against the Baltimore Orioles. Taijuan Walker (4-2, 2.17 ERA) will be looking to redeem himself after a loss at San Diego last Thursday in which he surrendered four runs on seven hits and four walks over five innings. The 28-year-old right-hander, who had gone six starts without a defeat, gave up just one earned run and eight hits over 22 frames while going 3-0 in his previous four outings. One of those outings was against Baltimore on May 12, when Walker allowed one run and four hits in seven innings en route to victory.
Walker is 3-1 with a 2.68 ERA in seven career starts versus the Orioles and has a good chance to pick up another win as he faces former Mets star Matt Harvey (3-6, 6.62). A former All-Star who was expected to be the rock of New York's rotation for many years, Harvey has fallen on hard times since posting a career-high 13 victories in 2015, going 22-40 with a 5.91 ERA in 99 games (91 starts) with five different teams.
