NY Yankees vs. LA Angels,

Score: 1 - 5
Money Line: -130 LA Angels
The Los Angeles Angels have been a money-making machine for me over the past week. I knew it was only a matter of time before this talented bunch got on track, and they've done just that. Los Angeles (25-25) has reached the .500 mark for the first time since early April.
The Angels look to get on the plus side of the break even point tonight in Game 2 against the New York Yankees. They won their seventh straight game last night despite ace Jered Weaver being pulled in the first inning with a back injury. They did so by posting season-highs in runs (9) and hits (15).
Dan Haren has been an unlucky starter this season with a 2-5 record despite a 3.76 ERA and 1.206 WHIP. He made sure not to get unlucky with poor run support in his last start, pitching a complete game shutout in a 3-0 win over the Mariners.
Haren clearly loves the challenge of facing the Yankees, going 5-1 with a 3.43 ERA and 1.173 WHIP in 10 career starts against New York. He pitched a complete game shutout in a 6-0 victory in his last start against the Yankees. Andy Pettite sports a 4.73 ERA and 1.497 WHIP in 28 career starts against Los Angeles.
The Yankees are 2-8 in their last 10 games as a road underdog. The Angels are 7-0 in their last 7 overall. Los Angeles is 6-0 in their last 6 games as a favorite. New York is 11-25 in the last 36 meetings in Los Angeles. The Yankees are 1-5 in Pettitte's last 6 road starts vs. Angels. Take the Angels Tuesday.
