Money Line: -130 LA Angels
I've been on the Angels quite a bit lately, and I'll continue riding them Monday. Los Angeles is finally starting to play up to its potential here over the past week. They have won six straight while outscoring the opposition 26-10 in the process.
With a chance to reach the .500 mark for the first time since early April, the Angels (24-25) will be motivated for a win in Game 1 against the Yankees tonight. They couldn't have a better starter on the mound with a chance to reach the break-even point.
Jered Weaver is 6-1 with a 2.61 ERA and 0.899 WHIP in 10 starts this season, once again proving he's a Cy Young candidate. Weaver has been untouchable at home, going 4-0 with a 0.83 ERA and 0.490 WHIP in four starts. He'll be up against the struggling Phil Hughes, who is 4-5 with a 4.94 ERA and 1.373 WHIP in nine starts for New York.
Weaver is 5-2 with a 4.84 ERA and 1.288 WHIP in 10 career starts against the Yankees. He has allowed 3 earned runs in 15 innings while with a 1-0 record in his last three starts against New York. Hughes is 1-2 with an 8.70 ERA and 1.984 WHIP in four career starts against Los Angeles. He has yielded 12 earned runs over 8 1/3 innings in his last two starts against the Angels.
The Angels are 6-0 in their last 6 games overall. Los Angeles is 45-15 in Weaver's last 60 home starts. The Angels are 4-0 in Weaver's last 4 home starts vs. a team with a winning record. Los Angeles is 5-0 in their last 5 games vs. a right-handed starter. The Yankees are 1-5 in Hughes' last 6 starts as an underdog. Roll with the Angels Monday.
