The Line: New York Yankees -171 / Los Angeles Angels +161 --- Over/Under: 9 See the Latest Odds
The New York Yankees look to continue their recent success against the Los Angeles Angels when the two sides meet up again in the Bronx on Wednesday night.
The Angels look to snap out of their losing ways against the AL East as they continue their series with the Yankees on Wednesday night after dropping the first two games of the series and they will send Jered Weaver to the mound looking for a victory. The Halos haven’t had a great start to the season and while they have a good roster and play in a division that is very winnable they haven’t been able to generate any consistency and as such they are in a tough spot in the AL standings and will need to a fast turn around if they’re going to stay relevant in the playoff hunt. Weaver is 5-4 with a 5.18 ERA this season while Nathan Eovaldi, who will counter for the Yankees, is 6-2 with a 4.09 mark and has come out on the winning end of some pretty high scoring games this season.

The Yankees head into tonight’s game playing some of their best baseball of the season and while they have to take these wins with a grain of salt as they are coming against the Angels, they have to be happy they are trickling in as they had a bit of a tough go to start the year. The Yanks are 27-30 on the year and while they are just 4-6 in their last 10 they have won three in a row and will look to keep it going here as Eovaldi’s strong start should give the Yanks the edge despite Weaver’s proven track record.
The Angels are 6-2 in their last eight road games against a righty, 1-9 in their last 10 against the AL East, and 4-13 in their last 17 against a team with a losing record while the Yankees are 5-0 in their last five against the AL West, 4-1 in their last five against a team with a losing record, and 4-1 in their last five home games against a righty. LA has struggled mightily of late and while Eovaldi is due for a blow up I don’t see it happening here against an Angels side that hasn’t had much beyond Mike Trout so far.
