The Angels take on the Yankees in this evening matchup, as both teams aren’t performing to expectations.
Both squads are below .500 and aren’t scoring the way their managers would expect them to.
They have played rather average all season but the pitching matchup in this one favors the Bronx Bombers.
Weaver goes for the Angels at 5-4 and Eovaldi goes for the Yankees at 6-2.
The Angels have lost 2 of their last 3 and 3 of their last 5. They literally seem to win one then lose one, so you never really know what’s going to happen with this team.
They have scored some more runs as of late, over their last 4 games they have scored 23 runs. This is definitely a positive.
Over their last 8 games they’ve scored 45 runs, that’s over 5 a game.
So it looks like their offence is starting to show up.
Defensively, they’ve given up 4.6 runs per game and this is mainly why they have been unable to win games.
They rank 20th in runs allowed and 22nd in batting average against at .261.
Weaver takes the mound with an unimpressive 5.18 era and 1.48 whip.
He has been pretty good as of late though, so don’t count the Angels out on this one. He’s given up just 8 runs in his last 3 starts over 19 innings.
One of those starts was against the Orioles, where he gave up just 2 and another start was against the Pirates, where he also gave up only 2. Both of those offences are lethal.
The Yankees took game 1 of this series 5-2 and are similar to the Angels. They win one then lose one like a seesaw.
They have won 3 of their last 5 games and have been scoring just a little bit more lately, just like the Angels.
They’ve scored 24 runs in their last 5 games, which is just shy of 5 runs per game.
One of those games they scored just 1 but besides that, it’s been 5 runs 3 times and 8 runs once.
Eovaldi has been rock solid as of late with the exception of his most recent start, where he gave up 5 against the Orioles.
The Orioles offence is much more dangerous than the Angels, so it would be more important to note that prior to the 5 runs against the Orioles, he gave up just 7 runs in his 5 starts prior to that bad outing.
He sees to bounce back after a bad outing so I would count on that this game as well.

Free LA Angels vs. NY Yankees MLB Prediction:
Both teams are scoring better than they have throughout the season as of late but neither team is an offensive juggernaut.
They are fairly evenly matched here, the edge going to Angels because of Trout and Pujols being as dangerous as they are.
But pitching matchup goes to the Yankees here and since neither team is expected to score much.
Eovaldi just has to make through the top of the order because the bottom 4 are horrendous. This should be the deciding factor.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Yankees ML
The Angels can certainly run up the score pretty fast but we have to play the averages here.
Eovaldi has bounced back from poor starts and has generally played well.
Angels will likely score 2-3 depending on the top of the order.
Yankees will likely squeeze out the win with 3-4 runs.
Take the under if it’s 7.5, if it’s 6.5 buy the point.
