A pair of disappointing American League teams begin a four-game series in the Bronx as the Angels take on the Yankees in a Monday night prime time matchup.
Los Angeles Angels
Despite trailing the Pittsburgh Pirates for most of the game on Sunday, the Angels were able to claw their way back to preserve the series win. It was a spirited win for the Angels, who now trail the Texas Rangers by eight game in the AL West.
Mike Trout and Albert Pujols are putting up powerful numbers, and the club is getting significant contributions from lesser-known guys like Yunel Escobar and Johnny Giavotella.
Matt Shoemaker will start for the Halos, and he’s hoping to shade a few points off that 5.50 ERA of his.
Shoemaker has been incredibly efficient over his last three starts, striking out 31 batters while walking none.
He’s also allowed just four earned runs in those three starts, a huge improvement from the 28 earned runs he allowed over his first seven starts.
New York Yankees
The Bronx Bombers are starting to find momentum despite being three games under .500.
A quality start from CC Sabathia led the Yanks to a 1-0 victory in Baltimore on Sunday, and now they head back to New York for a four-game series with the Angels.
The Yankees are still struggling at the plate, and it won’t get any easier now that Mark Teixeira is on the DL with cartilage damage in his right knee. So, they’ll need their starting pitching to be out of this world in order to compensate for the lack of offense.
That’s where Masahiro Tanaka comes in. Tanaka has been marvelous this season, posting a 2.48 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP.
He’s had problems pitching at Yankee Stadium, though. In four home starts, Tanaka has allowed 14 earned runs. The Yankees will need him to improve on those poor home numbers as the season progresses.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Angels are 10-9 on the road.
- Angels are 3-7 when Shoemaker starts.
- Yankees are 7-3 when Tanaka starts.
- Yankees are 18-10 as favorites.
- Yankees O/U is 3-6-1 in their last 10 games.
Free Los Angeles Angels vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction:
Both Matt Shoemaker and Masahiro Tanaka have been incredible over their last few starts, and neither offense has done much this year.
The Yankees have struggled at the plate all season, and the Angels would’ve scored just one run on Sunday had Pittsburgh’s bullpen not blown the game. With the Yankees at -160, the best value in this game is the total.
I think it’s going to be a low one.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Under 8
